History of 49ers Camp: Tension and Toil at Training Camp

The San Francisco 49ers camps have evolved since the first one in 1946. In the early days of pro football, players returned from their off-season jobs and used summer sessions to lose weight, study the playbook and prepare for a 12-game season.

Since 1946, the 49ers have utilized eight different football facilities for summer training. Listed here are some training camp highlights and misadventures.
