After much speculation, the Arizona Cardinals announced on Thursday that they will in fact be practicing with the Kansas City Chiefs starting August 6th, one day after they play the Saints in the Hall of Fame game. It did not behoove the team to come all the way back to Arizona between the 5th and 10th. They will play the Chiefs in their first official preseason game on August 10th.

Also, the team finally released the details of when training camp will not only start, but the specific dates and times for each of the practices.

Let's take a look at the dates along with what the Cards can expect from their practices with the Chiefs after the jump.

The Red and White Practice, despite some uncertainty surrounding it, will be apart of the schedule once again. It is one of the favorite experiences for fans looking to attend camp. Also, the stadium was under renovation last season, but it appears that if practices are moved in due to rain (which there is always a good chance), fans will be able to go into the Skydome.

The Cardinals being able to practice against the Chiefs is beneficial to them in numerous ways. First and foremost, it cuts down on unnecessary travel. Secondly, they get to practice against another NFL team, which always helps. Here is what Ken Whisenhunt had to tell Darren Urban about the situation:

"There are many benefits to this arrangement and we appreciate Coach (Romeo) Crennel and the Chiefs working to make this happen. Logistically it makes a lot of sense since we play Sunday night in Canton and then Friday night at Kansas City but I've always found there's also great value in getting work against another team in a setting like this. We're looking forward to it," coach Ken Whisenhunt said.

If you are planning a summer trip, Flagstaff or Missouri State Western University might have just become a couple of possibilities.
