Updated Browns 2017 training camp information

The Cleveland Browns 2017 training camp will feature 15 free public practices at the team's facility in Berea, beginning Thursday, July 27, as well as free access to the Orange & Brown Scrimmage at FirstEnergy Stadium on Friday, Aug. 4.

Tickets remain available for prioritized access to select training camp practices. Even for sessions for which all tickets have been distributed, Browns fans who have not yet secured tickets are still welcome to attend camp in Berea on a walkup basis, as space permits.

Registration is also currently open for the team's Orange & Brown Scrimmage at FirstEnergy Stadium on Friday, Aug. 4.

In addition to an upgraded training camp layout that includes more than twice as many seats as previous years, the Browns have modified the ticketing process to ensure as many fans as possible are able to receive an up-close and personal view of the team's preparations for the 2017 season. The registration process offers Browns fans the benefit of planning their attendance well in advance of the desired sessions, particularly for those traveling from out of town, while also allowing fans the opportunity to attend at their leisure on a daily basis, subject to availability. 

For 2017, the Browns have changed the field layout and incorporated additional seating throughout the venue to offer more fans a quality view and experience during training camp, highlighted by an approximately 1,250 seat grandstand. The seating structure is complemented by a standing-room area at the top.

Browns training camp will also host a Play Football! field where youth football players can enjoy the game in the same area as their favorite professional football team. The Browns and NFL will host Play Football! Month throughout August, when teams across the NFL will celebrate youth and high school football players and coaches.

Other new fan-focused elements for 2017 training camp include a 40-yard dash timing station, an expanded indoor Pro Shop with exclusive items, a five-hole miniature golf course and more.

The Browns Puppy Pound will also return to training camp for the third consecutive year. During the past two years of training camp, a total of 120 puppies have been adopted at the Browns Puppy Pound through the Northeast Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NEO SPCA).

Browns fans may secure prioritized access by registering for tickets online and downloading the Browns Mobile App. Once registered, fans will receive their tickets through the Browns Mobile App to enter practice. While registering for tickets is strongly recommended, the team will also grant Cleveland fans admittance to practice sessions on a walk-up basis, as space permits.   

Browns 2017 season ticket members received 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.

All tickets to training camp will be accessible through the Browns Mobile App. Printed tickets will not be available for training camp in 2017.

On Friday, Aug. 4, FirstEnergy Stadium will host the Orange & Brown Scrimmage, offering fans a unique chance to enjoy practice in the heart of downtown Cleveland. The stadium practice will be a full-pads scrimmage format in 2017.  

The Browns' largest open session returns to Cleveland after extending opportunities to fans in nearby regions through the Orange & Brown Scrimmage in Columbus the past two seasons and the 2014 Family Day at University of Akron's InfoCision Stadium.

Free registration for the Orange & Brown Scrimmage opened to season ticket members on June 27 and to all fans on June 29. The practice will begin at 5 p.m. and will conclude with select autograph opportunities.

Fans will have the opportunity to register for prioritized access for up to three practices in Berea, along with a maximum of four guests, as space permits. Parties wishing to attend more than three practices or book for groups of six-or-more people are encouraged to contact the Browns ticket office directly (440-824-3434).

When arriving to open practices, fans can access the Browns training facility through the Beech Street entrance, with gates opening one hour before each session starts. Membership-services stations will also be available to all visitors inside and outside the complex to assist fans.

Parking is available on the campus of Baldwin Wallace University, near the intersection of Beech Street and Bagley Road.

Cleveland Browns Training Camp is in association with FirstEnergy and Discount Drug Mart. The Orange & Brown Scrimmage is in association with Ohio Department of Health and Giant Eagle.

Browns fans are encouraged to visit www.ClevelandBrowns.com and the Browns Mobile App throughout the year, as well as for a daily training camp resource. The Browns Mobile App will offer fans important updates prior to each session, including weather and additional information.
