On Thursday, the Los Angeles Rams announced their 2016 training camp schedule, which includes a scrimmage at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, where the Rams will play home games for the 2016 NFL season.
Seventeen of the 23 practice days listed are open to the public, though 16 of those 17 open practices require a trip down to Orange County. After holding rookie mini-camp in Oxnard, the Rams now move down to the University of California at Irvine for training camp.
The first practice session will be held on Saturday, July 30, while the scrimmage at the Coliseum will be held on Aug. 6. The final open session for the Rams' training camp take place on Thursday, Aug. 25. Fans should note that gates open 90 minutes prior to the start of practice and select players will sign autographs after all open practices.
The team will have another three sessions only open to the media. As such, training camp for the players will run for a full month and conclude on Aug. 30, with the Rams slated to play their final preseason game on Sept. 1 in Minnesota.
In addition to welcoming in fans to watch training camp live in person, the LA Rams are also the subject of the 11th season of Hard Knocks, an HBO Sports documentary style series that features exclusive footage from NFL training camps. The five-episode HBO series will premier its first episode featuring LA's professional football team on Aug. 9.
The Rams open their preseason with a game at the Coliseum on Aug. 13 against the Dallas Cowboys, and the LA Rams launch their 2016 regular season at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara on Sept. 12.
LA will host its first professional football home game at the LA Coliseum on Sept. 18 against the Seattle Seahawks.
