Browns announce camp schedule


AP Exchange

The Browns will start the season Sept. 13 at the New York Jets.

Cleveland’s march to the opener will begin in earnest Thursday, July 30 with the start of training camp.

The Browns announced their training camp schedule Monday, and it includes 11 free practices open to the public at the team’s training facility in Berea.

This could be the final training camp held in Berea, as the team is considering moving at least part of camp off site in the future.

Fans should register online and print a ticket for admission. Season-ticket holders are allowed to register July 14-16, with public registration starting July 17 at 10 a.m.

This is the second season the Browns have used a registration process. Fans can sign up at ClevelandBrowns.com or by using the team’s mobile app. They can register for three practices with a maximum of five guests.

Nine of the practices are scheduled for 9:30 a.m.-noon. The other two — Aug. 9 and 15 — will be from 10:20 a.m.-12:10 p.m. Aug. 15 is the final practice open to fans.

The Browns will also hold an Orange & Brown Scrimmage on Aug. 7 in Columbus, and practice against the Buffalo Bills on Aug. 17-18 at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, N.Y.

The registration for the Orange & Brown Scrimmage at Ohio Stadium has closed.

The 13 training camp practices in Berea last year were attended by 43,470 fans — the third-highest total since 2005.

Fans should enter the facility through the Beech Street entrance, with gates opening an hour before the start of practice.

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