There was an undeniable buzz surrounding the announcement of the Bears’ training camp schedule last year. Between having a new head coach, offensive system, playmakers who were added via free agency and the draft, as well as the hype that was coming down the pipeline with Brian Urlacher’s Hall of Fame induction and a season-opening prime-time showdown against the Packers, there was so much to look forward to around this time last year.
Hope was the thing we were clinging to at this time last year. And you better believe the buzz is back!
The Bears have announced their training camp schedule for 2019, and this is what it looks like:

Players report to the campus of Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais on July 25 and hit the practice field in front of the public two days later on July 27. It will be the first of eight practices at ONU that will be open to the public. Each of those will get started at 8:15 a.m., with camp opening up at 7:30 a.m.
Admission is free, but as has been the case the last few years, you’ll need a ticket to get in. Those tickets will be made available via the Bears’ training camp website.
The Bears will have a “Family Fest” practice at Soldier Field on Saturday, August 3. Tickets aren’t on sale for that just yet, but know in advance that day happens to coincide with the Saturday of Lollapalooza. You might want to put that in your memory bank for planning purposes.
There are 38 days until the Bears will practice before our very eyes, and I can’t wait to see you fine folks out there!
