Donation goal


The Blue Crew is proud to partner with Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Frank Reich’s kNot Today Foundation for the 2022-2023 NFL season. The mission of kNot Today is to end the sexual abuse, exploitation and trafficking of children. Donations raised during the season will be used to further the education and training of children, educators, and healthcare workers across Indiana to better identify and report sexual abuse, exploitation and trafficking. “When we came to Indianapolis in 2018, the crossroads of America, and learned the scale of this issue in our own backyard, we knew we had to be intentional about fighting this darkness with our time, platform and resources,” said Frank Reich. “We are humbled to be the beneficiary of The Blue Crew’s efforts to protect children across Indianapolis and to be a part of a city and fanbase that is actively fostering a strong community.”

          INDY BLUE CREW             FAN CLUB

Representing the Indianapolis Colts


The Fan Club for the Indianapolis Colts (Blue Crew) started circa 1993-94 when the Indianapolis Colts were not the hottest game in town. Back when Reggie Miller was scoring 8 points in 9 seconds while trying to defeat the evil New York Knicks in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Colts were merely something to do on a Sunday when the Pacers weren’t playing. Still a few fans would show up across the street in the South Lot, (current location of LOS) and mostly take grief from the opposing team fans. You see there often were more fans of the opposing teams at that time. Fans of the Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, or Dallas Cowboys would gear up and head down from Carmel to the RCA dome to watch their “favorite” teams. The small but determined Colts fans would sit in the parking lot and maybe take up the whole first row (10 spots) in the lot. You could throw a football and not much worry about hitting anyone. Then one day in 1995 Jim Harbaugh threw a Hail Mary touchdown pass to Aaron Bailey, (which to this day I say he caught). The Colts had missed going to SB XXX by one play.


Soon the bandwagon started to get bigger. More people started showing up before games to “tailgate” . So finally the “Blue Crew” fan club was born. The name Blue Crew actually came from a Kansas City fan, who announced to some Colts fans who had attended a game at Arrowhead Stadium, that “You played a great game today Blue Crew” and the name just stuck. The South Lot continued to grow with Blue Crew people and soon we outnumbered the other fans. Peyton would arrive in 1998 and again, the bandwagon continued to grow. In 2005 ground was broken on the new Stadium, causing the Blue Crew to move down the street to the lot at South & Pennsylvania. The Colts, with Peyton and the Blue Crew continued to grow and in 2007 Colts became Super Bowl XLI Champions. The Blue Crew has continued to grow and is considered one of the premier fan clubs of the NFL The Blue Crew has the distinction of having their own tailgating lot which is now located at Touchdown Town on the North side of Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis.


On Colts game days, you’ll find parking lots around Lucas Oil Stadium full of tailgaters, many of whom belong to the Blue Crew fan club. “I remember when the Blue Crew was six people and a beat-up old camper,” said Cahn, “Now it’s one of the great tailgating clubs of the country.”
