Ravens Training Camp Open to the Public

The Baltimore Ravens begin three days of mandatory minicamp today as part of the next phase in the offseason process. As of now, only team officials and media have been limited to watching practices but that is set to change in just over a month.

Yesterday, the Ravens announced that training camp will be open to the public this year. Per the team’s website, there will be 15 practices open to the public that will accommodate around 2,000 fans each day.

While attendance will be limited, fans will have an opportunity to reserve their spot to attend a day of training camp. Training camp was closed to the public the last offseason due to construction at the team facilities. It’s a time where fans, particularly families and young ones get the opportunity to watch their favorite players up close and personal. It’s anything unlike a game setting and for many, it’s fueled their love and passion for the Ravens over the years.

After hosting training camp at McDaniel College since 1996, the Ravens made the move to their state-of-the-art facilities in Owings Mills during the 2011 lockout to save time and money in the process. While many hope they eventually return back to their original setting, this provides fans the chance to watch a new and improved team heading into the 2018 season. 

The first day of training camp will be held on July 19th and the last day open to the public will occur on August 19th.
