The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Friday that the team's first training camp practice will be held on July 27 at 3 P.M at Paul Brown Stadium. However as Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer points out, the Macy's Music Festival will take place at Paul Brown Stadium during the same weekend, starting Friday July 27 and ending the following night. Therefore practice is likely to occur on the practice field.

The remaining schedule is yet to be determined/announced.

This will be the first training camp in 15 years that's not being held at Georgetown University due to the Collective Bargaining Agreement preventing more than one practice per day. Bengals president Mike Brown released a statement in late January saying that this was "nothing the Bengals or Georgetown College wanted to see happen, but it is the hand we are dealt, so we both have to adjust to it. I will miss going away for training camp very much, and I will especially miss our friends in Georgetown, Kentucky." Brown continued:

"And when you practice once a day, is it necessary to go away to training camp with dorms and all the stuff that you have?" Brown asked. "The purpose of the dorms is to give the players a chance to rest when you're practicing twice a day ... What you are seeing across the league is a tendency by teams to stay at their own location.

"The new agreement between the NFL and its players really impacts training camp by reducing practices."

According to the Cincinnati Bengals twitter account, the cost to watch training camp practices will be "similar" to what they were at Georgetown.

As for the performances during the Macy's Music Festival, here are the scheduled performers (and I don't know a single one).
