Indy Eleven Looking Tough, Doing Art 

NUVO News checked in on the final hour of the final day of the final round if initial tryouts for the Indy Eleven.

Indy's inaugural season as an expansion member of the North American Soccer League kicks off next spring.

Team President Peter Wilt took a moment to catch me up to speed:

[Editor's Note: Just realized the video plays the interview twice in a row. My apologies. I'm heading to a water quality testing basic training workshop, so don't have time to fix it. Thanks for understanding. :)]

People who want to express their soccer fandom through art work are welcome to join Wilt and other Indy Eleven crew members at Saturday's Fountain Square for a "tifo" workshop.

Here's how their press release explains it:

Choreographed displays of support for the team created by fans (often called "tifo") give soccer its unique flavor, and Indy Eleven fans are already preparing for next year with a fan art workshop this Saturday, 7 September at the Hoosier Dome in Fountain Square.

Hosted by Brickyard Battalion affiliate group Slaughterhouse-19, the event runs from 12pm to 3pm and will offer fans the chance to learn tips and techniques on creating their own banners from those with years of experience. Paint, fabric and a projector will be available for use. If you have your own art, please bring it on a flash drive.

Indy Eleven staff will also be on-hand with some giveaways to thank those taking the time to help build the best supporter culture in the North American Soccer League!
