INTEREST UP ON SECONDARY MARKET: In Cleveland, Kevin Kleps examines the prices of Browns tickets of the secondary market and notes tickets on Vivid Seats have "increased 11.6% year-over-year,” while SeatGeek data shows Browns tickets “are up 30.5% -- the fourth-largest jump in the league.” Cleveland-based Amazing Tickets Owner Mark Klang said that the difference in the prices the team's games are fetching on the secondary market this year “is more than 40% ahead” of ‘13. Klang “credits the increase” to the presence of Manziel. Klang: “The Browns are on ESPN 24/7, they're on the NFL Network all the time -- that's all because of Johnny.” Kleps notes on the secondary market, the “hype, combined with the reduction of about 4,000 seats (FirstEnergy Stadium's capacity is now about 68,000), has meant better value for resellers.” Klang said that his Browns regular-season seats “all are selling for at least $100” (CRAIN’S CLEVELAND BUSINESS, 8/25 issue).
