EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings will report to training camp on Thursday, July 28.

The team announced Friday the start date for their 51st consecutive trip to Mankato.

The first practice will be Friday, July 29 at Minnesota State University, with a Saturday evening workout under the lights at Blakeslee Stadium on Aug. 6. The remainder of the on-field sessions will be revealed later. The first preseason game for the Vikings is at Cincinnati on Friday, Aug. 12.

The Vikings and the university have two years remaining on their contract through the 2018 season to hold camp on campus.

The Vikings have purchased land in Eagan for the purpose of shifting their headquarters there from Eden Prairie in two years, creating the possibility that their training camp site would eventually move too.
