Manning Fever

Manning Fever


Former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning is coming back to town to play against the team he led for 14 seasons.

Manning, now quarterback for the Denver Broncos, brought more than excitement to Colts fans  —  he brought tons of extra visitors to Indianapolis.

And with them, lots of extra cash spent in restaurants, bars, and hotels.

Chris Gahl, of Visit Indy, calls it the “Peyton Effect.”  Downtown hotels which are a bit of half-full during a normal week-end are now virtually all taken because Number 18 is coming back to play the Colts.
