Browns Partner With Cleveland Amusement Park In Hopes Of Boosting Game Attendance

Fans attending the Oct. 1 Bengals-Browns game at FirstEnergy Stadium will "receive a free ticket" to the Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio, and the pass "will be good" for any day the park is open in '18, according to Kevin Kleps of CRAIN'S CLEVELAND BUSINESS. Each fan "will get a boarding pass that has a code that can be redeemed at cedarpoint.com/Browns following the game." Once fans enter the code, they will "receive an e-ticket that is valid" for the entire '18 season. However, fans must redeem their code between 5:00pm ET on Oct. 1 and 11:59pm on Oct. 4 to get the pass. Kleps: "It shows that even the Browns -- who used to be able to sell out every game, no matter how poorly the season went -- can struggle to fill every seat." An attendance number of 67,431 is needed for a sellout at FirstEnergy Stadium. Last season, the Browns "sold out their first five games, but the announced gatherings" for the final three games were 60,034, 60,028 and 57,272. As a result, the "final attendance average of 64,311 was the lowest" in the stadium's 18-year history" (CRAINSCLEVELAND.com, 9/21).
