Colts announce training camp details and how fans can attend
The Indianapolis Colts have released the details for their training camp and what fans need to do to attend the open practices.
Once NFL teams begin training camp, it means the return of the NFL season is near. Fans and the media get excited seeing the players return to daily action, but for the players, it’s the start of a long and grueling experience. For many of the players that will report to camp, it’s about battling to make the final game-day roster.
The Indianapolis Colts will return to start training camp on July 27 at Grand Park Sports Campus in Westfield, Indiana. With plenty of new additions and high expectations entering next season, this will be the start of what many are hoping is a magical year for Indianapolis.
Can fans attend Colts training camp?
From July 27 until August 25, the team will hold 16 training camp practices that will be open to the public and completely free. The team also announced that there will be themed days, as well as Colts City, “a family-friendly activity zone” with “interactive experiences for all ages!”
Although the practices are free to attend, tickets/passes have to be claimed on the Colts website. The website also has all the details regarding the schedule, parking, themes, and any other questions that may arise.
Do the Colts have any joint practices?
In addition to the fans, Indianapolis will also be inviting the Detroit Lions to training camp for a couple of joint practices before the two teams face off in a preseason game. These practices will take place on August 17 and 18 and both will be free and open to the public.
While training camp is for the team to get prepared for the season, it will also be an opportunity for fans to come and get closer with the team and the rest of Colts Nation. There will be plenty of opportunities to participate in various activities and also have personal encounters with players and coaches.
