CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Cleveland Browns fans made their presence known Sunday morning at the muni lot in anticipation of the 2021 home opener.

People were camped out, packing the space to make sure they had the chance to get rowdy responsibly.

Michele Moneypenny said she’s ready to safely have a blast.

“Obviously we have some social distancing going on — we’re outside,” she said. “If you feel like you need to wear a mask, that’s fine. I think everything is safe, and everyone is having a good time.”

Rodney Suggs said Sunday’s tailgate is something that fans needed.

“Everybody’s gotten tired of this pandemic,” he said. “So everybody’s really proactive rather than reactive.”

Suggs said the city of Cleveland has done its best to balance both fun and safety.

“I’ve gotten vaccinated, so I feel safe,” he told 19 News.
