On Tuesday Morning, the Miami Hurricanes announced the 2019 Spring Football Practice schedule. Starting next week, Miami will have 15 sessions on the field — 12 practices and 3 scrimmages — to work together and develop the team.

One of the things that was being debated ahead of this release was whether and where there would be a Spring Game in 2019. To answer both questions:

So yeah. There will be TWO open scrimmages this spring. One in Miami at the Mecca for HSFB, Traz Powell Stadium. The other in Orlando at Camping World Stadium, the site for the 2019 season opener against Florida.

Now that that’s out of the way, here’s the full schedule, and some additional narrative, from Miami Athletics:

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami football program announced Tuesday its 2019 spring practice schedule, which features two opportunities for fans to see the Hurricanes in action.

UM kicks off spring practice on Tuesday, March 19, the first of 15 total sessions. All 12 on-campus practices will be conducted in the Carol Soffer Indoor Practice Facility. In addition, there will be three scrimmages, two of which will be open to the public. All other practice sessions are closed to the public.

The first open scrimmage will take place on Saturday, April 13, at Traz Powell Stadium in Miami at noon. The second open scrimmage will be at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla., on Saturday, April 20 at noon. Admission is free to both events.

“We’re excited to kick off spring football and we’re also excited that our fans have two chances to see us scrimmage in April,” head coach Manny Diaz said. “It was important to us to have a scrimmage in Dade County, and we also have an opportunity to experience the setup at Camping World Stadium to conclude the spring.”

Camping World Stadium is the site of Miami’s regular season opener against Florida in the Camping World Kickoff on Saturday, August 24.

“We’re so excited to be hosting Miami, adding another chapter to the Hurricanes’ long history at Camping World Stadium,” Florida Citrus Sports CEO Steve Hogan said. “Spring events provide exposure for Orlando while improving quality of life in our region, and this particular event will give fans in Central Florida an exciting preview of what’s to come when Miami returns to face Florida in the Camping World Kickoff later this year.”

As part of its annual Spring Tour, the Hurricane Club will be hosting a brunch before the scrimmage in Orlando at The CenterState Club at Camping World Stadium. The event will feature Director of Athletics Blake James and head coach Manny Diaz. For more information visit https://thenewmiamiorlando.eventbrite.com.
