It’s a far cry from this time last season when it comes to the Indianapolis Colts season ticket demand.
Over the last month, the 2013 Colts season tickets have dwindled from around 5,500 to just above 1,100 and it looks like the 87-game streak of sell outs will continue for Indianapolis.
The final 1,100 will first be offered to those on the waiting list first before being put on sale to the public.
If season tickets remain available on June 12, fans will get a chance to see the ones still for sale during the Colts open veteran minicamp practice that Wednesday afternoon.
“We thought there would be a high demand,” Colts Chief Operating Officer Pete Ward said. “We didn’t expect they would go this quickly. It’s nice.”

With rosters rising to 90 players and teams around the league in the midst of OTAs, one name familiar to Colts fans is missing from the playing field.
Former wide receiver Austin Collie remains unsigned and has not played in a regular season game since early in the 2012 season.
After catching at least 54 balls in his first three seasons in the NFL, Collie ruptured his patellar tendon in his right knee in Week Three last season and never returned to action.
Head injuries have plagued Collie throughout his career and like Kuharsky, it’s hard to see a team taking a chance on the BYU product.

Training camp is under three months away and Jim Irsay announced on Tuesday that the team will be back in Anderson come late July.
This will mark the fourth straight year that the Colts will call Anderson home for a three week stretch during late July and early August.
“We’re very pleased the Colts find Anderson and Anderson University a summer home,” Mayor Kevin Smith said, adding the city appreciates both parties.
A training camp schedule is yet to be released but in years past the Colts have held a pair of night practices along with open practices in the afternoon.
