The day is upon us, Raider Nation – only 3 days away. And this year, more fans will be allowed to attend training camp in Napa Valley! The following is a direct statement from the Raiders official website of how you can get there:
Each summer since establishing Training Camp in Napa in 1996, the Raiders have invited youth groups, military groups, community groups, booster clubs, sponsors, suite holders, and broadcast partners to enjoy watching the team practice and prepare for the football season.
This year, even more fans will be able to visit Training Camp to get an up-close look at the Silver and Black, as the team prepares for an exciting 2012 NFL season.
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.
