The Detroit Lions have added two more opportunities for fans to watch their training camp practices, including one at Wayne State University in Detroit.
The team will practice next Wednesday night on Tom Adams Field at Wayne State Stadium. Practice begins at 7:30 p.m., with gates opening at 6 p.m.
Admission is free, but fans must pick up a ticket from either Ford Field or Wayne State.
The Lions also will open up practice the following day, Thursday at 2 p.m. at their Allen Park facilities.
Admission is again free, but there's another catch -- fans must pick up a wristband in advance from one of the Southeast Michigan Ford Dealers.
The Lions previously announced that practices on August 1 (3:30 p.m.), August 2 (10:30 a.m.), August 4 (8:30 a.m.), August 5 (3:30 p.m.) August 6 (7:30 p.m.), August 7 (2 p.m.), August 11 (3:30 p.m.) and August 13 (2 p.m.) will be open to the public.
All of those practices will be in Allen Park except for August 6, which is at Ford Field. Fans will be admitted free of charge with no tickets or wristbands necessary.
