Eagles Announce Training Camp Dates
The following is a release from the Philadelphia Eagles:
The Philadelphia Eagles announced their training camp schedule today, which begins with all players reporting to the NovaCare Complex on Friday, July 25. This year’s training camp features three open practices, including one on Sunday, August 10 at historic Franklin Field, the home of the Eagles from 1958-70.
The two open practices at Lincoln Financial Field are set for Monday, July 28 and Sunday, August 3. All open practices are free of charge, but unlike last year, the two practices at Lincoln Financial Field will not require a ticket for entry. Like last year, the majority of the practices will be conducted at the NovaCare Complex and will be open to a limited number of invited guests, including season ticket members selected from every section of the stadium.
Tickets for the open practice at Franklin Field will be available beginning on Wednesday, July 16 at 10 am by logging onto PennAthletics.com/Eagles. There will be a limit of six (6) tickets per order. Ticketing questions can be answered by calling 215-898-6151 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
After hosting the New England Patriots at the NovaCare Complex in 2013, the Eagles will visit Foxboro for three days of joint practices with the Patriots leading up to their 2nd preseason game at Gillette Stadium on Friday, August 15.
Start times for the open practices are slated for 12:15 pm, while the practice sessions at the NovaCare Complex are scheduled to begin at 11:45 am. These times, however, are subject to change.
“We are looking forward to another summer of Eagles football in Philadelphia,” said Eagles President Don Smolenski. “Although the total number of open practices has been reduced from last year due to events in and around our stadium as well as the joint practice sessions in Foxboro, we remain committed to providing our fans a fun atmosphere as they get an up-close look at our team, including what we think will be a special day at Franklin Field.”
“We are excited to have the Eagles return to Franklin Field,” said Penn’s Director of Athletics, Steve Bilsky. “The Eagles enjoyed so many memorable moments here from 1958-70, and we think August 10 will be a great day for the franchise and the fans to revisit this historic venue. Penn is honored to welcome head coach Chip Kelly, his staff, and the Eagles players back to our campus, and we think it will be a fantastic day for everyone involved.”
