The New Orleans Saints announced today that the team will conduct their annual training camp at the team’s year-around training facility in Metairie, La., this summer. The announcement was made by Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis.
The Saints are tentatively scheduled to begin training camp in late July. The team has previously held training camp at the Metairie facility from 2003-2005 and from 2009-13 with practices open to the public. In addition, the Saints have also held open training camp practices at the facility the past three seasons late in the training camp schedule. Verizon will once again be the title sponsor of the Saints’ training camp.
“Our entire organization is excited to be returning to hold training camp at our facility in Metairie in 2017,” said Saints Owner Tom Benson. “This will be a great opportunity for our passionate fans from throughout the Gulf South to be able to experience the fun, excitement and interaction of Saints training camp as our team prepares for what we expect to be a very exciting season.”
The Saints have held the first phase of their past three training camps at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, W.V. Loomis praised the efforts of The Greenbrier’s staff in hosting training camp.
