All practices are free and offer fans the opportunity to obtain player autographs after practice.

This is the seventh year Bengals Training Camp will take place in Cincinnati. Training Camp opens two weeks before the Bengals’ first preseason game against the Chicago Bears on Thursday, Aug. 9. The Bengals wrap up the preseason at home against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Aug. 30. The season officially kicks off on the road against the Colts on Sunday, Sept. 9, followed by the Bengals home opener against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, Sept. 13.

The Family Day practice on Saturday, Aug. 4 takes place inside Paul Brown Stadium and features child-friendly activities, including inflatables, face painting, balloon artists, pictures with team mascot Who Dey and an NFL Play 60 Activity Zone. This intrasquad scrimmage serves as a warmup for the team’s first preseason game. 

Other than Family Day, the Bengals practice on the grass fields just west of Paul Brown Stadium. The entrance is located on the corner of Central Avenue and Pete Rose Way. The grass fields have bleacher seating for 1250 fans right next to the fields, plus additional standing room along the sidelines.

Fans can bring small soft-sided coolers, unopened bottles of water and food into all practices. Concessions and Bengals merchandise will be available to purchase, with a larger selection of items available nearby at the Bengals Pro Shop.

Fifth Third Bank will make Training Camp a Fifth Third better® for the first 53 fans who show a Fifth Third Bank Bengals Debit Card upon entry to the grass fields each session. Those first 53 fans will be upgraded to the Fifth Third Reserved Bleacher Seats and take home a seat cushion.
