The BC Lions are returning to Canada’s Tournament Capital from May 19 to June 6, 2019, for their 10th consecutive training camp, presented by Sun Peaks Resort. We look forward to welcoming the team and cheering them on as they work to capture a 7th Grey Cup title this year.

Residents are invited to take part in the 2019 Fanfest presented by BCLC on Saturday, June 1, from 5:00 to 9:30 pm.

Celebrate with BC Lions players, trainers, and coaches through a variety of festivities. The Lions will host a free amateur football clinic starting at 6:00 pm, followed by a practice/scrimmage from 7:30 to 8:50 pm. After the practice, players and coaches will be available for pictures and autographs. For the kids, there will be face painting, inflatable games, prizes, and more. The night will conclude with a fireworks celebration at 9:30 pm.

“We’re grateful and excited to be staging Training Camp in the Tournament Capital for a 10th consecutive year, one of the longest stretches in our proud history,” said team president Rick LeLacheur. “The scenic surroundings of Kamloops have grown to become our home away from home and our time here is an unrivaled experience in our league as the backdrop of this beautiful city is surpassed only by its warm hospitality and outstanding facilities.”

The BC Lions have trained in Kamloops since 2010, utilizing the facilities at the Tournament Capital Centre, Hillside Stadium, and Thompson Rivers University. Fans are encouraged to show their “Lions Pride” at all of the practices. For a complete list of practice times, visit BCLions.com/Training-Camp.
