Browns fever is sweeping Cleveland what with the signing of “Johnny Football”, a new “no nonsense” head coach and a new “attitude”. On August 2, 2014 fans will have a chance to watch the Cleveland Browns in scrimmage as well as participate in a collection of family friendly events throughout the day. With construction nearly but not quite completed at First Energy Stadium the event will be held at InfoCision Stadium in Akron (located at 375 E. Exchange Street, Akron, Ohio 44304).
“Family Fun Fest Zone” opens at 9:30 a.m. and is located outside of the north end of Infocision Stadium on Vine Street. Activities include Alumni autographs from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m., visits by Brownie and Chomps, a dunk tank, inflatables for the kids, a zip line, Radio Disney and much more. The gates to the stadium open at 10:30 a.m. with practice and scrimmages going on from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The stadium holds a total of 27,000 fans and although the tickets are free, fans must register on line at www.clevelandbrowns.com in order to download and print their tickets. You will need this printed ticket in order to enter the stadium from any of four gates (NW, NE, SW, and SE). Concession stands will be open for families to purchase the usual stadium faire and there will be two food trucks available as well.
Following the scrimmage, players will be available to sign autographs (although player autographs are not guaranteed). In case of inclement weather, Family Day may be postponed or cancelled. Everyone who is registered will be notified by e-mail one hour prior to the event if there is a cancellation.
There are a variety of parking lots surrounding the stadium with fees of $10.00. There is also ADA parking spaces (for those with valid Handicap Stickers or License Plates) available throughout the lots near InfoCision Stadium. There will also be an entire area (192 spaces) of ADA parking available at the bottom level of the East Campus Deck (located about three blocks from the stadium). For your convenience a Roo Express shuttle will be available to transport guests from the East Campus Gate to Gate 3 of InfoCision Stadium
For those wishing to be on the cutting edge of Browns Fashion, The Browns Teamshop will be open for business with the latest in gear, souvenirs, custom order jerseys and more. Cash and Credit Cards will be accepted.
