NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Like 28 other teams, the Titans will be part of a unified training camp curtain-raiser, reporting on July 27th.

But the fan experience will be different this summer, as construction of the team's new facility takes up the sideline where spectators were primarily positioned to watch practices at the team's MetroCenter practice facility.

The team is still finalizing plans, but public access to training camp is likely to be extremely limited, if available at all.

“It’s a challenging environment due to the construction and we are still living with some COVID-related protocols," said Gil Beverly, the team's senior vice president/chief marketing and revenue officer. "We are looking to provide whatever access we can, but it will definitely be different this year.”

The Titans have typically held a couple of practices at Nissan Stadium.

But those will have to be worked around other events.

The Titans will train in Tampa Bay in advance of preseason Week 2 against the Bucs -- presumably on Wednesday, Aug. 18 and Thursday, Aug. 19th ahead of their Aug. 21 game.

There is also the possibility of a night session at a local high school. In both 2017 and 2018, the Titans held a practice session at Centennial High School in Franklin, Tenn.  

The team could accommodate relatively small groups of sponsors and, perhaps, select season ticket-holders, at their practice fields for regular camp practices in the smaller space available. They've brought in such groups to practice that were not open to a broader public in the past.

Construction on the new building is expected to extend into the season. Renovations of the old building -- which don't touch areas previously worked on like the locker room, weight room and cafeteria -- are scheduled to be complete before camp.
