Can't wait? Check out Lions training camp

If you can’t wait until the preseason to see the new-look Lions, you can watch them at selected training camp sessions at the practice facility at Allen Park. Seating at the practice facility is limited to 700 so it’s first-come, first get in the gate.

Both are free.

“We are thrilled to welcome our fans back to training camp this year,” Lions president Tom Lewand said. “Our fans provide outstanding support throughout the year, and training camp is another excellent opportunity for them to come out and watch this team gear up for a new season. As excited as they are to see us, we share that same enthusiasm as they generate a great atmosphere throughout camp.”

At Ford Field the 45-minute autograph session starts at 3 p.m., with practice at 4 p.m.

Practice dates and times (subject to change and weather conditions) for general public at the Allen Park facility are:

-- Wednesday, August 4 (9 a.m. and 3:15 p.m.) -- Thursday, August 5 (9 a.m.) -- Friday, August 6 (9 a.m. and 3:15 p.m.) -- Sunday, August, 8 (9 a.m. and 3:15 p.m.) -- Monday, August 9 (9 a.m.) -- Tuesday, August 10 (9 a.m. and 3:15 p.m.) -- Wednesday August 11 (9 a.m.) -- Thursday, August 12 (9 a.m. and 3:15 p.m.) -- Monday, August 16 (3:15 p.m.) -- Tuesday, August 17 (9 a.m. and 3:15 p.m.) -- Wednesday, August 18 (9 a.m.) -- Thursday, August 19 (9 a.m. and 3:15 p.m.)
