Bucs to open training camp July 28, with 11 open practices
The Bucs announced Tuesday morning that their first practice of training camp will be July 28, with 11 morning practices entirely open to the general public at One Buc Place.
The Bucs, who opened a three-day mandatory minicamp for players Tuesday, announced the dates and news that practice and parking will be free to fans. All 11 sessions open to the public are in the morning -- the first 10 run from 8:45 to 10:50 a.m., with the final open practice a joint session with the Cleveland Browns in advance of their preseason game on Aug. 26 at Raymond James Stadium.
Here are the dates for the open practices -- July 30, 31; August 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 13, 15 and 24. The team has also set July 28 as "Kids Day" and July 29 as "Military Appreciation Day" but those dates are not open to the general public.
"We are more than a month away from the start of training camp, yet there is already an unprecedented level of excitement and anticipation among our fans to see our players on the field," Bucs COO Brian Ford said in a statement. "Our goal is to make the experience at training camp bigger and better each year for the best fans in the NFL, and this season is no exception."
