BEREA, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Browns reached their registration capacity for 2014 Family Day, which will be hosted Saturday, Aug. 2 at University of Akron's InfoCision Stadium. Browns fans collected more than 25,000 free tickets less than 10 hours following the public release on Thursday at 10 a.m.
"We are thrilled with our fans' immediate response and that University of Akron's InfoCision Stadium will be an exciting, dynamic atmosphere for our players, coaches and phenomenal fans," said Browns President Alec Scheiner. "We are striving to create memorable experiences for Browns fans, and certainly, along with engaging pre-game and postgame activities, our Family Day is shaping up to be a tremendous day for all involved."
Fans who were unable to secure tickets to Family Day are encouraged to visit www.ClevelandBrowns.com and register for free tickets to Browns training camp practice sessions.
When the Browns compete in Akron, it will mark the first time Family Day has extended outside of Cleveland, allowing fans from Akron and beyond to enjoy live Browns action. Since 1946, Cleveland has played 19 preseason games in Akron, with the most recent exhibition contest drawing 30,751 fans on Sept. 8, 1973.
The 2014 Cleveland Browns Family Day is in association with University Hospitals and College Advantage.
