In an unprecedented move by the Oakland Raiders, they are inviting fans to attend training camp. They have invited fans to training camp before but never like this. Here's how it will work:
Beginning Friday, July 27 at 10:00 a.m., fans wishing to attend a practice in Napa can visit any Raider Image location and receive two tickets to one practice, while supplies last. Tickets will be available for practices on Friday, August 3, Saturday, August 4 and Sunday, August 5. The tickets are free of charge and no purchase is necessary.
Fans wishing to attend a practice in Napa must have a ticket. There will be no entry without a ticket to the applicable practice.
Limited parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis on the grounds of Redwood Middle School (enter on Oxford Street), and at the Napa Valley Marriott, at the south end of the hotel behind the spa.
Last season it was season ticket holders who purchased their tickets by a certain date. Back in the Gruden years, he held a single day in which fans could attend a practice which is very much like the Raider Nation Celebration as we now know it.
As we have said many times before, this is a new era for the Raiders. For those who have always wanted to see the Raiders in training camp, this is a fantastic opportunity and one they have never had before.
