Browns Add Seating For 2017 Training Camp, Scrimmage Returns To FirstEnergy Stadium

CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – The Cleveland Browns have made some big changes for training camp next month.

The team announced Tuesday morning that they will nearly double the seating capacity at camp by adding a 1,250 seat grandstand with an awning to provide shade which will also include a standing-room area at the top.

To accommodate the new seating, the practice fields will be reconfigured this year.

“We have spent a significant amount of time discussing how we can really elevate the training camp experience for our fans, especially as it is a unique time for our team, coaches, players and fans to directly interact with one another each day,” senior vice president of marketing and media Dave Freeman said. “To create the best atmosphere for everyone, including our football team, we made significant changes to our seating and viewing areas, as well as adjusted the registration process, so fans can plan accordingly yet still have the opportunity to freely attend and have a great view of our practices.”

The Orange & Brown scrimmage also returns to FirstEnergy Stadium following a 3-year hiatus on Aug. 4. In 2014 it was moved to Akron’s Infocision Stadium before relocating to Ohio Stadium in Columbus for 2015 and 2016.

Fans are still encouraged to register for tickets via the team website but this year the Browns will also welcome walk-up fans on an “as space permits” basis.

Browns 2017 season ticket members will have an exclusive window to register for open practices from June 20-21 prior to public availability opening at 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 22.
