BROWNS TICKET TAILGATE AND FAMILY NIGHT CANCELED DUE TO WATER DAMAGE AT CLEVELAND BROWNS STADIUM

On Saturday evening, Cleveland Browns Stadium suffered water damage in several areas in and around the facility due to a break in a fresh water supply line. While the problem is still being assessed by both the Cleveland Browns and City of Cleveland officials, the Browns would like to emphasize to our fans that ensuring that the stadium is prepared for the upcoming season is our top priority. The organization will take all necessary steps to achieve this goal.

Due to the fact that repairs need to be made prior to the Browns first preseason game versus the Kansas City Chiefs on August 11, the Browns are canceling the Browns Ticket Tailgate event scheduled for Friday, July 20, as well as Family Night,  scheduled for August 3.

Refunds for Family Night tickets can be made in two ways:

·        All tickets purchased via Ticketmaster Charge-by-Phone or the Internet will be automatically refunded on the credit card used for the original purchase. Face value of each ticket as well as the per ticket convenience fee will be refunded. No action is necessary by the ticket holder. Physical tickets are void and have no value.

·        For tickets purchased at a Ticketmaster Retail Location or at the Cleveland Browns Ticket Office, please return the tickets to the original sale location for a full refund.
