Commanders Training Camp will also have a new look this season with a 2,000-seat bleacher viewing area constructed on the practice fields to accommodate fans from across the region. The team is encouraging fans to bring blankets and lawn chairs to set up adjacent to the practice fields as in years past.
Some storylines fans will have their eyes on include Sam Howell’s quest for the starting quarterback job. He seems to be the choice but Jacoby Brissett will be there to give him a run for his money. Additionally, the progress of Chase Young, fans first glimpse at Emmanuel Forbes, and whether or not the new ownership group led by Josh Harris will be onhand should also be hot topics.
Special events at Ashburn include the NFL’s annual “Back Together Saturday” training camp celebration on Saturday, July 29 for all 32 teams, the Commanders annual “Military Appreciation Day,” and “Kids Day.”
On “Back Together Saturday” there will be a series of activations suitable for families, including a Commanders Kids Zone, Washington Legends meet and greets, a live DJ, and performances by Command Force and the Marching Band Drumline.
Washington Salute, the Official Military Appreciation Club of the Washington Commanders, will host a few hundred local military members for a practice experience with players and coaches and a special recognition for service to our nation on Tuesday, August 8.
The Washington Commanders Charitable Foundation will host approximately 300 kids from DC, Maryland, and Virginia Public Schools as part of Kids Day, including complimentary lunch, a special giveaway, and activities provided by NFL Play60 and Commanders Read.
Additionally, this summer, the Commanders will head to Baltimore on August 15 and August 16 for two days of joint practices with the Baltimore Ravens.
Let the games begin…football is back!
