When the 49ers remained home in Santa Clara for training camp in 2003, they were one of just 12 NFL teams that did not move away for the summer.
It was a growing trend. Just two years earlier, only five teams used their in-season training facility for training camp.
Now, the 49ers are in the majority. Twenty of the 32 teams in the league hold their summer training at their year-round practice facility when camps get going later this month.
The 49ers will still get away as a team for more than four days during training camp. The 49ers are scheduled to have two joint practices with the Denver Broncos beginning on Wednesday, Aug. 26, before the teams play an exhibition game on Saturday, Aug. 29.
A year ago, the 49ers remained in Baltimore for three practices with the Ravens – after a mandatory day off – following the teams' exhibition opener.
The practices in Denver in August will be the only extended get-away for the 49ers this season. Originally, they hoped to remain in Youngstown during the regular season rather than return home between two games in the East. However, the 49ers’ Chicago-Cleveland back-to-back trips are so late in the season, the 49ers scrapped that plan.
Before the 49ers began training at their practice facility in Santa Clara, they held summer workouts at University of the Pacific in Stockton from 1998 to 2002 after moving from Sierra College in Rocklin, which was their summer home from 1981 to '97.
