Eagles players typically tend to autograph stuff for fans after practice is over as they’re walking off the field. Maybe you’ll get lucky.
The theme of today's practice is Military Appreciation Day.
As part of our Military Appreciation Day festivities, two kiosks on HeadHouse Plaza will be offering all active and retired military members a voucher for a free hot dog and nonalcoholic beverage. To receive your voucher, you must present a valid military ID at the kiosks, and then redeem your voucher at any point of sale concession stand in the main concourse. Vouchers will be limited to one per valid ID. In addition, a 25% discount will be offered to active and retired military members at all Eagles Pro Shop locations inside of Lincoln Financial Field (valid military ID required).
After the Military Appreciation practice, pre-selected members of the military will be chosen by the USO to receive jerseys “off the backs” of Eagles players. Other designated military members will have the chance to participate in a post-practice flag football game on the field. These unique experiences will be offered to specific military members, designated by the USO prior to practice.
