CLEVELAND — On Monday, the Cleveland Browns sent season ticket members renewal information and pricing details for the 2021, and costs are rising in Cleveland as the team hopes for a full stadium come fall.
The Browns announced that the price of season tickets will be increasing for the fourth time in any capacity since 2008 but are still estimated to be among the six lowest totals of all NFL teams in the 2021 season.
Season tickets will range in price, starting as low as $50 per game, the team said. Around 70% of the non-club and non-premium locations at FirstEnergy Stadium will change by $10-$15 per game.
The Browns said that in response to the high demand for seating with the best views and seat options, the most substantial pricing changes will be in the lower bowl, club, premium club and suite tickets.
With the NFL considering a 17th regular season game this season, the Browns are making plans in case the additional game is approved. If so, season ticket members will not be charged extra if the team does have a ninth regular season game this year.
Season tickets are being distributed by the team, with hopes and expectations that FirstEnergy Stadium will be able to operate at full capacity this season as the state continues to expand COVID-19 vaccinations.
The Browns said that while they are preparing for a season at full capacity, they will continue to closely monitor developments with the pandemic and adhere to state and local guidelines. The team said any contingency plans that may be implemented in the event of a reduced capacity at the stadium this season will be relayed to season ticket members proactively.
Cleveland Browns senior vice president of communications Peter John-Baptiste issued the following statement on the 2021 season ticket prices:
While our main focus will always be on the well-being of everyone within our stadium – players, coaches and of course, our incredible fans – we are encouraged by the current developments related to COVID-19 in our region and hope that we will be allowed to have a full capacity at FirstEnergy Stadium this upcoming season. Our team responded strongly to the limited number of fans we were able to responsibly host for all home games last year, and we know how incredibly important it is for our players and coaches to have fans in our stadium creating the best homefield advantage in the NFL. As we do each year, we evaluate our ticket pricing structure based on multiple factors to ensure that it is reflective of the current market, gives our season ticket members various flexible payment options and delivers value while creating the most memorable fan experience.
