Arizona Football to have limited open preseason practices

The 2021 Arizona Football is quickly approaching, and as preseason camp is soon set to start, the Wildcats will have limited open practices for fans. 

We’re just 46 days away until the start of the 2021 Arizona Football season and that means that preseason training camp is just around the corner as well. However, unlike any other year in recent memory, this one will be a bit different as the Wildcats will be more accessible.

Just months ago, we had covered how head coach Jedd Fisch was doing his best to bring more exposure to the Wildcat program, which meant making the program more accessible to the fans and media, ultimately making Arizona Football feel a bit like a family again.

At the beginning of his tenure, those ideas might have merely been just words for coach Fisch, however, since his arrival, he has put those ideas into action. From involving more alumni to allowing Spring practices to be viewed by the fans like you and me, it has been a refreshing sight to see.

Well, the accessibility will seemingly continue as Arizona Football released their preseason schedule and will allow fans to witness some of the action.

It is a different era in Tucson, and no longer will Arizona continue to operate in secrecy. Fisch and Co. have been doing their best to change the perception of the program, and while it may be a long road ahead, the change from Kevin Sumlin to coach Fisch has been refreshing.

While not all the practices will be open to the public, Arizona did announce that 13 of them will.
