On April 20, 2009, the New York Jets of the National Football League (NFL) signed an agreement with SUNY Cortland that brought the team’s summer training camp to the SUNY campus. In the first three weeks of August 2010, more than 41,000 spectators came to the SUNY Cortland Stadium Complex. Each year, the camp draws devoted fans from New York state as well as the rest of the country to see their favorite players and coaches up close. Although tickets are free, you must have them printed from the New York Jets camp website for admission into the public practices. The 2013 training camp schedule begins Friday, July 26 and concludes Wednesday, August 14.
