The Schedule for Training Camp is Here!

Get Ready for the First Ever Camp at Twin Cities Orthopedic Performance Center!

The Vikings released the schedule for the inaugural training camp at their new facility, the aptly named Twin Cities Orthopedic Performance Center. As the new Vikings HQ is in Eagan and not Mankato, and because the Vikings made some moves this off-season (that you may have heard of), this promises to be one of the biggest and most special training camps in the storied history of the Vikings organization!

The following is the press release that was just… Released, along with the schedule for camp! Quick side note, we here at purplePTSD.com and VikingsTerritory.com will be covering camp from a lot of different angles to bring you the content, information and access that you want! So make sure to stay tuned to both our sites and especially our YouTube Channel as we’ll be live-streaming a lot of the access that we do get at camp during the times that it’s permitted by the Vikings, of course.
