Indy Adding Pro Soccer Team

Last updated on Thursday, January 17, 2013

(INDIANAPOLIS) - A pro soccer team is coming to Indianapolis.

The yet-to-be-named team will begin play at IUPUI's Michael Carroll Stadium in 2014.

The team's owner is Keystone Group CEO Ersal Ozdemir who played soccer in his native Turkey before moving to Indiana 20 years ago.

The team will be the 12th to compete in the North American Soccer League (NASL).

Ozdemir, and team president Peter Wilt, met with stakeholders across the state to gain support for the team.

Ozdemir says it will be a long road, and urged the entire state to support the team.
