The New York Jets will have eight training camp practices open to fans this summer.

The dates include two joint sessions with the Philadelphia Eagles before their preseason game. The team announced tickets for fans will be free through the team’s website beginning Wednesday at 10 a.m. Club and PSL holders were able to get early access.

Seven practices will be at the team’s facility in Florham Park, New Jersey.

The Jets did not have fans at any training camp practices last summer because of the coronavirus pandemic.

As permitted by New Jersey policies on business and gatherings, fans will not be required to show proof of vaccination. Face coverings also will not be required. Fans who attend any of the practices are asked to adhere to the NFL’s fan health promise, which provides COVID-19 guidelines.

Also, fans will not be permitted to get autographs or photographs with players or coaches at practice sessions, per NFL and NFLPA protocols.

The Jets will have a scrimmage at MetLife Stadium on Aug. 7. The Jets and Eagles will practice together at the Jets’ facility on Aug. 24 and 25.

The Patriots and Eagles will hold joint practices prior to their preseason game next month.

New England will travel to Philadelphia for workouts at the Eagles’ NovaCare Complex on Aug. 16 and 17 in advance of their Aug. 19 preseason meeting.

The 2021 season marks a return of joint practices and preseason games, which were not allowed in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions during the pandemic.

The Patriots last held joint practice sessions in 2019, traveling to both Nashville, Tennessee to practice with the Titans and to Detroit for workouts with the Lions.

New England has held at least one joint practice session every year since 2012, except for 2018.
