Cleveland Browns Family Zone Tickets for Oct. 23rd

I received this via an email from JumpStart Sports, a program that offers various sports activities to preschool-aged children in communities throughout Northeast Ohio.   It’s a really great program, we’ve participated in soccer with them the past two years, so I happen to be on their email list.

I wanted to share this mostly because, I didn’t realize there was a Family Zone at Cleveland Browns stadium.   And, this sounds like a great opportunity for any families who are interested in taking their kids to a game!

You could not find a less expensive way to enjoy the Browns game with your children! The Cleveland Browns will be hosting us on Sunday, October 23rd for their game against the Seattle Seahawks. We will receive tickets at a discounted rate and all purchasers will be entered to win a spot to participate in the Browns pre-game flag holding ceremony!!!

We will have tickets in the Family Zone (normally $35) and in the Upper Level reserved seats (normally $40) for just $28 a seat! In the Family Zone, drinking and bad language are prohibited, so it is appropriate for young children.

Several people will be selected randomly to participate in the on field flag presentation prior to the game. Coaches in our flag football program will also be able to earn a spot on the field before the game. Ask us for details on these opportunities.
