Seating will be on a first come first serve basis on the east side of the stadium in the lower levels. On weekends the lower bowl of the west side of the stadium will be open as well.


After each practice there will be a select group of players signing autographs along the lower field walls for a short period.  Please be considerate of all fans wanting to get a chance to get autographs.


Kids will have the opportunity to experience training camp with the interactive kidzone located on the main concourse at the north end of the stadium. There are combine like football drills, an obstacle course and football toss available.  Please be advised that kids must register to enjoy the activities, and registration tables will be at the entrance of the kid zone.  Kid zone activities will run through August 20, 2016, but will not be available the last week of camp.

From July 29 through August 6th the Arizona Cardinals will allow kids in the kid zone to write "Pep Talks" to their favorite Arizona Cardinals before the season starts. Completed forms can be left in the Kid Zone or submitted via social media to the Arizona Cardinals.

Kids also will have a chance to get wristbands to experience a free post practice autograph session.  This is a first-come first-served basis, and sign ups will take place at the Children's Autograph Experience table at the entrance of the Kid Zone.

Food and Beverages:

There will be several concession stands open during practices that will offer food and beverages for patrons to purchase.

If you are going to camp, please shoot us some pictures of the experience on our Twitter and Facebook pages and if you are up to it write about what you saw in the fanpost.  Fanpost experiences will get posted on the main Revenge of the Birds page daily, so if you are there, let us know how things went, but also what you saw.

Have a great time at camp everyone.
