Cleveland Browns offering fans chance to call plays

30

The Cleveland Browns are offering two lucky fans the opportunity to help script plays in an NFL preseason game.

As part of the ‘All In Challenge’ – a digital fundraiser helping to feed those in need amid the coronavirus pandemic – the Browns are auctioning off the chance for two people to team up with head coach Kevin Stefanski to design the first 15 offensive plays of a preseason fixture.

One winner will be determined in an auction, with the other chosen via a raffle – the deal also including a team dinner, team meeting, leading the Browns out of the tunnel and tossing the coin on the field.

“Giving back is a core component of who we are as an organisation,” Stefanski said in a statement. “With the global pandemic, it’s really important we step up when there are others in need.

“Just look around at the frontline workers, the health care workers. They’re stepping up right now, they’re working tirelessly, they’re working courageously and it’s really inspired our organisation to join the All In Challenge.”

On Thursday, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft auctioned off his personal Super Bowl Li ring for $1.025million.

The ‘All In Challenge’ has raised more than $45.8m, according to its website.
