The City of Indianapolis has reportedly turned down a request from the National Football League to host the AFC Championship game later in January.
As first reported by the Indianapolis Business Journal, the City has declined to host the NFL’s penultimate game due to scheduling conflicts. City officials added that the Indy convention center already has a packed calendar.
Indianapolis Colts executives were asked by league officials earlier this week about hosting the game on either Jan. 28 or 29. The request came after a Week 17 game between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals was canceled.
