The Miami Heat will hold a public scrimmage at Florida Atlantic University at the conclusion of their training camp on September 30.

The Heat will host media day at AmericanAirlines Arena on September 26, and then head to FAU for their off-site training camp from Sept. 27-30. At the end of that, they will have a public scrimmage, which will probably benefit some cause.

The training camp will be closed to the public.

The game will likely be streamed on Heat.com for everyone to see as well. It will be our first look at this year’s team as they play against each other.

Here is the official press release:

MIAMI, FL – The Miami HEAT announced today that they will hold their 2017 Training Camp at FAU Arena on Florida Atlantic University’s Boca Raton campus, from Tuesday, September 26 through Saturday, September 30, 2017.

Following Media Day on Monday, September 25 at AmericanAirlines Arena, the HEAT will travel to Boca Raton and will conduct two-a-day practice sessions Tuesday through Friday. The HEAT will hold a public scrimmage at 11AM on Saturday at FAU Arena, and will then return to Miami. Details about the scrimmage will be forthcoming.

Media availability will take place following the first session only, with a viewing time to be updated daily. A media workroom will be set up within the gym.

Training camp is not open to the public. The Boca Raton Resort & Club is the Official Resort of the 2017 Miami HEAT Training Camp.
