Philadelphia, PA (CBS) — One of the most anticipated Eagles’ seasons in a decade is slightly more than a week away, and the Eagles want their fans to get as many early glimpses of Chip Kelly’s machine before they begin things for real in September.
Open practices to the public will take place on Monday, July 28 (at Lincoln Financial Field), Sunday, August 3 (at Lincoln Financial Field), and Sunday, August 10 (Penn’s Franklin Field). Those practices are scheduled to begin at 12:15 p.m.
The two open practices at Lincoln Financial Field are free of charge—not requiring a ticket for entry. The Franklin Field practice is also free of charge, but will require a ticket for entry which can be obtained by going on PennAthletics.com/Eagles (limit of six tickets per entry) and will be available beginning 10 a.m.Wednesday, July 16. Ticket questions can be answered by calling 215-898-6151.
If rain dates are needed on any of the open practice dates, the Eagles will release an alternative date as soon as a decision is made.
On the open practice dates, the Eagles will distribute a scratch-off ticket to every fan. “Winning” tickets will reveal either an opportunity to receive player autographs or access to the field to take pictures.
On Monday, July 28, the Eagles will host members of the military, selected by the USO, for an appreciation reception. Prior to the Franklin Field open practice, selected Eagles’ alumni will be honored on the field.
Parking for the two open practices at Lincoln Financial Field will be free, with lots opening at 9 a.m. For the Franklin Field practice, the Eagles and the University of Penn are urging fans to take public transportation, since fans will need to use paid lots or parking Kiosks in the surrounding areas.
