The Green Bay Packers begin their Organized Team Activities practices on Monday, but they will do so out of the public eye. The first practice of the year today will not be open to the public, with the team likely practicing inside the Don Hutson Center.
However, that will change on Tuesday, May 22nd, which will be the team’s first public practice of the year. The Packers will have three days of OTAs available for public viewing, starting on Tuesday:
- Tuesday, May 22nd
- Thursday, May 31st
- Monday, June 4th
These practices will be held outside at Ray Nitschke Field, weather permitting. In addition, the team’s minicamp practices are all open to the public, as is tradition. However, keep in mind that the team will often skip one day’s practice in minicamp in favor of a team-building exercise; in the past, the Packers have gone clay shooting, gone bowling, and played dodgeball, among other activities.
Fans interested in attending open OTA practices should be prepared to arrive early, with practice officially starting at 11:30 AM each day. Media should also be present at the open practices, which will allow for fans outside of the area to follow along in real time. Keep it here at APC for live updates from practice on each of these days.
