The Brickyard Battalion, established August 3rd 2011, was instituted to bring a Professional Soccer team BACK to the great city of Indianapolis! We are an independent supporters group of Indy Eleven, which was announced on January 16th, 2013 in front of a crowd of hundreds at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis. The BIG announcement was joined by owner Ersal Ozdemir, team President Peter Wilt, Governor Pence and many other public and soccer dignitaries.
Over the years, we’ve seen our team at the bottom of the table and as 2016 Spring Season Champions. No matter the results on the field, the support we give will never waiver. We’ve seen a tremendous amount of growth and we look to continue making the BYB the best supporters group in lower division soccer.
The Brickyard Battalion and its affiliate group members mission is to create an inspiring fan environment and a groundswell of support for Indy Eleven. We will do this through fostering an increased level of passionate support through community events, gatherings and volunteerism. The BYB was created to enable community coordination and participation in activities that will lead to the eventual development of in-stadium support for our team on an unprecedented scale for a professional soccer team in Indianapolis and in the NASL.
Despite our growth and success, we can’t sit back and relax. We need you to help us promote the beautiful game of soccer in the state of Indiana! Tell your friends, join the Brickyard Battalion, come to our gatherings, form a BYB affiliate!
