The Seahawks announced last month they were sold out of the 62,000 season tickets they had made available for 2013.
Now fans are jumping at the chance just to see the team practice, with five of the 14 training-camp workouts open to fans already sold out.
As they have every year since 2008, the Seahawks are offering opportunities for fans to watch the team work out at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton during training camp.
The team is opening 14 practices to fans, who must register through the team’s website at bingtrainingcamp.seahawks.com.

Seahawks officials said Monday that five of the workouts are already sold out, which they said is the first time they have sold out that many practices before the beginning of camp. That number includes all four of the practices on a Saturday or Sunday, as well as another on a Friday. All of the open practices are from the beginning of camp on July 25 until Aug. 14, and most begin at 10 a.m.
As in past years, Seahawks players will be available for daily autograph sessions for kids.
Food vendors will also be available on the berm near the practice field, including the Metropolitan Grill as a new featured vendor. There will also be appearances by the Sea Gals and Seahawk mascot Blitz, along with tents with ticket information, Seahawks gear for sale and inflatables for children to play in.
Other rules for attending practice can be found on the team’s website at http://trainingcamp.seahawks.com/index.html.
