“It’s football time in Tennessee!”
Legendary announcer John Ward used to say those words before kickoff of every Tennessee Volunteers game. He said it so much, it became part of every Tennessean’s lexicon! It’s no different this summer as the 2016 Tennessee Titans prepare to kickoff Training Camp in Nashville!
Camp officially opens Saturday, July 30th at Saint Thomas Sports Park! Ten practices will be open for the fans! Admission and parking are free! The dates and times are below:
|› Sat., July 30||2:40 – 4:30 pm|
|› Sun., July 31||2:40 – 4:30 pm|
|› Mon., Aug. 1||8:55 – 11:00 am|
|› Tues., Aug. 2||8:55 – 11:00 am|
|› Thurs., Aug. 4||8:55 – 11:00 am|
|› Fri., Aug. 5||8:55 – 11:00 am|
|› Sat., Aug. 6||6:00 – 8:00 pm|
|› Mon., Aug. 8||6:55 – 9:00 pm|
|› Tues., Aug. 9||3:10 – 5:10 pm|
|› Mon., Aug. 15||6:55 – 9:00 pm|
The practice scheduled for August 6th will take place at Nissan Stadium, Home of the Titans, at 6pm.
Meanwhile, NFL rules regarding clear bags will be in effect. Also, if weather is an issue, fans will be required to leave the practice fields and return to their vehicles while the severe weather passes. If there is prolonged bouts of severe weather, practice will be moved to the indoor facility. All indoor practices are closed to fans.
Also, every player on the Titans roster will sign autographs for free after practice at least once during training camp. Usually, around 10 players are assigned to the autograph schedule each day and the players sign autographs along the sideline of the field nearest to the fan entrance. Additional players may also sign autographs at their choosing. From my past experiences, get to Saint Thomas Sports Park early and stake out a great spot!
Fans attending training camp can park directly across the street from Saint Thomas Sports Park in the CVS/Caremark corporate offices at 445 Great Circle Road!
Once again, “It’s Football Time in Tennessee!”
