Patrick Talty is the next president of Indiana Sports Corp



Indianapolis, Indiana – According to the organization’s announcement Thursday afternoon, Patrick Talty has been selected as the next president of the Indiana Sports Corp.

He previously served as a chief operating officer and succeeds Ryan Vaughn, who stepped down from the role on July 1.

In October 2019, Talty joined the Indiana Sports Corp as COO.

Since that time, he helped the organization with its role in the 2021 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship and oversaw the bidding efforts to bring several major sporting events to Indianapolis. “Patrick has a strategic vision for the future of Indiana Sports Corp, and I look forward to him being able to share it broadly,” Karin Sarratt, Indiana Sports Corp Board Affairs Chairperson said in written remarks. “Patrick understands the significance of galvanizing relationships inside and outside of the community to help us elevate the organization to meet the needs of our city, state, and the events industry.”

Talty served as general manager of U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, which hosted a Super Bowl and NCAA Men’s Final Four during his tenure, prior to coming to Indianapolis. He is also a former senior vice president of live events for World Wrestling Entertainment.

“I am honored to be elected as the next Indiana Sports Corp President and am excited to lead the nation’s top sports commission,” said Talty. “Our focus is to continue Indy’s rich history of hosting world-class sporting events and creating a significant impact that goes well beyond the competition venue. I’m proud to be back home serving this amazing city and carrying on our mission of advancing and inspiring the community through sports.”

After eight years in the role, in May, Vaughn announced plans to step down as president of the Indiana Sports Corp.
