With the ongoing pandemic, most fans haven’t seen the Rams in action since their final game in the LA Coliseum.
However, the Rams will have Training Camp open on select days.
Here is everything to know about the 2021 LA Rams’ Training Camp.
Days and Times
Training camp for all teams except for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Dallas Cowboys, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers open camp on July 28. The Rams will have fans for that first week from July 28 through July 31. The following week fans can attend every weekday except for Thursday. Then the second week of Aug. will be the final week for fans, with only Monday and Tuesday open.
Every day, except for July 30 and Aug. 6, will open at 4 p.m. The two Fridays of camp will open at 3 p.m. Gates will open 90 minutes before the start of practice. The only exception will be Saturday when the gates will open two hours before practice.
Where Is Training Camp This Year?
Training camp will take place at the University of California, Irvine. For those who can’t make it to UC Irvine, The Rams will stream select practices every day of camp open to fans to therams.com, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and the Rams app.
Fans will have to purchase a parking pass for $18 and $36 for oversized vehicles. But if you prepurchase your pass in advance, it will only cost $15 and $33 for oversized vehicles. There is also a plan to purchase every day in advance for $135 and $297 for oversized vehicles.
Fan Activations and Giveaways
There are plenty of things to do at Training Camp besides watch practice. All fan activations will open with the gates either 90 minutes or two hours before the start of practice.
The Rams have done a great job at making this a family-friendly event. The main stage will host music, cheerleader performances (on select days), and interviews with current and former players and coaches. There will also be a family day on July 31
There are plenty of things for kids to do. Every day will have a kids zone with different inflatable stations and a mini 50-yard football field. Then there will be two events geared towards kids. The first is a free Junior Cheerleading Clinic on Aug. 3, open to kids five to 18. Then there will be a youth sports day the following day. Fans will have to register their kids for the cheerleading clinic by July 31. For the adults, there will be the Corona Beer Garden open before and during practice.
There will be several giveaways during the ten days. There will be free posters, towels, car flags, and more for fans to enjoy. There will also be opportunities to take photos with and get autographs from Rams legends every day.
Things to Know Before You Go
The first and probably the most important thing is there will be no direct interactions between current players and coaches. So you will not have an opportunity to get your jersey or ball signed by current players. However, Rams legends will be available every day for autographs and photos.
The second is, just like an NFL game, Training Camp will enforce a clear bag policy. Everyone can bring one clear bag not exceeding 12” by 6” or a 12” gallon zip lock bag. If 2021 will be your first game, get tickets for Aug. 2 for the clear tote bags.
The third is Training Camp will require masks indoors for unvaccinated fans. The Rams will also not check for proof of vaccination or negative COVID test.
Lastly, fans can not bring their own chairs. Instead, there will be bleachers for fans on a first-come-first-served basis.
Fans will have to reserve tickets ahead of time. Tickets are free and can be purchased ahead of time at therams.com/trainingcamp.
Fans can reserve up to four adult and four child tickets for each day. Tickets are already sold out for July 31, the only Saturday date.
