METAIRIE – The end of last season may have left a bad taste in the mouths of many Saints fans, but instead of wallowing in their own pity, the Who Dat Nation showed up in numbers as the team opened their doors for training camp Friday.

Each practice at the Saints practice facility can house around 3,000 fans. Out of the 12 practices scheduled there, seven have been sold out including the full opening weekend slate.

Fans were eager to catch their first glimpse of the team since January while many look to have their shirts, hats and more autographed by their favorite players.

This year, the Saints have touted new additions to enhance the fan experience. Perhaps the biggest welcomed add is an overhang over the fans’ bleachers and misters that provide some added comfort in the brutal summer heat.

Five dates still remain for fans that wish to attend practices:

Monday, July 29
Tuesday, July 30
Wednesday, Aug. 7
Monday, Aug. 12
Thursday, Aug. 22

Fans must have tickets for entry. Fans can visit online to acquire tickets.
