Season ticket holders have had exclusive access to some of camp’s first practices in previous years but information regarding season ticket holder days has not been released as of yet. It appears there is a window between July 28 and August 1 that may end up designated as season ticket holder days but we’ll have to wait for official word.
[Update: The Lions have formally announced the schedule and season ticket holder dates will be July 28-29.]
