For the third straight season, the Ravens will hold an open training camp practice at M&T Bank Stadium and will also return to Annapolis for an open practice at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

The team announced on Wednesday that the open practice at M&T Bank Stadium will be held on Monday, July 28, beginning at 7 p.m., with a fireworks show to follow.

The Navy practice will be held on Monday, Aug. 4, at 7 p.m., with an on-field youth football clinic beforehand. Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, an Anne Arundel County resident, has been a strong proponent of the Navy practice, and it has drawn about 20,000 in each of the past two years.

Both practices will feature autograph sessions for children afterwards.

The Ravens have held the offsite practices each year since they moved training camp permanently to their Owings Mills facility three years ago. The open practices were designed to create some interaction with fans after the camp was moved away from McDaniel College, where it had been open to the public for years.

In addition, the Ravens will once again hold a lottery to allow a small number of fans to attend practice at the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills. Fans can enter their name in the lottery beginning on Thursday, June 10, and the deadline to apply is  July 1. Up to 300 fans can be accommodated at each workout, according to the team. 

The Ravens will hold their first full-team training camp practice on July 24, and the final one is scheduled for Aug. 14.
