Whether it be the addition of Mike Holmgren to the team or a new quarterback in town, Cleveland Browns fans attended training camp more often than they have in recent history. The team released this report regarding attendance this year:
• The Browns averaged 2,163 fans for each training camp practice session that was open to the public this year, an increase of 603 fans per practice from 2009. A total of 38,929 fans attended the 18 sessions that were open to the public this year.
• The 2,163 fans per practice is the second-highest figure for training camp since the team officially began recording attendance figures in 2005. In 2008, the Browns averaged 2,235 fans per practice.
• The Browns recorded the two highest single-session totals as 3,673 fans came to the morning practice on the opening of camp on July 31 and 3,630 fans attended the following day. The previous high was 3,605 fans on August 3, 2008.
Hopefully this is a sign of things to come during the regular season games, although winning is often a good way to get attendance up too.
The Browns are still going through training camp, but it is no longer open to the public.
