Win Tickets To the Eagles’ Academy For Men

The Eagles are hosting a cool event this weekend that will give fans the chance to see up-close how Chip Kelly is running his operation at the NovaCare Complex.

It’s called Eagles Academy For Men, and there are two sessions:

* Saturday, May 18th from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
* Sunday, May 19th from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Select players, coaches and alumni will be on hand as fans get the opportunity to watch tape and run through drills on the practice fields. There will also be a tour of the weight room, training room and locker room.

Lunch will be provided in the team cafeteria, and each fan will receive an autographed item.

Birds 24/7 has a pair of tickets to give away to each session. To be eligible to win them, all you have to do is become a fan of our Facebook page. On Thursday afternoon, we will randomly select the winners. If you’re already a fan of Birds 24/7 on Facebook, you’re automatically eligible.

Please note that the event is only open to men who are 18 years or older. The team holds a separate event for women.

Tickets are also available by calling 215-463-5500 or visiting PhiladelphiaEagles.com.

    Carnival Barking…… The Eagles found a way to package and sell slices of Chip Kelly.

    The Eagles are first an entertainment option competing against many in that area to sell tickets and, Lurie found a way to sell tickets to the Chip Kelly experience.

        Need every drop to feed the revenue stream.

        You’d prefer a ticket price increase?

          Ticket prices were increased this year.

        Not in the least, Jeff Lurie is a marketing genius with a fetish for opening additional revenue streams. His back ground in ticket peddling won over the owners in his application to purchase the Eagles.

    Great event. I went last year and it is the best fan event they do. I’d go this year if it just didn’t fall on a bad date for me. People should definitely try and get the free tickets.
