Derby County will hold an Open Training Session at Pride Park Stadium in early April.

The training session, which will be open to all Rams fans and presented by principal partner Host & Stay, will take place on Thursday 4th April 2024.

The event will offer a unique opportunity to see how Head Coach Paul Warne and his coaching staff put Derby’s players through their paces on a daily basis with just a handful of fixtures remaining in the current League One campaign.

With the Easter holidays in full swing, it will also offer the chance for youngsters to get out the house and have the chance to engage with the Derby squad.

Supporters will be based in the East Stand and entry, from 10am, will be FREE * via Turnstiles 33-38.

Training will commence at approximately 10:30am and supporters are advised to ensure they arrive in good time beforehand, with both the DCFC Megastore and Ticket Office open for business as usual.

Fanatics, who operate the DCFC Megastore, will be running plenty of great deals on the day and those make purchases in-store will be able to enter their Lucky Dip for a chance to win signed merchandise, game tickets and more!

Attendees will be able to get an insight through live mid-session interviews, to discover more about the Rams’ training drills and session plans, while club mascot Rammie will also be at the event!

The players will have a period of around 20 minutes after the training session to interact with fans and sign autographs.

Please Note: These timings are limited and will not be extended due to the players’ training day schedule. We would like to offer a polite reminder that only one item per person can be signed to ensure each individual can sign items for as many people as possible and to avoid anyone going home disappointed.

* Supporters aged 15 and below must be accompanied by someone aged 18 or above.
