The Western Mustangs’ quest for the 31st Yates Cup and seventh Vanier Cup in program history began this week as the Purple and White hit the field for the team’s 2016 training camp, at TD Stadium. All practices are open to the public.

Returning players from last year’s squad will be joined by a strong 2016 recruiting class to participate in the camp which runs from Aug. 15-27. Training camp leads directly into the team’s season opener on Sunday, Aug. 28, when Western hosts the Windsor Lancers at 7 p.m. at TD Stadium.
