Bears fans will need to sign up for free training-camp tickets

The Bears announced their training camp schedule Thursday — and this year features a new wrinkle.

To enter practice, fans must first sign up for free tickets for each single day by going to chicagobears.com/camp. Tickets will be emailed, and can be acquired immediately.

Camp is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on days the team is practicing. The first 1,000 fans to enter the practice gates will get a team-themed giveaway.

The Bears’ full schedule at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais is as follows:
