Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts are an American football franchise based in Indianapolis, Indiana. The team is currently a member of the South Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL).

The franchise was officially founded in 1953 in Baltimore, Maryland, but its history can be traced back to the Dayton Triangles, established in 1913 and a founding member of the NFL. After a series of changes, they took the name Baltimore Colts to replace another team of the same name founded in 1950. Playing at Memorial Stadium in Baltimore, the Colts were the first team to have cheerleaders. In 1984, the team moved to Indianapolis, and they would play at the Hoosier Dome, which was later renamed RCA Dome, then from 2008 the team moved to Lucas Oil Stadium.

As the Baltimore Colts, the team won 4 NFL Championships (3 NFL Finals in 1958, 1959 and 1968 and the Super Bowl in 1971). Since moving to Indianapolis, the team won the Super Bowl in 2007. In 1998, the team became the first in league history to win 12 or more games in 5 consecutive seasons before extending that record to 7 consecutive seasons after the 2009 season.

Colts logos and uniforms have essentially remained the same since the team’s debut in 1953. The helmet is white with a blue logo. Blue jerseys have white stripes on the shoulders, while white jerseys have blue stripes. The team also wears white pants with blue stripes down the sides.
