INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts have requested approval for a multi-million dollar expansion of their training complex on the city's northwest side. 

The expansion would include two new practice fields and a building addition. The first practice field would be a full synthetic turf field and a second partial, natural turf field. They also want to construct a 32,000 square-foot addition to their existing facility that would contain a new banquet hall, dining room, kitchen, training rehabilitation area and more.

The Colts said the expansion would be paid by the team but they would not provide a dollar figure for the cost. Work on the expansion would begin after this season. 

According to the Department of Metropolitan Development, the case is scheduled to be heard by the MDC Hearing Examiner on October 26.
