While more and more teams are cutting back on practices open to the public, the Cowboys didn’t become America’s Team by limiting access. They are having as many open practices as they usually do at two different training camp sites.

They will return to Oxnard for the eighth year in a row and the 13th time overall. It’s become the Cowboys’ home-away-from home.

The team charter arrives in California on July 25, with the first practice two days later. The Cowboys’ final practice in Oxnard is Aug. 15 before they leave for Hawaii for a preseason game against the Rams.

They will have 15 open practices in Oxnard.

But the Cowboys’ training camp isn’t over once they return to Texas. They have a contractual obligation to open practice at their indoor facility in Frisco.

The Cowboys have not announced the schedule of the open practices in Texas, but it is expected to follow last year. The Cowboys had five open practices in Frisco in 2018.

So the Cowboys likely have 20 open practices or 19 more than the Eagles.

  1. Great atmosphere at the training camp practices. Not to mention it is 70 degrees and sunny in Oxnard, CA in July-August, whereas DFW is cooking at over 100 in that same time period. Free of charge for United members, just pay for parking or get an elite pass for free vip parking.

  2. Is it a coincidence that the discrepancy in open practices is a direct opposite to the number of championships that the Eagles have won over the last 20 years vs what the Cowboys have? The world may never know….

    5 old an dusty is still better than one new and shiny!

  4. Part of the greatness of how good the cowboys are and can be is that they can put their scheme up on the big screen and still execute plowing with zeke and dak making plays. It takes serious defensive fronts to stop them if they just play their game.

    Yeah, I said all that lol. It’s true though. The eagles and cowboys games these days are some of the best in the league because it’s two teams that still hit and like to run and stop the run going at it twice a year.

    Jason Garrett’s playbook is so simple, why not have lots of open practices….

    “Gee, Dad, Dak just handed off to Zeke!”

    Typical Eagles fan that always has big D in their head. Also a typical Eagles fan that has no clue what he is speaking of. See, there is this new Offensive Coordinator who by all reports is being given some free reign to change up the plays and selection. You might want to look into that.
