The NFL , the country’s most popular league with the most diehard fans still has teams that are so bad that their teams struggling filling the massive stadiums in which the games are played in. The Browns find themselves as one of those teams, finishing as one of the worst on the field and ranked 28th out of 32 teams in total ticket sales. Last on that list? The St. Louis Rams, who of course moved to Los Angeles this offseason.

In a last-ditch effort to get butts in the seats, the Browns have resorted to the popular group-discount rate coupon site, Groupon. The franchise is struggling to sell tickets directly to fans, so they’re dishing out batches to second-party vendors to get off their hands at a discounted rate to sell themselves.

In a world where it costs an arm and a leg to attend a game with your family, mind you the sky-high ridiculous prices of food if you want to eat or drink during that game, you can be at a Cleveland Browns game for only $19.


The fine print on the deal notes that this is not operated directly through the Browns, but rather via an “independently owned and operated secondary market ticket company not affiliated with the Cleveland Browns or FirstEnergy Stadium.”


The listing goes on to read as follows:
