Eagles Training Camp Tickets Sell Out in an Hour
Tickets for the Philadelphia Eagles Training Camp's public practices on Aug. 5 and Aug. 11 sold out quickly.
Philadelphia Eagles training camp has long been a popular draw for families since it’s free, the kids get to see the stars up close and it’s in the warmth of summer instead of the chill (or freeze) of winter.
This year's practices should be even more exciting because it's the first chance most people will get to see the players in uniforms since they won the Super Bowl. As a result, the free tickets that are now required to get into the two public sessions sold out in less than an hour.
Fans don’t have as much access to players as they did when camp was held at Lehigh University. There are now only a couple public practices a year and they are held at Lincoln Financial Field.
This year, you'll need tickets to get in to see the Eagles practice at those two sessions.
There was no charge for the tickets, but you had to get them from Ticketmaster, starting Wednesday (July 18) at 10am.
There were two dates to choose from: Sunday, Aug. 5 at 7pm or Saturday Aug. 11 at 10am, which is Family Day. You could get up to six tickets per household.
In addition to watching the team practice, there will be free activities, including face painting, alumni autographs and green-screen photos. Parking is free too.
All-in-all, it sounds like a pretty nice, low-cost chance to see the world champs in pads. And apparently a lot of people were thinking the same thing.
