The Denver Broncos have announced a handful of training camp practices free and open to the public in 2022. When can fans go see the team?

With new quarterback Russell Wilson under center, Denver Broncos training camp in 2022 could be the most well-attended since Peyton Manning was with the team in 2015.

Fans will be understandably giddy to get out and see the team in person this summer as Wilson takes the field along with a championship-caliber roster, new coaching staff, and a completely different vibe with the team in general now that there’s a new owner in place.

So when can Denver Broncos fans attend training camp in 2022?

Let’s take a look at the important dates to know.

Wednesday, 7/27: 10:00-11:45 AM (all times are Mountain Time)
Thursday, 7/28: 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Saturday, 7/30: 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Sunday, 7/31: OFF, no practice
Monday, 8/1: 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Tuesday, 8/2: 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Wednesday, 8/3: 10:00-11:30 AM
Thursday, 8/4: 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Friday, 8/5: 10:00-11:30 AM
Saturday, 8/6: 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Sunday, 8/7: OFF, no practice

Tuesday, 8/9: 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Wednesday, 8/10: 10:00-11:30 AM
Thursday, 8/11: 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM (intrasquad practice with Dallas Cowboys)

Altogether, there are 14 practices available to the public from late July to almost mid-August, including a couple of very cool and important things to note.

1. Player autographs are back

For the first time in a while, Denver Broncos players will be available after practices to sign autographs.

In each of the practice sessions open to the public, specific position groups will be available to sign near the guest seating area after practice has concluded.

2. Make sure you bring the right kind of bag

You cannot bring a standard backpack or purse to practice. You have to bring clear, smaller bags to get access into the facility.

Specifically: Each fan may carry one bag that is clear plastic, vinyl or PVC, no larger than 12” x 6” x 12” or a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc or similar). That’s from the Denver Broncos directly.

Don’t get stuck at the gate having to return to your vehicle just because you brought the wrong kind of bag.

3. The team store is open, other essentials

One of the best ways to escape the heat for a bit is the team store on-site at the practice facility. The store is typically open for the duration of the practices at the very least.

There are also beverages available for purchase at the facility, sunscreen dispensers around the complex, and food trucks available outside of the Pat Bowlen Fieldhouse.

4. You’re not going to sit in stadium seats

If you are new to attending training camp, do not expect to be sitting in stadium-style seats. You will sit on a grassy hill to observe practice.

There are also areas to stand above the seating area but get to practice a little early if you want to be able to get close to the field.

My recommendation? Stand on the concourse above the fan seating for the best possible view, but sit close to the field if your goal is to get autographs after practice.

5. For the first time in (for)ever?

I don’t know that I can recall a time where a joint practice was held in Denver and also was open to the public.

Maybe I just missed out.

At any rate, it’s very cool that one of the joint practices with the Dallas Cowboys is open to the public this year.

Those kinds of practices just bring out a different energy in the players and by that point of training camp, they are sick of going against each other and are ready to hit someone else.

Having the Cowboys in town will be cool anyway, but that will be an awesome practice session to attend.

Overall, it doesn’t get much better than this for Denver Broncos fans attending training camp.

The energy will be completely different with Russell Wilson under center and championship aspirations reborn.

The joint practice with the Dallas Cowboys is a rarity and fans will have the opportunity to get autographs once again.

It’s tough to beat this free-of-charge experience if you’re a fan of the team. Training camp isn’t as exciting as a game, but it’s a great experience for fans of all ages.
