Loyola Marymount University
The Rams and Chargers will hold their NFL training camps about five miles apart from each other in Los Angeles this summer.

LOS ANGELES — The Rams will host their training camp this summer on the campus of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, the team announced Tuesday.

Practices will be held on LMU’s Westchester campus, which is just five miles north of the Chargers‘ new training facility in El Segundo. Fans will be able to attend practice on select days as the team prepares for the upcoming season.

“We are thrilled to team with our partner LMU to bring Rams Training Camp presented by UNIFY Financial Credit Union to the heart of Los Angeles,” Rams President Kevin Demoff said in a statement. “Our organization constantly looks to evolve our operations, and calling LMU home for these few weeks presents incredible opportunities for this new chapter of Rams Training Camp.

“We look forward to bringing Rams fans and the LMU community together with our players and coaches as they prepare to compete for another championship.”

Coaches and players will stay in LMU’s residence halls, train in the Lions’ athletics facilities and dine and hold meetings on campus. Public practice days will offer live entertainment, photo opportunities with Rams Cheerleaders and mascot Rampage, family-friendly activities, giveaways and more.

Specific dates, free tickets, and times of practices will be announced in the coming weeks. Fans can visit www.therams.com/trainingcamp for more information about the camp.

“I am grateful to the dedicated and spirited LMU and Los Angeles Rams colleagues who view our partnership as a gateway for collaboration,” LMU President Timothy Law Snyder, Ph.D., said in statement. “Together, we do more than elevate our students.

“We are setting a precedent for igniting a brighter world by transforming challenges into opportunities and inspiring a next generation of leaders and innovators.”

Five NFL teams are scheduled to hold their training camp in Southern California with the Rams training at LMU, the Chargers at their new facility in El Segundo, the Dallas Cowboys in Oxnard, Las Vegas Raiders in Costa Mesa (where the Chargers used to train) and the New Orleans Saints at UC Irvine (where the Rams used to train).

Loyola Marymount University and the Los Angeles Rams announced a partnership last September, making LMU the Official Higher Education Partner of the Rams.
