Are you ready for some football? Public access to the Arizona Cardinals training camp in Glendale started on July 22. The Cardinals training camp, held in the afternoons at their Glendale stadium, allows fans a chance to get up close with the players as they get ready for the 2017 season.
Here are a few things you need to know if you plan to attend training camp.
The Cardinal organization has 18 practice sessions that are open to the public. The ‘Red and White’ practice will be held on July 29. The open practice sessions are 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Parking is available on the east side of the stadium and will open at 12:30 p.m. to the public on practice days. They recommend fans enter from 91st Avenue. In addition, on the July 29th open Saturday practice, parking lots on the west side of the stadium will also be open.
