Training Camp Travel: Watch the Arizona Cardinals Get Set in the Desert

August 14, 2014 at 9:14 AM | by | ()

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

The Arizona Cardinals were right on the doorstep of the NFL playoffs last year, but they failed to make the postseason for the fourth season in a row. That’s okay in our minds, because it’s a brand new year with brand new possibilities. The team has been hard at work for the last few weeks, and everyone from Larry Fitzgerald to Carson Palmer is ready for 2014.

· When's Camp:
The team is one of the few football teams that continues to have training camp practices open to the public, as it seems like many of the teams have started to close things down. Things started up back on July 26, as the team does their warm-ups in the same place as they hold their home games—University of Phoenix Stadium. In total there will be 18 practices open to the public, and there are options today, next Monday, and a few more after that. The full schedule is right here if you want to check things out.

· What's it Cost:
First and foremost both admission and parking to all the training camp events are totally free to one and all. Just note that you’ll need to park the family car on the east side of the stadium near the green and grey entries—with the one off 91st Avenue being most preferable. The stadium opens up—Budweiser Gate 3 is the one to use—beginning at 1:30pm, but it sounds like you can also access the stadium through the team store as well. Seating options are wide open in and around the lower level, but we’d imagine getting there early improves your chances for scoring a sweet seat.

· What Else:
Tickets for the regular season are available at training camp for those looking to continue the game day experience in person rather than on the couch. Concessions will be available as well each and every day, and there’s even an interactive kids zone for the little ones. Autographs too are available for both kids and adults, but the team reminds you to be considerate—that means no pushing and shoving.
