The Cleveland Browns have some of the most loyal and passionate fan bases in all of football. Despite an abhorrent recent track record over the vast majority of the past 30 years, things really seem to be turning around as of 2018, when the team was led to seven wins by then-rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield, which is an impressive turnaround for a team that won just one game total in the previous two seasons combined.
Through all of this, the fans still showed up and followed their team as they struggled, and beginning in 2019, this team that’s now being pegged by many as a sleeper to contend for a berth in the playoffs and perhaps more this season have generated plenty of buzz, meaning tickets will be harder to come by than in any time in recent memory.
Because of this, tickets Browns home games at FirstEnergy Stadium are among the most in-demand of any NFL team. We at TickPick are always looking to help fans save money on tickets to any event by being the only marketplace that charges absolutely no service fees, and Cleveland Browns single game tickets are no exception.

Tips for Getting Cheap Cleveland Browns Tickets in 2019
1. Buy your tickets close to game time
One of the oldest tricks in the book for experienced Browns fans is to simply wait until close to game time before purchasing your seats, even if it’s in the parking lot during your tailgate. While this method isn’t foolproof (ticket prices can increase as it gets closer to a game, usually when unforeseen circumstances arise, such as the matchup being a more critical one than fans initially anticipated, a beloved player announcing retirement ahead of a game, etc.), it’s been proven to be one of the best ways for fans to save money on tickets. Sellers will often lower their prices as the game day draws closer out of desperation. This way, they can avoid having their inventory going unsold, which would lead to them eating the ticket cost.
FirstEnergy Stadium has a maximum seating capacity of nearly 68,000. As there’s plenty of seats in this large stadium, a high amount of available ticket inventory prior to a game can only help the buyer, as sellers have more competition and feel pressured to lower their prices in order to sell their tickets.
2. Plan for a non-divisional (non-rivalry) Game
As any Browns fan can tell you, there’s usually more excitement surrounding matchups against their biggest AFC North rivals like the Pittsburgh Steelers than there is against non-divisional opponents, making contests against non-rivals cheaper as a whole. Fans begin doing their research as soon as the NFL schedule is announced in April and begin circling their calendars well ahead of the season to plan out what game(s) they know they’ll want to attend.
3. Shoot for a Game Later in the Season
There’s often a sweet spot for when fans can buy Cleveland Browns tickets at a reasonable price from a secondary marketplace, and that time is toward the end of the season. Home openers are always among the most expensive tickets for any NFL team, and this is due to the fact that regardless of how good a team should be heading into a season, fans of even the NFL’s worst teams have a shred of hope early on that this could be the year. Not to mention, fans who haven’t had meaningful NFL football in their lives for seven months finally get to scratch that itch.
Another reason why it’s usually best to wait until later in the season to buy Cleveland Browns tickets is simply because Cleveland is a cold weather city. Fans who don’t like bundling up and enduring freezing temperatures and windy conditions in November and December will avoid going to games and will instead opt to just watch the game from their couch. If you’re willing to deal with potentially bad weather conditions, you’ll certainly be in line to get yourself a great deal on cheaper tickets.
4. Try to Avoid Prime time Games
It’s pretty self-explanatory, but most games that the NFL deems worthy of having occur during prime time in front of a national TV audience such as Monday Night Football, Thursday Night Football, or Sunday Night Football are ones featuring teams that are expected to be good, rivalry games, or those that fall under both categories.
If you go for an early afternoon game on a Sunday against a team that isn’t very good, this can help you save money on Browns tickets.
5. Buy Your Browns Tickets On TickPick
