The powers-that-be at the Southern California Browns Backers Association would like to thank all the dedicated Backers that came out to all our viewing sites this past season. It might not have been the prettiest of seasons, but it’s still Cleveland Browns football and we’ll always support it.
We won’t be updating the site as much during the off-season, so be sure to follow us on Facebook for all your latest SCBBA news.
And for those looking for some brighter news to end the season, the Browns now hold the Nos. 4 and 22 overall picks in April’s draft. So get pumped for that!
The Baltimore Ravens may have bested the Cleveland Browns in Week 13 of the NFL season, but the LA Browns Backers were able to take out their frustration in the form of a halftime beat-down of an Art Modell piñata. Good times were had by all (except for the piñata).
Several dozen SCBBA members made the trek up north this past Sunday for a Browns battle by the Bay. Even though the weather was beautiful, the Browns couldn’t pull off a victory against the first-place 49ers and their stingy defense.
Check out the photo gallery below for some game-day shots from our members.

Planning on heading up north to watch the Browns tangle with the San Francisco 49ers on October 30th? Here’s everything you need to know:
Tickets: Call the San Francisco 49er rep Paul Suchomel, directly 415-347-3585. Ask to purchase tickets in Browns Backers sections. [Sections 59, 57, 55, etc and ask for the Browns Backers Group rate price.] The 49ers will handle your ticket purchase. Paul just noted that he expects a sell out soon.
Saturday Night Party: The Bay Area Browns Backers will host a Browns Backers Party Oct 29th at the Hotel Sofitel from 6:00 pm on. Eric Metcalf & Kevin Mack will sign autographs, plus Browns Backers Global supplied raffle prizes. Open to all Browns fans & guests.
Sofitel: Stay After the Party: We have arranged a great rate the Saturday before the game at $89 or $110 with breakfast for two at the super fine Hotel Sofitel. Make reservations by calling and ask for the In-House reservation desk at the Sofitel San Francisco Bay at (650) 598-9000. Refer to “Browns Backers” group rate.
Browns Backers TAILGATE: Look for the three “Quality Assurance” motor coaches – our bus company in the bus tailgate area. We will be there about 11:25 a.m. in route from the Sofitel. Join us at the buses!
