Saints to open three minicamp practices to public

METAIRIE — The Saints will open three of their five minicamp practices to the public next week, the team announced Thursday.

The Saints will hold their three-day full-squad minicamp starting Tuesday at the team’s training facility at 5800 Airline Drive in Metairie. The public is invited to attend the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday practices set for 10:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.

Coach Sean Payton will also hold practices on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, but those sessions will be closed to the public.

In the event of inclement weather, the team may move practice indoors with little or no advance warning. Fans attending any open practice will not be allowed inside the indoor facility, due to space limitations.

There is no admission charge to watch the minicamp practices and gates will open to the public at 9:30 a.m. each day. Parking will be available in the Zephyr Field parking lot just west of the Saints practice facility.
