Philadelphia Eagles Extend Training Camp Agreement With Lehigh University

The Philadelphia Eagles announced Tuesday that they have agreed to hold their training camp at Lehigh University through the summer of 2013.

The Eagles have been holding camp at Lehigh, located in Bethlehem, PA, since 1996.

"Lehigh University has been an incredible partner of ours, and we couldn’t be more excited about returning for an 18th training camp in 2013," said Eagles president Don Smolenski. "They provide us with first-class accommodations year in and year out - not only for the players, coaches and staff, but also for the thousands of fans who attend the practices every day. We have a great relationship with Lehigh as evidenced by the communication we had through the lockout last season, which allowed us to hit the ground running once football activities resumed. We’re looking forward to another successful summer at Lehigh."

"We are pleased to once again partner with the Eagles to provide the Lehigh Valley and NFL fans with one of the league's most intimate and exciting training camp experiences," said Lehigh director of athletics Joe Sterrett.
