The quest for a second consecutive NFC East title officially begins July 25.

The Washington Redskins will open their first training camp at their new facility in Richmond that day; a camp that will last through Aug. 16.

Washington opens their preseason schedule on Aug. 8, when they visit the Tennessee Titans. Their first preseason home game will take place 11 days later, when the Pittsburgh Steelers visit FedEx Field.

Before either of those games, though, the team will hold its annual Fan Appreciation Day on Aug 3.

“Fan interaction is a priority for our team and our new facility is built specifically with our fans in mind," Redskins GM Bruce Allen said in a statement.

This will be the first year that the Redskins will train at the new Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center. The team held its training camp for several years at Redskins Park in Ashburn before the move.

Two practices will be held per day and admission will be free for all sessions. Players and coaches will be available for autographs after sessions end.
