The New York Giants concluded their 2008 training camp with an 80-minute morning practice at the University at Albany on Sunday, Aug. 17. The team will play its second preseason game on Monday evening against the Cleveland Browns at Giants Stadium. Head coach Tom Coughlin signed autographs as he left the practice field for the last time this summer with his defending Super Bowl champion squad.

The Giants’ thirteenth camp at UAlbany produced the second-highest attendance total since the NFL team started training in the Capital Region in 1996. More than 44,000 fans attended 19 practice days and 29 practice sessions since camp opened on July 25.

The Giants averaged 2,342 fans per day to break the previous mark of 2,145 that was established over 21 days during 2004. The final attendance total rose 36.6 percent over last summer.

UAlbany will again host training camp in 2009, with a possible extension to be discussed in the future. The Giants’ 14th training camp at the school will be the longest at any location in franchise history. The New York Giants spent thirteen summers at Pace University in Pleasantville, N.Y. from 1975-87.
