Chargers Training Camp will be closed to public

Posted Jul 2, 2009

Practices will be closed to allow completion of drainage system repairs. The team will hold three practices at Qualcomm Stadium free to all fans.

The San Diego Chargers announced today that the team’s 2009 Training Camp will be closed to the public due to on-going repairs being conducted to the underground storm drain system in the area.  

“Training camp is a special time for our fans, and the decision to close camp this year was made very reluctantly,” said Jim Steeg, the Chargers’ Chief Operating Officer.   “We share the city’s goal of completing these critical repairs during the dry summer months so in the end, we had no alternative but to take this step.”

The area’s drainage system failed during heavy rains in February, causing significant flooding of the Chargers’ practice fields and training facility.   Since that time, the Chargers and the city of San Diego have been working closely together as the city has undertaken the necessary repairs.  These repairs are still in progress and will likely continue through the fall.

To allow fans to enjoy practices during the repairs, the Chargers will hold practices on Aug. 5, 8 and 12 at Qualcomm Stadium that will be free and open to the public.

“The unfortunate closing of our training camp means that the entire Chargers’ organization will work to find other ways to provide our fans with the chance to see the practices that they enjoy during training camp,” continued Steeg.

More details on the public practices will be announced at a later date.
