Steelers Will Start Training Camp Early on July 21



While the NFL will have a unified start to training camps for the first time in its history on Tuesday, July 27, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be taking the practice field a little earlier.

The Steelers will start their training camp six days prior on July 21, a byproduct of meeting the Dallas Cowboys in the Hall of Fame game on Aug. 5.

Dallas will also begin on July 21. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who kick off the season on Thursday, Sept. 9 against the Cowboys, will be permitted to begin their training camp on July 24.

The league is also planning fan events to coincide with training camps on July 31, the NFL’s way of welcoming back its supporters after a year where they were sequestered away by the pandemic.

Not only will the Steelers be kicking off training camp ahead of nearly every other NFL team, but all signs are pointing toward the club making its much anticipated return to St. Vincent College in Latrobe.

After Steelers team president Art Rooney II said that the club plans to have training camp back in Latrobe this summer, the league informed clubs Tuesday that they expect fans in attendance, clearing the way for Pittsburgh to make its long-awaited return.
