The 49ers will open “several” practices at Levi’s Stadium during training camp this summer, according to CEO Jed York.
York via Twitter on Tuesday reiterated a statement he made last June that the 49ers would open selected practices to fans – something that was not done a year ago due to the construction of the Santa Clara stadium. Dates and more information will be announced in the near future, York stated.
The 49ers are scheduled to open training camp on Wednesday, July 23. The earliest a team can open camp is 15 days before its first exhibition game. The 49ers open their exhibition season Thursday, Aug. 7, at the Baltimore Ravens.
The only weekend dates in which the 49ers could have practices open to the public would be July 26 and 27, and the following weekend Aug. 2 and 3.
The official opening of Levi’s Stadium is scheduled for Aug. 2, when the San Jose Earthquakes of Major League Soccer play the Seattle Sounders.
The 49ers plan to remain in the Baltimore area after their first exhibition game to participate in joint practices with the Ravens through Monday, Aug. 11.
The next weekend, the 49ers open their home exhibition season on Sunday, Aug. 17. Under coach Jim Harbaugh, the 49ers have closed all practices after the second exhibition to media and fans.
