Defender Marco Franco became the 10th familar face to return to Indy Eleven for the 2017 season after agreeing to terms on a new contract on Jan. 19, 2017. At the time of the signing, the 25-year-old California native was the second-longest tenured player on the club after only "Eleven Original" Don Smart, having joined the team in the waning weeks of his rookie season in 2014.

After initially fighting for a spot in the starting XI under new head coach Tim Hankinson in 2016, Franco eventually emerged as the starter on the right side of the backline, starting 16 of his 21 appearances in NASL regular and post-season play. The UC-Irvine product started in 8 of Indy's last 9 contests during the club's historic 2016 campaign, including playing all 210 shutout minutes of the Eleven's playoff run to The Championship Final.

2016 Statistics
NASL Regular Season:  19 GP/14 GS  |  1,318 MIN  |  0G / 0A
The Championship:  2 GP/2 GS  |  210 MIN  |  0G / 0A
US Open Cup: 2 GP/2 GS  |  210 MIN  |  0G / 0A
TOTAL:  23 GP/23 GS  |  1,738 MIN  |  0G / 0A

Franco had firmly entrenched himself as the team's first-choice right back during his second season in Indy in 2015, leading the club in games played (27), games started (27) and minutes played (2,377) during regular season action. In fact, Franco has seen the field more than any other member of the "Boys in Blue" over the last two seasons, totaling team bests in games started (41) and minutes played (3.695) in regular season play since the start of 2015.

After joining Indy Eleven on a loan deal from MLS's Chicago Fire late in the team's Inaugural Season on Sept. 13, 2014, Franco made his move to the Circle City permanent with a new deal on Dec. 20 that same year. Franco started and went the full 90 minutes in each of last six contests in 2014, which coincided with a then NASL modern-era record 397-minute shutout streak (9/27 v CAR – 10/26 @ OTT).

Franco made Indy Eleven debut in starting lineup as right back on 9/27/14 v. CAR, a couple of weeks after he joined the squad on 9/12. Franco was selected in 1st Round (13th overall) in 2014 MLS SuperDraft by the Fire, this after he rounded out his standout 4-year career at UC-Irvine by being named Big West 2013 Defender of the Year.
