The Baltimore Ravens will conduct a free practice for fans at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 6, with the session beginning at 10 a.m. Also free of charge, parking lots for the event open at 8 a.m., and fans may park in Lots A, B, C and G. Cold tailgating will be permitted in all lots. Admittance to the stadium for the general public will be through Gates A and D, which open at 9 a.m. No ticket is necessary to attend the event.
One year ago, when the Ravens had a franchise-record 112,051 fans attend training camp practices, 17,851 people filled M&T Bank Stadium for a practice. The largest crowd ever for a stadium practice marked 36,016 fans during the 1998 training camp, when Ravens fans entered the then-new stadium for the first time.
"We love the energy Ravens fans bring to a practice," head coach John Harbaugh stated. "We look forward to being in front of them on that Saturday."
