The Cleveland Browns have a unique problem on their hands, and they couldn’t be happier.
When the Browns drafted Johnny Manziel in the first round of this year’s draft, they had a feeling he would bring new fans to the team. They just didn’t know how many.
The fans are so excited to see Manziel play for the Browns, that the team has asked the fans to register online to watch and attend training camp. Yes, I said training camp, not a game. The only problem is that their training camp facility only holds a capacity of 5,000 people. The Browns decided to go with this new process so that they don’t end up turning away up to 3,000 fans who just happen to show up. The registration process is so new that the team still hasn’t finished creating the process and is in the process of completing it. The good news is that they are not charging admission fees to watch training camp. If the demand for attending training camp continues to grow, the Browns said they are contemplating moving camp to a college campus.
The Browns can now only expect that the buzz of watching Manziel practice turns into ticket sales for regular season games.
Let the Johnny Football craze continue to rage on.
