Under the administration of Mayor Richard Lugar and then continuing with successor, William Hudnut, the City of Indianapolis was making a serious effort to reinvent itself into a "Great American City." From the early 1970s through the 1980s, Indianapolis businessman and civic leader Robert V. Welch was instrumental in leading the way to build consensus among NFL hierarchy and Indianapolis community leaders that Indianapolis could support an NFL franchise.[10][11] As a result of this and many other initiatives, in 1979, Indianapolis community leaders created the Indiana Sports Corporation in order to attract major sports events to central Indiana. With respect to the NFL, Welch spent more than a decade to position Indianapolis as the NFL's leading choice for franchise expansion with Welch as the local owner and as such, in 1980, Hudnut appointed a committee to study the feasibility of building a new stadium that could serve primarily as a boon to the city's convention business and, secondarily, as a lure for an NFL team.[12]
