After a one-year hiatus, the Ravens will have fans attend their annual training camp in Owings Mills, Maryland. This time, there are 15(!) free practices for fans to attend. The reason for not allowing fans last year was heavy construction and parking renovations at the Under Armour Performance Center.
“Beginning Monday, June 18 at 11 a.m., fans can visit www.BaltimoreRavens.com/TrainingCamp or the Ravens’ Mobile App to claim a parking pass for one of the 15 Owings Mills practices.
The online reservation is on a first-come, first-served basis, allowing fans to secure a parking pass that will admit one car’s worth of people to the specific practice requested. (No longer is the team using a lottery system to grant fan admittance, however, there is a limited amount of parking passes available for each day.)”
In my two years at camp, I certainly find it enjoyable when team drills begin and the roar of a crowd erupts after somebody breaks off a big play on offense or defense. Nothing like watching Mike Wallace tip a pass to himself over Jimmy Smith and the sidelines are roaring.
“Training camp is back, and we’re excited to have Ravens fans return to practice,” team president Dick Cass stated. “Each year, we’ve made a commitment to enhance training camp and provide a first-rate experience for fans in Owings Mills. We look forward to welcoming them back in bigger numbers this summer.”
Do note the Ravens first full-team practice is a week earlier due to the addition of another preseason game, the annual Hall of Fame game.
More exciting news as the Ravens also host the Los Angeles Rams for two open practices (Aug. 6-7), which fans can sign up to attend at the Under Armour Performance Center.
Fireworks night will be held at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday, July 21 at 6:00 PM ET. After practice and a fireworks/laser show, there will be an autograph session for children.
