Cleveland Browns fans in southwest Ohio might soon be able to see their favorite NFL team train without having to drive nearly as far.
The Columbus Dispatch reported Thursday morning Columbus is working with the Browns on funding for a new recreation center that could host their summer training camp in Ohio’s capital city and various other activities the rest of the year.
Columbus would pony up an estimated $15-17 million for the project while Franklin County kicks in $5 million and the team pays another $5 million.
Forbes estimates the Browns franchise is worth $1.85 billion with revenues of $347 million last year.
The Browns currently train in Berea, a suburb of Cleveland. They have held public practice events in Columbus at Ohio Stadium the past two years.
