Meet Zeke

Meet Indy Eleven's new four-legged friend, presented by Church Brothers Collision Repair!


Meet Indy Eleven's Mascot, Zeke!

A new and friendly face was seen wondering across the Hoosier State just as Indy Eleven took to the field for its Inaugural Season in 2014  ... Zeke, the loveable Eleven mascot!

Zeke is an English mastiff, a protective-yet-gentle dog which was the same breed that the 11th Regiment leader Lew Wallace bestowed as a gift to the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire in 1880’s. Zeke was unveiled on April 10, 2014, when Indy Eleven and the Lew Wallace Study and Museum joined together to introduce the team's furry friend at an event hosted on Wallace's birthday in his hometown of Crawfordsville.

On gamedays, Zeke proudly dons the stylish Indy Eleven checkered home jersey, but at other events you might see him wearing the distinctive Zouave uniform that was a hallmark of the specially-trained 11th Regiment that the club is named after.

Anywhere Indy Eleven goes, Zeke is sure to follow.  Don’t be afraid to go up and say hello ... Zeke's always happy to give fans young and old a friendly hug and a spirited high-five!

Indy Eleven is proud to have Church Brothers Collision Repair as the presenting partner of Zeke's community appearances since 2015. Just as Church Brothers helps get you moving after an accident, they'll too help Zeke move across the Hoosier State to meet fans of the "Boys in Blue" during the team's second season!
