By Vikings – WCCO | CBS Minnesota

EAGAN, Minn. (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings are starting to get ready for their first training camp in Eagan.

The 2018 Vikings Training Camp, which is sponsored by Verizon, will be in the new Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center starting in late July.

Tuesday morning, representatives from the Vikings and the City of Eagan talked to the media about the training camp schedule, the ticket process for fans, security procedures, parking and traffic control, autograph sessions and food and beverage offerings.

“Our ultimate goal is to provide an environment for our football team – our players, our coaches, our scouts, our staff, to prepare the football players to have a great season. That’s the ultimate goal,” Vikings Chief Operating Officer Kevin Warren said. In conjunction with that, we want to make sure we create an environment from a community asset standpoint, and also for fan experience. This is the first time in 52 years that we’re here. This is new.”

The rookies have to report to training camp on Tuesday, July 24. Their first practice is the next day, with a walkthrough from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. and practice in helmets and shorts from 2:45 to 4:30 p.m.

Veterans report on Friday, July 27, and their first practice is Saturday, July 28.

The Vikings will host a night practice on Saturday, Aug. 4, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. in full pads.

All training camp practices will be open to the public, but will require fans to reserve tickets in advance on the Vikings’ web site.
