The Dolphins announced they will open training camp at 9 a.m. July 29, and with a new twist: The team is installing a canopy over the stands at its Nova Southeastern facility in Davie, giving fans additional shade and protection from rain.
A new area reserved for children 12 and younger will provide them with special access to get autographs from players after practice. In addition, weekend practices will feature food trucks, inflatables and fun-filled games for fans and families.
The Dolphins also are lowering the fences on the south and west side to create a more open environment. They also plan to hold as many practices as possible on the near field close to fans.
Tickets for the 12 open practices are free, but limited to 2,000 per day. Fans can reserve tickets by registering at Dolphins.com/TrainingCamp.
