Cleveland Browns 2015 training camp opens July 30 featuring 11 free practices in Berea

By Mary Kay Cabot, Northeast Ohio Media Group


CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Will Josh McCown return to winning football this season? Will Johnny Manziel look better this summer than he did last year? Will first-round pick Danny Shelton be able to shore up the 32nd-ranked run defense? Will Cameron Erving beat out John Greco for the right guard spot?

These and other questions will begin to be answered July 30 when the Browns open training camp in Berea. The Browns announced dates and times for training camp Monday afternoon.

The camp, which is free and open to the public, will feature 11 practices over the span of a little more than two weeks ending on Aug. 15.

This year's training camp has an added sense of urgency not just because the Browns need to get back on the winning track, but because the club is poised to move training camp to Columbus next season. As it is, the Browns will conduct an Orange and Brown scrimmage Saturday, August 7 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Ohio Stadium on the Ohio State campus. All 60,000 free tickets were accounted for in a matter of days.

In addition, the Browns will break up training camp this year by traveling to St. John Fisher College outside of Rochester, N.Y. for a pair of practices against the Buffalo Bills Aug. 17th at 10 a.m. and Aug. 18th at 6 p.m.

The two clubs will then head back this way for the second preseason game Aug. 20 at 8 p.m. at FirstEnergy Stadium.

For the training camp practices in Berea, fans may register online and print a free admission ticket. Browns 2015 season ticket holders can begin registering from July 14-16 and the general public can begin on July 17th at 10 a.m.

Tickets can be obtained on www.ClevelandBrowns.com or the Browns Mobile App, which will also provide daily updates, including weather and additional information for each practice.

Fans can register for a maximum of three practices in Berea for up to five guests per session. Those wishing to attend more practices or bring larger groups can contact the Browns ticket office directly (440-891-5050).

Last summer, the Browns' 13 training camp practices -- not including Family Day -- set the third-highest combined attendance since 2005 with a total of 43,740 fans, who came from 40 states, plus Washington, D.C. Attendance for 12 of those sessions topped 3,000, while only 11 practices from 2005-2013 did so.

The Browns conducted their Family Day last year at the University of Akron's InfoCision Stadium in front of 20,673 fans.

Gates for camp open one hour before practice, and fans can enter the Browns training facility through the Beech Street entrance. Guest services stations will be available inside and out of the complex to assist fans.

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

The following events will also take place at camp, per the Browns release:

* On Saturday, Aug. 1, the Browns will be supporting the Northeast Ohio community through First and Ten by hosting the Annual Cleveland Browns Blood Drive, hosted at more than 10 sites across northern Ohio to benefit the American Red Cross.

* For the eighth consecutive year, the Cleveland Browns Foundation and Shoes and Clothes for Kids have partnered for the Back to School Campaign to raise awareness of kids' needs for new shoes and clothes in the Greater Cleveland area, with the goal of increasing donations to provide children shoes, clothing and learning supplies as they return to school. Volunteers will be at camp entrances July 30-31 to collect new school supplies and monetary donations to support the initiative.

* On Saturday, Aug. 22, the team will host the Cleveland Browns Moms Clinic, an interactive and educational forum designed to educate mothers about how the game is being played safer and better than ever before. The event is one of a series of Football Safety Clinics for moms around the NFL, working directly with the Cleveland Browns and USA Football to improve the game of football. Registration details will be provided at a later date.

Browns fans may call Browns membership services (440-891-5050) for more information on registration and practice times. Details are also available at www.ClevelandBrowns.com, on Twitter by messaging @BrownsFanSquad or e-mailing tickets@ClevelandBrowns.com

I can't believe we're essentially a month away from football being the main sport again. I'm only 25 so I'm not complaining yet, but the phrase "the days are long but the years are short" gets truer every day.


Now, if we can just get some winning football that would be perfect...
