Finally, the Chicago Bears have announced their training camp schedule.
Training Camp 2021 begins on July 27 and will feature 14 practices in which fans can be in attendance from July 29 until August 25. In order to get into Halas Hall to watch practice, a ticker will be required for entry. The good news is that it’s free. That means it will cost nothing, which leads me to breathe a sigh of relief. But the bad news is that training camp practices will be limited to 1,000 tickets each day. In other words, may the Force be with you if you’re on the prowl for tickets.
Want to go to training camp practice? That makes two of us. Registration for tickets begins at noon on Thursday (July 8th), is open for a week, and ends on July 15th.
Things will be much different at Halas Hall than they were in Bourbonnais. For instance, fan interaction sure won’t look the same. Citing COVID precautions, there won’t be autographs at camp. Additionally, fans will be unable to park at Halas Hall. Instead, a shuttle will be available at nearby Hawthorn Mall. The Bears might call this an intimate experience because of the setting. But however they refer to it, it makes me miss the open spaces of Olivet Nazarene University. Nevertheless, I’m ready to watch Justin Fields and friends start their prep work for the 2021 campaign.
