The Minnesota Vikings on Thursday announced plans to have 2021 training camp open to fans at TCO Performance Center in Eagan.

The Vikings will host a total of 14 practices at their Eagan facility open to the public, 10 that will be free for up to 4,000 fans and four other "premier practices" that will cost $10 per ticket.

The first Vikings training camp practice open to the public will be Wednesday, July 28. The Vikings will also host joint practices with the Denver Broncos Aug. 11-12, leading up to the two teams playing in a preseason game on Saturday, Aug. 14 at U.S. Bank Stadium.

"Very fortunate to hear that news. I actually didn’t know that officially, but that’s good to hear. Obviously our fan base makes a major difference in wins and losses for us. Their energy for our team really carries us throughout, so we’re really blessed to have them back. It’s going to make a difference for us," Vikings offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak said Thursday.

Camp will be open daily from noon to 5:30 p.m. with daily practices held from approximately 2-4:30 p.m. Here are the key dates, including the four premier practices.

  • Wednesday, July 28 – First Full-Team Ramp Up Practice
  • Saturday, July 31 – Night Practice in TCO Stadium
  • Monday, August 2 – First Padded Practice
  • Saturday, August 7 – U.S. Bank Stadium Scrimmage (Frontline Heroes Theme Day)
  • Wednesday, August 11 and Thursday, August 12 – Joint Practices with Denver Broncos

The Vikings will also host a scrimmage at U.S. Bank Stadium on Aug. 7.

Season ticket members can claim or buy tickets for training camp starting at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 22. Access for the general public will start at 10 a.m. on June 24.

The Vikings had a modified training camp without fans last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
