Let’s face it: our Browns didn’t get to celebrate as many Victory Mondays as expected last season. But, in 2022, a new-and-improved squad aims to change all that — and take us back to the NFL playoffs where we belong.
So, as the Browns get ready to kick off training camp later this month, it’s safe to say that we’re feeling pretty optimistic about the season ahead. Dust off that jersey, throw on a dog mask (we’re not judging), and check out these tips on how to make a day at Browns training camp in Berea one to remember.
Practices open to the public starting on July 30, so download the Cleveland Browns mobile app now to make the training camp entry process a breeze. Then, on the big day, just bring along your smartphone and flash your digital tickets at CrossCountry Mortgage Campus’s Beech Street entrance for speedy admission.
Keep an eye on the Browns mobile app for the most up-to-date information on training camp — and don’t forget that the NFL All Clear bag policy applies to all eleven open practices this summer.
Not all the action takes place on the practice field, as the Browns offer a wide variety of activities to keep fans — young and old — entertained. While the Browns have not yet finalized this year’s slate of activities, here are a few of our faves from years past:
- The Browns Play Football! field zone lets fans live out their NFL dreams by participating in football challenges like the 40-yard dash and vertical jump. Better start stretching now.
- Adopt a dog (and new best friend) at the Puppy Pound. In partnership with the Northeast Ohio SPCA, the Browns hope to find plenty of deserving pooches new forever homes.
- Make your Insta-friends jealous with unique photo ops featuring life-size images of current Browns stars, oversized bobbleheads of franchise legends and more.
Good news: there’s not a bad seat in the house. Kick back and relax on the grandstand bleachers overlooking the practice fields, but snag your spot early because it’s all available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Whether it’s Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney blowing up blockers, Nick Chubb blasting through the line of scrimmage, or Amari Cooper skying high to catch a pass, there’s no shortage of top-class talent on this roster. And every drop of sweat shed this summer moves the Brownies one step closer to the Super Bowl.
No one wants to hike miles in the blistering Berea sun just to make it to training camp. After all, these practices are for the players to get in shape — not us. Limited general admission parking will be available near the team facility (just follow the posted signs), with additional options at Baldwin Wallace University and the Berea Recreation Center.
Dawgs Gotta Eat
The end of practice doesn’t mean your day in Berea has to be over, too. Hit up either Boss Chick N Beer (wings FTW) or Maya Mexican Restaurant for some post-camp fuel, before washing it all down with a Grindstone Gold lager from Cornerstone Brewing Company.
Before heading home, grab a sweet treat from Three Girls Cupcake Shoppe — where they whip up a fresh variety of delectable desserts each week. With cupcake flavors ranging from pink lemonade to Cinnamon Toast Crunch, how can you go wrong?
