Free tickets for the Philadelphia Eagles' open practice at Franklin Field on August 10 may be reserved on Wednesday beginning at 10 a.m. at PennAthletics.com/Eagles.
Each entry carries a limit of six tickets.
This practice is the last of three the Eagles will be holding in a stadium this summer to accommodate thousands of fans after moving training camp to their NovaCare Complex last year. The other two will be held at Lincoln Financial Field on July 28 and August 3.
Fan activities at every practice will include:
• Player Autographs and Post-Practice Field Access. Every fan entering Lincoln Financial Field and Franklin Field will receive a scratch-off ticket. "Winning" tickets will reveal either an opportunity to receive player autographs or access the field to take pictures, with field access only at Lincoln Financial Field. Fans who are awarded with these tickets will be directed to the designated areas at the conclusion of practice.
• Alumni Autographs. Former Eagles greats will be on hand to sign autographs in the HeadHouse Plaza before practice and also on the main concourse during practice.
• Family Entertainment. Practices will feature music, face-painting artists, appearances from the Eagles Drumline, SWOOP and Eagles Cheerleader entertainment in the HeadHouse Plaza.
July 28 will be Military Day, as members of the military will be selected by the USO to enjoy a special military appreciation reception featuring complimentary food and drink, reserved seating in the SCA Club and special fan experiences.
And at Franklin Field, Eagles alumni will be honored on the field before practice.
All open practices begin at 12:15 p.m.
Unlike last season, the practices at Lincoln Financial Field will not require a ticket for entry.
Parking for the two open practices at Lincoln Financial Field will be free with lots opening at 9 a.m.
