Union Square Browns Backers of NYC Invade London!

Several members of the Union Square Browns Backers made the journey from New York City across the Atlantic to jolly ‘ol London, England for the Cleveland Browns Week 8 game versus the Minnesota Vikings.

Highlights included Browns owner Jimmy Haslem pouring beers behind the bar at the Browns Backers party on Saturday night, spotting Browns legends Hanford Dixon, Josh Cribbs and Jim Brown, and what turned out to be a beautiful day for football at Twickenham stadium (despite the loss).

Check out our photo album featuring the best of our member’s pics from the weekend long festivities and game day.

Browns Backers raffle tickets NYC
Our friends over at the Brooklyn Browns Backers have kicked off their 2nd annual fundraiser, this year benefiting the millions of Puerto Ricans left devastated by Hurricane Maria.

They’re running a raffle, with lots of amazing Cleveland Browns related prizes. The raffle will be held at halftime of the Browns vs Jaguars game on November 19, 2017. Full details below.

Tickets are 2 for $5, or 5 for $10:

  • Tickets can be purchased online at any time. When they see a new payment they’ll fill out the corresponding number of raffle tickets and toss them into a hat.
  • During Browns games at their chapter viewing site, clubhouse Colony 274 (274th Ave, Brooklyn NY 11215)
  • At their BBQ in Prospect Park (near the Bandshell, 2-6pm on November 11th)

You don’t have to be present to win, but it is recommended that if you’re after a specific prize you send a representative to choose and take home your item home. Someone will text or email winners if they aren’t present. Prizes are awarded on a 1st draw, 1st pick basis. Once again… it’s easiest to claim a prize if you’re present.

Lots of Prizes to win:

You can see all 13 prizes by viewing this Facebook photo album. One prize, the Little Browns water bottle, will be completed at the BBQ on 11/11, where members of the 2017 Little Browns flag football team (whom have actually won some games, and are awesome to cheer for) will autograph the bottle.

We’re 100% having a 9am watch party in NYC for the Cleveland Browns’ London game

Cleveland Browns Burning London to the Ground

The Union Square Browns Backers will 100% be hosting our NYC watch party for the October 29th Cleveland Browns game in London. Doors open at 9am for the 9:30am kickoff. We’ll be upstairs at the main bar and have the entire place to ourselves.

Our amazing hosts at Brother Jimmy’s BBQ have put together an exclusive food and festive drink special for the occasion:

  • $25 gets you a breakfast buffet (eggs, tots, bacon, build your own breakfast tacos) and unlimited mimosas, Bloody Marys and Coors Light drafts.

Why are we doing this, you ask? Why wake up so early on a Sunday morning after what will likely be an aggressive Halloween Saturday? Why subject ourselves to yet another embarrassing display from the incompetent gaggle of clowns that are the Cleveland Browns, in what will be yet another loss on their march to an 0-16 season? Because we’re gluttons for punishment and our parents never hugged us as children.

So come join us and your fellow CLE fans as we watch Hue Jackson and Jimmy Haslam bring their factory of sadness dumpster fire across the Atlantic and BURN LONDON TO THE GROUND.

Free shots if you show up in your Halloween costume from the night before.

And if you haven’t already, please take 5 minutes to join our chapter through the Browns Backers website. It’s free and helps us gain recognition among other chapters around the country.
