The Phoenix Suns have announced a unique opportunity for fans of the program to get an up-close look at the Suns as they will hold a training camp that will conclude with a scrimmage open to the public, according to a press release. Perhaps the most impressive part though is that it won’t cost you a penny to get into the venue, which has Suns fans, especially those in Northern Arizona, excited for the events to get underway.
In preparation for their 50th season, the Phoenix Suns will return to Northern Arizona for training camp from Sept. 26-29. The Suns will start camp at the campus of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff and will end the week with a free to the public Open Scrimmage on Friday, Sept. 29 at 6:30 p.m. at the Prescott Valley Event Center, home of the Northern Arizona Suns, the parent club’s NBA G League affiliate.
“We’re excited to open training camp in Flagstaff, which holds historical significance for our franchise and is home to a great partner in NAU,” said Suns President Jason Rowley. “Our first-ever Open Scrimmage in Prescott Valley is a terrific opportunity to engage fans in the area and deepen our relationship with the community, as we continue to grow the Northern Arizona Suns and the important role it plays in the development of players, coaches and staff.”
The Suns’ training camp workouts at NAU will be held at the J.C. Rolle Activity Center and the team will travel to Prescott Valley to conduct the Open Scrimmage at the Prescott Valley Event Center on Friday, Sept. 29 at 6:30 p.m.
The free event featuring a Suns intra-squad scrimmage is a unique opportunity for fans to see the 2017-18 Suns team in person before the first home preseason game on Oct. 9 vs. the Utah Jazz. The event will have open seating on a first-come, first-served basis and feature a post-game autograph session.
