No plans yet, but take a look at:

[url="http://prod.static.browns.clubs.nfl.com/assets/docs/stadium/12_StadiumAreaParking_Map.pdf"]http://prod.static.b...Parking_Map.pdf[/url]

Compare that to this:

[url="https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Cleveland+Browns+Stadium,+Alfred+Lerner+Way,+Cleveland,+OH&hl=en&ll=41.504206,-81.699035&spn=0.014029,0.033023&sll=40.365277,-82.669252&sspn=7.306109,16.907959&oq=cleveland+browns&hq=Cleveland+Browns+Stadium,&hnear=Alfred+Lerner+Way,+Cleveland,+Cuyahoga,+Ohio&t=m&z=16"]https://maps.google...., Ohio&t=m&z=16[/url]


A few years ago, the largest Bills contingent was in the yellow lots on the NW part of the map - specifically, the inlet corner above the "y" in "Walkway".  Kenny (Pinto Ron) and his crew were in this area, which is probably the main reason why Bills fans congregated here.

You'll hear people talk about the "Muni Lot" (Municipal Lot), which I believe is east the Southeast Gate, but it seems like that's not an ideal place to tailgate anymore:

Our plans are still up in the air - my gf and I are going with a group of Browns fans, so I'm not necessarily steering the ship.  I WILL be flying a Bills flag, regardless of where we are though.


Edit - no clue why my links aren't working.  Copy/paste

Not sure why URLs aren't working either.

When travelling to away games I basically go where Kenny goes - there's usually a party around that guy.

His streak is currently 295 straight games so I'm quite sure he'll be at this one too.

Sorry. Dock 20

Thanks, not sure what time I'll pull in but I'll look for Bills gear. I'm in section 111, anyone close?

Stick this: "41.50372436285402,-81.7077898979187" in mapquest for directions to dock 20.

Is this BuffaloMike the lawyer?

You will want to get down there early.  There's not a whole lot of parking for a 72,000 seat stadium and the lots fill up quick.  The parking here in Cleveland is nothing like the Ralph, where you have a series of lots and lawns.  Of course, you guys are 15 miles outside your downtown area.

The two for Bills fans to avoid are probably the Muni Lot (southeast of the stadium and across East 9th Street) and what we call "the Pit" which is close to the stadium, down the hill from West 3rd.  The Pit is usually not a good visitors lot.  I mention the Muni Lot because the cops have really been cracking down on the drinking (so they say).
