On Thursday, the Browns released the dates and times of their training camp practices, including 20 that will be free and open to the public later this summer.
Training camp is scheduled to begin Saturday, July 31, at the Browns' headquarters in Berea. Among the free practices open to the public will be a "Family Day" intrasquad scrimmage Aug. 7 at Cleveland Browns Stadium.
“We are excited to once again be hosting training camp at our Berea facility,” Browns President Mike Holmgren said in a statement. “I’ve always thought that training camp is a great opportunity for the fans to come out and see their favorite team up close. While the location makes it convenient for our fans who live locally, I know it has become a tradition for Browns fans from different parts of the country to make training camp a summer destination, and we look forward to seeing everyone out here this year.”
Fans can enter the Browns' training facility in Berea through the Beech Street entrance. Parking is available on the campus of Baldwin-Wallace College at the George Finnie Stadium lot, which is located off Beech Street near the intersection of Bagley Road.
