If you’re ready for some football and can’t wait for the season to kick off, the Lions will offer fans a sneak peek starting in early August.

Seven Lions training-camp practices are open to the general public:

Aug. 5: Novi High School, 7:30 p.m.

Aug. 7: Allen Park headquarters, 3:30 p.m.

Aug. 8: Allen Park headquarters, 9:30 a.m.

Aug. 10: Allen Park headquarters, 8:30 a.m.

Aug. 11: Allen Park headquarters, 2 p.m.

The Lions will also open their first two Allen Park practices — at 3:30 p.m. on Aug. 3 and 4 — to season-ticket holders only.

Gates open 30 minutes before each practice. Space is limited, and fans will be admitted on a "first-come, first-served" basis.

There’s no charge for admission, but for the Novi High School practice, fans must reserve tickets (limit four per person) at detroitlions.com starting at 10 a.m. on July 22.
