Ravens want to bring more fans into training camp

Fans were upset when the Ravens left Westminster, Md. to hold training camp on site at the team's facility in Owings Mills.

And rightfully so. Training camp in Westminster had become tradition. The Colts used to practice in the preseason in Westminster, too. But in 2011, following the end of the NFL lockout, the Ravens set up shop at the team's facility. They liked it so much for organizational purposes that they decided not to leave.

As a result, only a handful of fans via a lottery can attend training camp practices.

The Ravens want to change that.

Speaking on a conference call with PSL owners on Wednesday, Bisciotti said the Ravens are in the process of buy land by the facility so they can accommodate more fans into the team's facility during training camp.

This goes with what team president Dick Cass previously told reporters at the NFL owners meetings. This would be a great move for the Ravens to make up lost time with those that have since been unable to attend camp over the previous four years.
