As the Packers prepare to kick off another highly-anticipated season, Cheeseheads are eager to get a glimpse of what the team has to offer under a new head coach. Thankfully, the start of training camp is just around the corner. The preseason drama ramps up during the dog days of summer, when rookies and free agents join veterans alike in a fight for a final roster spot.
With the theme of “Back to Football,” Packers training camp will kick off Thurs., July 25. The team’s schedule includes 16 open practices, including two joint practices with the Houston Texans (Aug. 5 and 6) before playing former Badgers star J.J. Watt’s team in the preseason opener at Lambeau Field on Aug. 8.
The Packers’ annual Family Night is set for the night of Friday, Aug. 2. A traditional practice held inside Lambeau Field, the event’s “game-like atmosphere” includes music and a fireworks show to end the night. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., with the team being introduced to the field at 7:30 p.m.
Green Bay’s final two public practices (Aug. 18-19) will lead into a preseason game against the Oakland Raiders in Winnipeg on Aug. 22.
For a franchise steeped in tradition, Packers training camp proves to have a vast history of its own. It dates back to 1946 and the days of founding legend Curly Lambeau. Decades later, during the era of Vince Lombardi, began the time-honored tradition of players riding children’s bikes to and from practice.
Approximately 90,000 people from as many as 20 countries are expected to travel to Green Bay to see training camp practices and Family Night. The estimated total economic impact is nearly $9 million.
Outside of the team’s joint practices with the Houston Texans, all public practices will start at 10:15 a.m. at Ray Nitschke Field.
Note: Practices interrupted by inclement weather may be moved to the Don Hutson Center (out of public viewing).
