Practices will be held on the new turf of Spaulding Field, which is immediately east of the new Wasserman Football Center.

The public is invited to come to Westwood for the opening of the UCLA football team’s training camp, which begins today.

The practices are open to the public for the first two weeks of camp, which will be held on campus at Spaulding Field this year rather than in San Bernardino. Fans can watch practice each day from the top level of Parking Structure 8. Visitors must purchase a permit to park in Structure 8 or anywhere on campus. A full rundown of dates and times is listed below.

Fan Appreciation Day is scheduled for 3 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 12. It will feature a variety of activities planned at Parking Structure 8. Season ticket holders will be invited to a special reception at the Luskin Conference Center during the practice.

Camp this year also marks the opening of the Wasserman Football Center. The state-of-the-art football-exclusive building houses locker rooms, a strength and conditioning center and training rooms, a players lounge, coaches’ offices, team meeting rooms, equipment rooms, video rooms and a recruiting lounge and outdoor terrace. In addition, the entryway will feature displays honoring current and former UCLA Bruins.

The $65 million facility is named the Wasserman Football Center in recognition of support from the Wasserman Foundation and its president, UCLA alumnus Casey Wasserman.

The Wasserman Football Center isn’t the only new thing the football team will be using. A new artificial turf has been installed on Spaulding Field.

After camp concludes, all practices will be closed. The 2017 season kicks off with Southeastern Conference foe Texas A&M on Sunday, Sept. 3 in the Rose Bowl at 4:30 p.m.
