Super Bowl champs plan return to Albany for camp
The Super Bowl champion New York Giants say they’re planning to
return their training camp to Albany this summer.
Pat Hanlon, the team’s vice president for communications, told
Albany-area media outlets Thursday that the Giants plan to follow
up on franchise President and CEO John Mara’s pledge to bring the
camp back to upstate New York.
The Giants decided during last year’s NFL labor lockout to hold
the 2011 training camp at their headquarters in East Rutherford,
N.J. Mara had said then that the team intended to return its
training camp to Albany in the summer of 2012.
The Giants trained at the University at Albany for 15 years,
their longest stay at one training camp site in the 87-year history
of the franchise.
