The Patriots nation is counting the weeks before the upcoming NFL season. Four weeks from Thursday, the Patriots will open their training camp. The first practice is scheduled for Thursday, July 25, and it will take place on the practice fields behind Gillette Stadium. The best part comes when you realize that the practice will be open for the public.
We don’t have much information regarding the exact times of the practice, and the team will update them on the training camp portion of the official website. The dates will first be confirmed in the days leading into Patriots training camp.
This will be the 60th annual training camp for the Patriots, including the team’s 17th consecutive camp at Gillette Stadium. The New England Patriots 2019 Training Camp is presented by Optum. The practice sessions are free and open to the public. The additional dates and times for training camp will be updated.
Patriots rookies will arrive for camp on Sunday, July 21, and veterans will come three days later, on Wednesday, July 24.
The number of visitors will be really high. The last time the team came off a Super Bowl win, the club opened the ramps at Gillette Stadium, and more than 15,000 spectators watched the action.
The Patriots won Super Bowl LIII, and they are off to a bigger win. This season they will play without tight end Rob Gronkowski. Gronk decided to retire, and his decision surprised the Patriots nation. Several other players signed deal with different teams, and they won’t play with the Pats this season.
The good news is that the Patriots signed a great group of rookies, and they will open the season with a strong roster. N’Keal Harry is expected to perform at high level, and the same applies to Winovich and the rest of the guys who got the chance to play for New England.
Fans can’t wait to see the new players in action. Tom Brady has already practiced with Harry, and even he even worked out with Josh Gordon. Let’s hope that the suspended receiver will join the team at the beginning of the 2019 season.
