Arizona Cardinals NFL Training Camp
July 24 - August 21, 2012
Each year, thousands of Arizona Cardinals fans flock to Flagstaff to see the team take the field to train at Northern Arizona University. Sports Illustrated’s Peter King ranked the Cardinals training camp among “My Top 5 Training Camps: Places to Get Up Close and Personal with NFL Players.” ESPN.com recognized Cardinals training camp as the best in the NFC West, saying:
“The Seahawks have it nice on Lake Washington, but there's something special about going away to camp if the venue is right. Northern Arizona University fits the profile for the Cardinals. It's far enough from Phoenix to escape the blistering heat, but close enough for fans to turn out in large numbers. The high-desert scenery and nearly 7,000-foot elevation combine to set apart NAU from other camp venues in the division and the league overall.”
RED & WHITE PRACTICE
On Saturday, July 28 the Cardinals will host a special “Red
& White” outdoor practice from 11:30 am-1:20 pm. Weather permitting, the
practice will be preceded by an outdoor full-team autograph session for
kids 12 and under (10:45-11:10 am) and conclude with a live goal-line
session. The Cardinals will also have a night practice on Wednesday,
August 1 from 7:15-9:15 pm at the remodled Lumberjack Stadium on NAU's campus.
All other practices in Flagstaff will be held on the grass fields adjacent to
the NAU Walkup Skydome.
Practice times are subject to change and fans are encouraged to check the

Admission and parking are both free. Select Cardinals players and coaches will be available following each practice to sign autographs as they come off the field.
