The Green Bay Packers’ Ray Nitschke Field will greet players and fans alike on Thursday afternoon, July 26, for the opening of the 67th edition of training camp, presented by Bellin Health. Twenty practices are scheduled through Aug. 30.

Training camp visitors are encouraged to use http://www.packers.com/trainingcamp for an all-encompassing guide to daily practice schedules, activities schedules and other important information.

According to the Greater Green Bay Convention and Visitors Bureau and a 2010 study by AECOM, training camp, along with Packers Family Night, presented by Bellin Health, will attract an estimated 100,000 visitors from across the nation and as many as 20 foreign countries from July 26 through the final open practice, Aug. 30. With an economic impact estimated at $10 million, training camp is a financial boost to many area businesses.

Nitschke Field will open 90 minutes prior to the scheduled practice time and will close 30 minutes after the completion of practice. Concessions will be available for purchase. Carry-ins are permitted, but should take up no more room than the space below a person’s feet. Smoking and alcohol are prohibited.
