Saints fans invited to minicamp practices

METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) - Saints fans will have a chance to check out the team at work during a minicamp in June.

The Saints announced three practices - June 16, 17 and 18 - will be open to the public from 11 a.m. to 1:20 p.m. at the team facility on Airline Drive in Metairie.

The practices are free and gates open to the public 45 minutes before practice begins.

The team suggests fans arrive early. Everyone must go through a security check, including hand-wanding and a check of all bags. Backpacks, video cameras, oversized handbags, outside food and beverage and pets are not allowed.

Food and drinks can be purchased on site.

Fans should keep an eye on the forecast, though. The team will close the practices to the public if they must be moved inside because of bad weather. Fans can keep up with any alerts, updates or schedule changes daily on the team's website.

Fan parking is available in the Zephyr Field parking lot.
