The Kansas City Chiefs 2015 training camp schedule has been released! The Chiefs rookies and quarterbacks will report to camp at Missouri Western University in St. Joseph, Mo. on Tuesday, July 28 while the veterans will report on Friday, July 31. The first full practice with everyone that is open to the public will be on August 1.
All but a few of the Chiefs camp practices will begin at 8:15 a.m. That makes it harder for some fans to go to practice but as a media member I love that it's early in the day before that Missouri sun gets you.
There are several notable dates on the Chiefs training camp schedule:
First day: Saturday, August 1
Family Fun Day: Saturday, August 8
Season Ticket Holder Appreciation Day: Wednesday, August 12
Last practice: Wednesday, August 19
The busiest days will probably be the first day, Family fun day and STH appreciation day so hit those days if you want to see a good crowd. If you're just a football nerd and want to watch some football and not deal with crowds, then choose a week day morning to come by. Team autographs will take place on August 1, 2, 8 and 12 but some players will be signing every day after practice.
Here's our primer from last year on attending Chiefs training camp. Much of the same still applies.
Teams can hold training camp 15 days before their first preseason game so the Chiefs, who play their first preseason game on August 15, will start training camp on August 1.
