Illinois Football Training Camp Schedule Released

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Although we are still over 25 days away from the Illini’s first game of the season, Illinois football officially begins tomorrow as the team will report to Champaign for the start of training camp!

Players reported to campus today and will start their first camp practice at 4:00 p.m. tomorrow. After a week in Champaign, the team will move north to Camp Rontoul for a week from Aug. 11th to Aug. 18th before coming back to campus to round at training camp.

For the first four days of camp, the team will be split into two groups (blue and orange).

These groups will practice separately with one practicing in the afternoon and the other practicing in the evening.

According to fightingillini.com, this “allows the coaching staff to give more repetitions and individual instruction to each player with so many newcomers going through Illinois practices for the first time.”

The team will host its Fan Appreciation Day at Memorial Stadium from 4:00-5:00 p.m.  on Aug. 10th before heading to Camp Rantoul.

Here’s the complete schedule for this year’s training camp for Illinois:
