The Los Angeles Chargers today announced 13 home practice dates that will be open to the public as part of the team's 2019 training camp schedule. Held once again at Jack Hammett Sports Complex in Costa Mesa, CA, 2019 Chargers Training Camp is open to the public and free of charge.
To attend training camp, fans may either pre-register for their free tickets at chargers.com/camp for the day(s) they plan to attend or register in person at the entrance to Jack Hammett Sports Complex. All bleacher seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Chargers report for camp the week of July 22 and will take the field for the first time at 10:00 a.m. Thursday, July 25. As part of this year's training camp, for the first time, the Chargers will hold an evening practice on Monday, August 12 under the lights at Jack Hammett Sports Complex.
Additionally, the Bolts will once again hold joint practices during training camp – this year welcoming both the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints to Costa Mesa. The Chargers, who will be visiting Rams' camp on Saturday, August 3, will host the Rams on Thursday, August 1 before welcoming the Saints for a pair of joint practices on Thursday, August 15 and Friday, August 16 to conclude public training camp.
New for 2019, the Chargers will offer fans attending training camp a sneak preview of the team's new LA Stadium at Hollywood Park home – be it a virtual reality tour of the stadium, the ability to preview previously unreleased renderings or the opportunity to sample new food offerings scheduled to be available at the new stadium in 2020.
As in years past, training camp at Jack Hammett Sports Complex offers fans of any age the opportunity to watch the Bolts practice in person, cheer for their favorite players within feet of the field and participate in a variety of exciting activities for the entire family. Bleacher seating in 2019 is completely covered and, as previously mentioned, is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The larger standing room footprint on the fence-line in front of the bleachers, expanded interactive fan zones and designated picnic space all return for 2019, as does the massive Chargers merchandise and apparel tent that features a new, unique discounted item daily and all the latest in Bolts' gear.
In addition to rare access to an actual NFL practice, opportunities for fans in attendance include:
- Greet players in the "Hi-Five Zone" prior to practice
- Meet players after practice and receive autographs
