BETHLEHEM, Pa. – The National Football League’s Commissioner/Madden Training Camp Tour brought NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Hall of Fame coach John Madden to Philadelphia Eagles training camp Tuesday on Lehigh University’s Goodman Campus.
Goodell spent time at Eagles camp Tuesday afternoon at the team's practice and spoke to the media and fans afterwards. Later on, he spoke with players and coaches and spent some time chatting with a man whom owner Jeffery Lurie introduced as the team’s oldest fan. Joe Brown has been coming to camp for 36 years, and he’s had a field pass for camp every year since 1988.
This is the 15th consecutive year the Philadelphia Eagles have had training camp at Lehigh University’s Goodman Campus. Players arrived in Bethlehem on Monday, July 26 to prepare for the start of their annual training camp, which began the 27th with rookies and selected veterans. The last day for fans to check out all of the action will be August 17 with the Eagles leaving campus the next day.
Fans can watch Eagles practice on the John C. Whitehead practice fields and get a glimpse of their favorite players for no admission fee. There is free parking throughout the Goodman Campus for the plethora of fans that come throughout the region to watch the camp. In addition to a free view of the Eagles in action, other nearby activities include an autograph tent, activities for children, and the Eagles also offer NFL-style skills tests to fans on the adjacent Lehigh outdoor track.
