I've received a few emails recently asking when the 49ers will be announcing dates for open training camp practices. Well, the time has come for some preliminary info. The 49ers announced they'll be offering free tickets to the Monday August 2 practice at the 49ers facilities down in Santa Clara. The practice is at 5pm and gates will open one hour prior to the start of practice.
Once again the 49ers are teaming up with the San Jose Mercury News to make this happen. In order to get your free tickets, you have a couple options. Either purchase tomorrow's (Wednesday July 7) San Jose Mercury News, OR, become friends with the San Jose Mercury News or Contra Costa Times on Facebook. Then, look for the special "Training Camp Code" that will include instructions. You'll need to follow those instructions and go to 49ers.com to print out your free tickets. One printed ticket will admit one person.
Additional open training camp dates and a full practice schedule will be announced at a later date.
This public practice will include interactive games, sponsor booths and player autograph sessions for fans. During the first open practice, members of the Gold Rush Cheerleading team and Sourdough Sam will also be in attendance. San Francisco 49ers tickets, merchandise and concessions will also be on sale.
