The Minnesota Vikings have released the official dates and times for the team’s very first training camp at the new TCO Performance Center.

For the first time since 1965, the Minnesota Vikings will not be holding their training camp this summer at Minnesota State University in Mankato, Minnesota. Instead, the Vikings’ training camp will be taking place at the team’s brand new TCO Performance Center in Eagan, Minnesota.

On Tuesday, Minnesota released the official practice schedule for this year’s camp.

Vikings rookies will report to training camp on Tuesday, July 24 while the rest of Minnesota’s players will show up to the TCO Performance Center three days later on Friday, July 27. The first full team practice will take place on Saturday, July 28.

Minnesota will have one night practice this summer and that will take place from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. (central time) on Saturday, August 4. The Vikings’ final two days of their 2018 training camp (August 15 and 16) will consist of joint practices with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Some of the guidelines for fans who would like to attend Minnesota’s camp practices this year are a bit interesting.

Only 5,000 fans will be allowed each day and each fan can attend no more than two days of practice this year in order to give every Vikings fan a fair chance to see the team at camp.

4,000 free tickets will be available for each day of practice and 1,000 reserved tickets will also be available for a fee of $20. The cost of the reserved seats will bump up to $25 for the two days of camp Minnesota will have with the Jaguars.

Vikings season ticket holders will have the first chance to purchase the reserved tickets (no more than four per person) at 9 a.m. on Thursday, June 21. Minnesota fans who are not season ticket holders will have their first opportunity to buy reserved seats at 9 a.m. on Monday, June 25.
