The City of Prescott submitted a proposal Friday to become the new host of the Arizona Cardinals training camp.
In the proposal, the city said it was working in cooperation with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and others to bring the team to Prescott, whose three-year deal with Northern Arizona University expired at the conclusion of the 2012 camp.
“Our goal is to provide a new, permanent summer home for the Cardinals as part of a sports complex that would offer nearly year-round opportunities for youth and amateur sports events and camps,” said David Maurer, Prescott Chamber CEO in a press release. “Until the sports complex is built, Embry-Riddle would house the training camp for at least one year.”
Earlier this week, the team requested the city of Glendale consider hosting the team’s camp.
The Cardinals have held camp at NAU for the past 25 years.
