Impresively large and airy, this is a huge step up from the old Municipal Stadium which had several view obstructions. This 73,000 capacity stadium has some of the most loyal fans in football, most notably the ones in the Dawg Pound - the bleacher section behind the east end zone - so be prepared for a rowdy crowd.
Food and Drink:
You can find the standard fare like hot dogs and burgers at almost any stand, but we really like Browns Bistro stands located throughout (check our map). In addition to a lot of typical stadium food, here you'll also find Kids Meals, Buffalo Chicken Mac N'Cheese, a Walleye Basket, and Veggie Burgers. (Veggie Burgers also found at Goal Line Grilles).
Dawg Pound Deli (Sections 107 and 133) is another favorite and serves up sandwiches like the Reuben and Smoked Turkey, as well as Kosher Dogs. On cold nights, you can grab soup and chilli there.
Non-alcoholic Family Zone is in section 543 and serves up plenty of food for younger fans.

The Stadium and Neighborhood:
Cleveland Browns Stadium is located in downtown Cleveland right on the waterfront of Lake Erie in what is appropriately called The Lakefront District. It's a prime spot near many restaurants, bar, hotels, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum. The Cleveland Indians also play just a mile down the street at Progressive Field, so many places in the area cater to sports fans. A mile in almost any direction will have you passing a variety of places to hit up before or after a game, so check out our "BEfore & After the Game" exterior map for some suggestions.
Getting There and Parking:
The stadium is easily accessible from I-90, I-77, and I-71, and while there is no private lot owned by the Browns, there are more than 150 lots within a mile of the stadium. Some cash spots are sold at the North Port Authority Lot just North of the Stadium with access via 3rd Street. It's $25 and because the stadium is located on an active port, cash spots may be limited here.
West 3rd Street Lot and Dock 20 Lot (off 9th street to the West) are also $25. There are cheaper options the further away you get. Check outCleveland Central Parkingwhere you can print out a coupon and save some money. Our exterior map will also show you the locations of these and other parking places so be sure to check it out. Canal Basin Lot for example (1519 Merwin Ave) is only $5.
The Cleveland Municipal Parking Lot at 1500 S. Marginal Rd across the shoreway is tailgating central. At only $15 (a steal compared to other stadiums for tailgating) there are over 2,000 as well as public restrooms.
If you don't want to drive, the RTA is the way to go. The West 3rd Station on the Waterfront Line is just across the street. Extra rail service on game days starts 2 hours prior and you can buy a $5 All-Day Pass. For more info: http://www.riderta.com/
