Vikings Announce Partial Training Camp Schedule

As a public service on behalf of those folks who plan to visit Vikings training camp this year, here is a partial camp schedule via the official team site. The Vikings want you to know that this will be their 49th year holding camp in Mankato. How the time flies.

Reporting day: Thursday, July 24

First practice: Friday, July 25

Evening practice at Blakeslee Stadium followed by team introductions and fireworks: Saturday, August 2

Camp breaks: Friday, August 15

The first preseason game of course will be held at TCF Bank Stadium Friday, August 8. The second home preseason game is scheduled for Saturday, August 16.

More important dates will be announced by the Vikings as we progress.

If that July 24 camp opening date seems a long way off…well, it is. But remember, in the meantime, there are still some OTA sessions and a mandatory minicamp to look forward to.

OTAs are set for June 4-6 and June 10-13. Mandatory minicamp is set for June 18-20.

It’s that month between minicamp and real camp that is not a lot of fun. Might want to load up on TV shows to binge watch during that time. I recommend Fargo.
