When the Detroit Lions first announced their 2019 training camp schedule, the first practice was set to only be available to media and season-ticket holders. On Thursday, the Lions announced a change. That practice will now be completely open to the public:

You need not RSVP. You need not purchase a ticket. Simply show up to Allen Park—ideally early enough to guarantee a spot (gates open at 8:30 a.m. ET)—and enjoy the show!

And for those season-ticket holders that already RSVP’d for the opening day of camp, the Lions haven’t forgotten about you. There will be reserved seating available for season-ticket holders available until 10 a.m. ET.

If you want more information on how to visit training camp, the Lions website has a list of frequently asked questions that should have you covered.
