BEREA, Ohio -- Are you ready for some football? 

Browns fans are three days away from getting their first look at the 2012 Cleveland Browns, so what should you know if you're heading to Berea to see the team?

They are the most frequently asked questions this time of the year: I want to go see the Browns in Berea for training camp, where do I park? How do I get in? Is the event free?  Here are the answers to those questions.

Crews were busy on Wednesday afternoon putting the finishing touches around the city as the Cleveland Browns get set for training camp. If you plan on taking in a practice or two at the Browns Training Facility, public parking is free and available at the George Finnie Stadium Lot, located on the Baldwin Wallace University campus.

The parking lot sits right along Beech Street. That's the road fans walk down to get into the Browns Practice Facility. Practices are free and you do not need a ticket to get inside the gates. Fans are allowed to bring soft-sided lunch coolers and lawn chairs into the facility but alcohol is not permitted.

Now that we are just a few days away from the public getting its first look at the new look Browns, you better believe there is plenty of excitement.

"The fans are looking forward to the Browns having a good season. They have Weeden, Trent Richardson, supposed to be a great running back," said Browns fan Dave Mullins.

The two players Browns fans are looking forward to seeing most are the third and 22nd overall pick in April's NFL Draft.

"I want to see how good he is, he looks like a beast and in college he was doing good so I think he could be a good asset for the Browns," said fan Chris Perez.

Despite all the excitement and all the new additions, Browns fans aren't ready to start planning a parade through downtown Cleveland.

"They have a tough schedule, one of the hardest schedules in the league, hopefully they win three games," chuckled Mullins.

"I always have hope for the Browns but hopefully they can pull something off this year," added Perez

The first training camp practice open to the public is Saturday at 8:45 am. Gates will open at 7:45 am.
