JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Jaguars will participate in two joint practices with the Minnesota Vikings during the 2018 preseason, the club announced today. The Jaguars will practice with the Vikings on Wednesday, Aug. 15 and Thursday, Aug. 16, in the lead-up to the team’s second preseason game on Saturday, Aug. 18 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minn.
“We look forward to traveling to Minnesota to work with Coach Zimmer and his team at their new state-of-the-art facility, the Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center,” said Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone. “Having the opportunity to practice with another conference finalist during training camp will allow us to compete with great players and coaches and continue to push ourselves. We believe that these joint sessions will provide us with an opportunity to improve as a football team, which is always the goal for training camp.”
Both joint sessions with the Vikings will be open to the public. Due to anticipated high demand for training camp, the Vikings will set a daily attendance capacity, which is expected to be approximately 5,000 fans per day. General admission tickets for training camp will be free, but fans must reserve tickets in advance on Vikings.com. There will be no access to training camp without a reserved ticket. The Vikings are still determining a plan for parking or shuttles, but like previous camps at Minnesota State University, Mankato, a fee will be charged.
