Cleveland Browns to scrimmage Aug. 7 at Ohio State


The Cleveland Browns will visit The Horseshoe during training camp.

The team announced on Thursday that it will hold its Family Day Intrasquad Scrimmage on Friday, Aug. 7 at Ohio State’s famed stadium in Columbus.

Tickets will be free, with registration required. Last season, the Browns drew 20,673 to a scrimmage at the University of Akron. It will be interesting to see how many show up at the 104,944-seat Ohio Stadium.

The Browns have discussed the possibility of moving training camp out of the team facility in Berea. Columbus has been a clear option throughout the discussions. The scrimmage could give a good gauge of interest for the Browns in the state capital.

The scrimmage will be held in the late afternoon, with a specific time to be determined. Activities will begin three hours prior to the scrimmage, with the team bringing live music and Browns-related activities to St. John Arena.

Browns season-ticket holders will have the first chance to register for free general admission seats from June 16-19. The rest of the fan base can begin to register June 20.

More details will be announced soon on the scrimmage and on training camp, which is expected to start July 29 or 30.
