The first practice sessions that will be open to the public will come on Saturday, 30 July, or “Back Together Saturday.” On that day, fans will be able to watch both the morning walk-through and the afternoon practice, and there will also be autograph sessions, giveaways, and more.
In all, the team will have nine padded practice sessions and five unpadded practice sessions open to the public. Four of the five unpadded sessions will be free for everyone to attend, while eight of the nine padded practice sessions will have fees attached. We’ll have a full breakdown of those fees here in a little bit.
The team will also be hosting two joint practice sessions with the San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday and Thursday, 17 and 18 August, leading up to the teams meeting in the second preseason game on Saturday, 20 August. The annual night practice at the Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center will be held on Monday, 8 August.
