Thumbs up: Pro soccer is within Indy's grasp 

00thumbupNEW.jpg

At the behest of an unnamed group of investors, Peter Wilt, former president and general manager of the Chicago Fire Major League Soccer team, has set up shop Downtown to investigate the feasibility of bringing pro soccer to Indiana. Based on what he's heard so far, Wilt added, he is "cautiously optimistic -- there's going to be professional soccer in Indianapolis." Expect a decision and formal announcement at the annual convention of the National Soccer Coaches of America, which will be held in Indy Jan. 16-20. Meanwhile, soccer fans can visit here to pledge support (organizers estimate a season pass could cost as little as $125). The Brickyard Battalion fan club is hosting meet and greets with Wilt — both from 7-8 p.m., on Jan. 4 at the Claddagh Irish Pub in Plainfield and Jan. 8 at the Indiana Soccer Academy in Westfield.
