As the 2023 NFL season approaches, the Colts are preparing to celebrate the 40 years since the franchise moved from Baltimore to Indianapolis.

Time really does fly. For a lot of Indianapolis Colts fans out there, they've been with the organization since Day 1 from when the team made the move from Baltimore to Indy. That happened all the way back in 1984.

Can you belive that it's going to be 40 years since the relocation? Well, believe it, as the Colts announced they're ready to celebrate the 40-year anniversary this upcoming season. Matter of fact, the Colts plan to honor things during the home season opener later this year in September. This is something fans won't want to miss.

""Sometimes it feels like the Colts moved to Indiana just yesterday, but we are so honored to celebrate 40 seasons of Colts football in Indianapolis," Indy Chief Sales & Marketing Officer Roger VanDerSnick said via the team website. "We look forward to using this milestone to engage with friends, fans and neighbors across Colts Nation to get them ready for the 2023 season and the next era of Colts football." "

Colts fans are also pretty fired up after seeing the new patch that will be showcased on the team jerseys, as it sure stands out. Come September, the Colts will be bringing back former players, coaches and more from the 1984 team. It's only going to make the celebration that much better for people to enjoy.

Throughout the past 40 years, the Colts have provided the team's supporters with so much joy, including a Super Bowl win led by legendary quarterback Peyton Manning. Despite a rough season in 2022, the future looks bright for this squad, as plenty of people can't wait to see who the team picks with the No. 4 overall selection in the NFL Draft.

After that, the Colts will get to work to prepare for the 2023 campaign. This team is ready to try and bounce back and make plenty of noise this fall. It's been a tremendous 40 years in Indianapolis and more good memories are surely on the way.
