San Francisco 49ers Training Camp Information
When is training camp?
Training camp typically begins at the end of July. The dates for the "open to the public" sessions are announced anywhere between early to mid July. In the past, there have typically been about 10 open sessions to the public. However, since 2014, there have been fewer open practices with as little as three being held at Levi's Stadium.
How do I get tickets?
Tickets typically become available around mid July on a first come, first serve basis. Tickets to the practices are typically free and you just need to register for them online. They announce the signup URL in July as well. Often, the San Francisco 49ers pair up with the San Jose Mercury News to give out tickets to the first open training camp date. Season ticket holders also typically get first chance to obtain tickets.
Where is training camp?
All team training camp sessions typically take place at the team's headquarters. It is located at the following address:
4949 Marie P. DeBartolo Way
Santa Clara, CA 95054
However, training camp sessions that are open to the public are held at the team's stadium, which is right next door at the following address:
4900 Marie P. DeBartolo Way
Santa Clara, CA 95054
What should I expect?
It can get hot at Levi's Stadium during this time of the year. Bring plenty of water. The team also provides games for kids, contest stands, a team store, and more. You can also visit the team museum while you are there.
What about food?
Food and drinks are available for sale to fans. The food consists of what you might expect at such an event. Pizza, hot dogs, sodas, etc can be purchased. However, if you want to save a little money, there are a number of fast food establishments a short drive away so you may either want to pick something up before or after your visit. In past years, the 49ers have allowed fans to bring in their own food and drinks.
What about parking?
Plenty of parking is available next to the stadium and team headquarters.
Can I get player autographs?
After each practice, some players do take the time to sign some autographs for fans. Unless you want to purchase some products at the team store available there, bring your own mini helmets, jerseys, etc. Mini helmets at the store there cost approximately $25, so if you can find them cheaper elsewhere, you are likely better off bringing your own.
