Tennessee Titans Training Camp Opens July 26

2018 Tennessee Titans Training Camp

2018 Tennessee Titans Training Camp

The Tennessee Titans will hold their first practice of 2018 training camp on Thursday, July 26. It will mark the first of the team's 15 total training camp practices that will be free and open to the general public.

Titans quarterbacks, rookies and injured players reported to camp on July 22, and veterans will join them on July 25, with the first practice scheduled for the following morning at 9:50 a.m.

The 15 open camp practices are the most scheduled by the team since 2011, when 17 dates were open.

All but two of the open practices will take place at Saint Thomas Sports Park, the team's home training facility located at 460 Great Circle Road in MetroCenter, Nashville. The exceptions are Pinnacle Friday Night Lights on Aug. 3 at Centennial High School in Franklin, Tenn., and the Aug. 4 intra-squad scrimmage at Nissan Stadium.

From Aug. 15-16, the Titans will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a pair of joint practices leading up to their preseason matchup on Aug. 18. Normal procedures and accommodations, including free admission, will apply.

Training camp is the only time of the year in which practices are open to the general public. All sessions are subject to change and will be closed to the public upon severe weather.

Fan Experience at Training Camp

Spectators who attended training camp in 2017 noticed significant changes and upgrades in the club's camp operations, implemented for the safety and comfort of everyone in attendance. Most of those same modifications will be in place for 2018.

Bleachers surround the practice field to provide ample seating and a limited amount of shade. A cold, filtered water station and two misting areas to help keep fans cool are available free of charge.

As always, select players will sign autographs after every practice that is open to the general public. The sessions will take place in the south, middle end zone area. Generally, around 15 players per day participate in the autograph session.

A limited number of free parking spaces are available across the street from Saint Thomas Sports Park at 445 Great Circle Road. Additionally, free parking is available at Nashville Metro Parks and Recreation's Ted Rhodes Multipurpose Fields (720 Mainstream Drive), where courtesy shuttles run continuously starting one hour before practice until one hour after practice concludes.

Security measures will be in place for all fans attending Titans training camp. To enter the grounds, fans must pass through a metal detector, and the same clear bag policy used at Nissan Stadium applies at training camp. Other items not allowed include food and beverage, tobacco products, coolers, liquids, umbrellas, chairs and strollers. Empty water bottles are allowed and can be filled at the free water station.
