While it doesn't carry the same energy as gameday, going to 49ers training camp can actually be pretty entertaining.

For some San Francisco 49ers fans, attending training camp is a great opportunity to watch live practices and to get those rare moments up close and personal with players, many of whom will take time to sign autographs and take pictures they otherwise wouldn't have time for during the regular season.

For other fans, training camp is the necessary tool to check out who has a great shot at making the 53-man roster and who is on the fringes, risers and fallers, position battles... and quarterback competitions.

Not as if we haven't heard enough of that already.

Aside from the pandemic-altered 2020 season, the Niners have long welcomed fans to training camp, and here's how you can check out the 2023 practices.
