(ALLEN PARK, MI) – The Detroit Lions Training Camp practice session on today at 9:15 am, at the team’s headquarters and training facility in Allen Park, is the second of eight practices open to the general public.
Gates will open 30 minutes before the start of practice and access is on a first-come, first-served basis. Fans are encouraged to visit Detroitlions.com for daily practice information, including weather updates, practice times and any changes to the team’s training camp schedule.
Practice sessions at Allen Park are open for outdoor practices only and are subject to change.
In the case of inclement weather, practices will be moved indoors and therefore closed to the public. Rain dates are available as necessary and will be announced for selected sessions that close due to inclement weather. Information on practice access will also be available through the team’s Training Camp Hotline at 313.262.2882.
Head coach Jim Schwartz promises fans will enjoy watching the open practices.
“A lot of that comes from depth. There’s competition for starting sports,” Schwartz said “There’s also competition for playing time. There’s going to be competition to make the 53 (roster). I think that for sure, particularly from top to bottom this is the most competitive we’ve had as far as roster in camp.”
