The official Browns Backers Worldwide tailgate will be held in the grassy pavilion area by LOT 1 at 805 Stadium Drive (click for map), a half mile walk to the stadium.
If Lot 1 parking sells out, select lots 2, 3, or SP4 which are all are right next to each other along Stadium Drive.
Cash parking in these lots the day of the game is subject to availability. Lots usually open 3 hours before events start.
Price is typically around $20 which is much lower than the $50 parking at AT&T Stadium.
We are told that all or most hotels near the stadium in Arlington are already booked solid so you may need to expand your search beyond the stadium perimeter. Since visiting NFL teams typically stay at the Hilton DFW Lakes Executive Conference Center Hotel in Grapevine, TX, which is about 20 min north of AT&T Stadium in Arlington, we suspect it is likely but as of yet unconfirmed that NFL VIP's and possibly draft candidates will be staying there.
