The Colts encourage all fans to arrive early at tour stops. The line for player and cheerleader autographs may be cut off at any time to ensure the tour remains on schedule. Inclement weather or traffic may cause for late arrival or early departure. All Summer Tour stops will take place rain or shine. Colts players’ names will not be announced prior to their arrival in each city. Fans will be allowed one autograph per person; however, fans may get back in line for additional autographs.
