Where can I sit?

Stretching bores me. Is there non-football fun stuff to do?
After every practice, all fans 14 and younger will have the opportunity to catch a pass on the field from Eagles alumni. Music, face-painting artists, appearances from SWOOP and cheerleader entertainment will start at 10:30 a.m. at The Headhouse Plaza.

I used to get autographs at Lehigh. I guess that's over, right?
Wrong. Every fan entering the Linc receives a scratch-off ticket. Winning tickets will be directed to the SCA and West Club levels for player autographs after practice.

You do rainchecks?
If inclement weather forces practice away from the Linc, the Eagles will let fans know about this decision no later than 9 a.m. Fans can access this information by calling the Eagles Training Camp Hotline, logging on to PhiladelphiaEagles.com or following @Eagles on Twitter. The team will also communicate this information through email and social media. Cancelled practices at the Linc won’t be rescheduled, because of scheduling conflicts.
