The Philadelphia Eagles and Lehigh University today announced they have a signed a contract that will keep Eagles training camp at the school through the summer of 2013. Lehigh, located in Bethlehem, PA, has been the summer home of the Eagles 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 Joe Sterrett, Murray H. Goodman ’48 Dean of Athletics at Lehigh.
