1-15 Browns lower ticket prices

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

Com­ing off a de­plorable 1-15 sea­son, the Cleve­land Browns have low­ered the price of many tick­ets.

The Browns said re­duc­ing ticket prices “was the right thing to do for our fans.” Tick­ets will be de­creased in 40 per cent of FirstEn­ergy Sta­dium.

The team an­nounced the de­crease Wed­nes­day and re­leased a let­ter that own­ers Dee and Jimmy Haslam sent to sea­son-ticket hold­ers. The Haslams out­lined the team’s plans to take “an ap­pro­pri­ately ag­gres­sive ap­proach to free agency” and the in­tent to keep core play­ers. The Browns re­cently signed line­backer Jamie Collins to a four-year, $50 mil­lion con­tract.

The Browns said no sea­son ticket prices will in­crease and that more than 90 per cent of sea­son tick­ets in the up­per bowl will be de­creased. Prices will drop from $5 to $15 per game, de­pend­ing on lo­ca­tion.

Cleve­land owns the No. 1 over­all pick in this year’s NFL draft.
