The Chicago Bears have announced their 2021 training camp schedule, where they will welcome a limited number of fans back to camp for 14 open practices.

Chicago is set to report to Halas Hall on July 27 before the team’s first practice on July 28.

This will mark the first time the Bears will hold training camp at Halas Hall after 18 years practicing at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, which left many fans feeling disappointed about the move.

Unfortunately for fans, only a limited number will be allowed at practice during this training camp.
