About Us


#ColonelsComeBack is a grassroots effort organized to promote the return of the Kentucky Colonels to professional basketball. We seek to educate and inspire. A Colonels comeback is good for Louisville, Kentucky, and Southern Indiana. We are passionate about basketball in this area, and we deserve to have our own team in the NBA.

Our Team

Home to some of the most passionate fans in the league, the Kentucky Colonels have more wins than any other team in the ABA and have a winning record against NBA teams in interleague play. In 1975, they won an ABA Championship. Despite their success, the Colonels were not asked to join the NBA unlike some of their rivals in the ABA--the Nets, the Spurs, the Nuggets, and of course, the Pacers. We seek to right this injustice.

Our Vision

We are promoting the team through meetings, press, social media, and other avenues of advocacy. Our main activity is on Twitter, so be sure to follow us. (Link below.) If you're passionate about this movement, we want your support and we want to hear from you!
