+ The Cincinnati Bengals announced their 2012 training camp schedule on Wednesday, kicking off the schedule on July 27 at 3 PM through August 19. Due to the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the team can only hold one practice per day and it made logistical sense for the Bengals to hold training camp at Paul Brown Stadium for the first time, rather than Georgetown. Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer released a guides fans will want to know planning to attend training camp this year.
All of the practices will be free and open to the public, however tickets are required due to the limited seating capacity on the practice fields. Those tickets are free, but required and will be on "a first-come, first-served basis on the day of each practice, beginning at 10 A.M." So that fans making a late arrival for a certain practice, Reedy writes that the team will make sure people are aware when a certain practice is at capacity.
The Bengals will issue advisories for sessions which have been filled, and though fans arriving at the practice fields without tickets may be able to obtain them starting two hours before practice, this availability will be dependent on daily demand and cannot be guaranteed.
No tickets are required for practices held in Paul Brown Stadium. You can bring food and bottled water and even a "small soft-sided" cooler and at the end of each practice, Joe Reedy writes that "groups of players will be available for autographs for 15 minutes after practice ends. No autographs will be allowed as players enter or leave the practice fields."
