UCLA football fans who hoped to get another look at Coach Chip Kelly’s team are going to have to wait until September 1st when they team plays Cincinnati at the Rose Bowl in the season opener.
That’s because, unlike past years, all of Fall Training Camp will be closed to the public.
While this is a change for the UCLA Bruins, a lot of Pac-12 teams opt to do this when it comes to Fall Camp including USC, Stanford, Oregon, Washington and Utah.
Some of those programs have opted instead to hold either a FanFest and/or one open practice/scrimmage. But, unlike in past years, UCLA will not be holding a fan appreciation event this year either.
In other words, if you were planning to make a trip to Westwood to watch the Bruins prepare for the season, you will want to cancel your plans.
While you may not be able to watch UCLA prep for the coming season, all is not lost if you’re looking to watch football practice in Southern California this August. Three NFL teams, the Rams, the Chargers and the Cowboys, have all started their training camps where practices are open to the public. The Rams are at UC Irvine until August 16th. The Chargers are in Costa Mesa until August 23rd. And, the Dallas Cowboys are back in Oxnard until August 16th.
