Indy Eleven Return to IUPUI for the Spring Season
Indy Eleven returns to Michael A Carroll Stadium at IUPUI on Saturday, April 11th, to kick-off their 2015 spring season. Tickets available at the Indy Eleven website for this first match of the season at “The Mike”.
Built in 1982, the Michael A. Carroll Track & Soccer Stadium, created in the city of Indianapolis' drive to become the "Amateur Sports Capital of the World," fittingly bears the name of the late Carroll, whom many IUPUI people consider the campus's "greatest cheerleader." Carroll, who was killed tragically in a 1992 plane crash, was a former Indianapolis deputy mayor and special assistant to Sen. Richard G. Lugar.
Carroll Stadium was built to host the 1987 Pan American Games, a major international event. This world class facility also hosted the 2006 and 2007 USA Track and Field Championships, the 1988 Olympic Team Trials - Track and Field, IHSAA Lacrosse State Championships, the Horizon League Championships, the 2001 World Police and Fire Games, NCAA soccer & track competitions and other marquee events.
This collaboration has supported the revitalization of this great facility. Further corporate and individual sponsorships of Carroll Stadium are available.
