The Iowa football program revealed details Friday confirming what head coach Kirk Ferentz previously stated about having another open spring practice at Valley Stadium in West Des Moines this spring.

The open practice is scheduled for April 12 and will start at 1 p.m. Central that afternoon. This will be the second year in a row Iowa has done this after holding a spring practice outside Iowa City for the first time last April.

According to a release sent out by the UI Friday, gates at Valley Stadium are scheduled to open that morning around 11:30 a.m. CT and details about how fans in Central Iowa can obtain tickets are expected to be announced sometime next week. Fans aren’t going to be allowed to tailgate on the Valley Stadium premises beforehand.

Iowa starts its spring football period March 26 and in addition to this open practice in West Des Moines, the Hawkeyes will continue holding their annual open practice inside Kinnick Stadium at the very end of the period, which is April 26. The open practice that afternoon in Iowa City is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. CT.
