RICHMOND — With tickets still remaining from the much-ballyhooed ticket lottery for Redskins Fan Appreciation Day and next week’s joint practices with the New England Patriots, Redskins officials on Wednesday announced a “standby line” will be made available to those wanting to attend.

Fan Appreciation Day will be held Saturday at the team’s training camp facility in Richmond.

After taking Sunday off, the Redskins will return to the Bon Secours training camp facility on West Leigh Street Monday for the start of three days of joint practices with the New England Patriots, Aug. 4-6, which will precede the teams’ preseason-opening clash Aug. 7 at FedEx Field.

Fans who didn’t get tickets to Fan Appreciation Day or the joint practices through the lottery may line up near the entrance to the complex along DMV Drive. They’ll be admitted all four days on a first-come, first-served basis.

Those are the only days of training camp that require a ticket. The full training-camp schedule is available here.
