Motor City Weekend

Dates: 11 – 12 Nov, 2017

Greetings Fellow Browns Backers!


On behalf of all the members of the Southeast Michigan Browns Backers I’d like to take this opportunity to join us in Detroit on November 12th when the Brownies come into the Motor City to take on the Lions at Ford Field.

Browns at lions tickets:

Our club has negotiated a group ticket discount for the game with the Lions organization. We are extending this group rate availability to any of your club members who plan on coming in for the game.

The Lions have established an online direct buy for tickets under the SEMBB group rate. Here’s the link for ordering information:

If you have any problems, you can contact the Lions’ ticket representative


Motor City weekend:

Once every eight years or so, the scheduling stars align and a regular season game is booked and the Browns come into Detroit to play the Lions. This gives us here at the Southeast Michigan Browns Backers a chance to host a weekend of fun, fandom and football! (Otherwise known as The Motor City Weekend). I wanted to take this opportunity to invite you and any members of your club to join us for this weekend.


Details are starting to shape up for this year’s Weekend—November 11th-12th.   The very basic schedule will be a Saturday event—a multiple Browns’ alumni autograph session, followed immediately by our version of the Backers’ Bash—a reception, buffet dinner, party and charity raffle and auction. We’re still rounding out our guest list, but I can tell you that we have secured Michael Dean Perry as one of our alumni guests! On Sunday morning we will be renting a small parking lot near both the hotel and Ford Field for a tailgate party! We’re finishing up negotiations with a downtown hotel (very near Ford Field) for special room rates for the weekend and the hosting for our Saturday event.  


Once we’ve finalized all details we’ll be sending out an official invitational flyer.


Please pass this on to any interested club members and please have them respond back to me if they’ll be interested in attending as soon as possible so I can add them to the official invite list.


One final note--Even if you decide not to join us for the party and tailgate, you can certainly take advantage of the group ticket rate.


I hope your and members of your club will join us for this special weekend! Until then, and as always…
