BRITISH BULLDAWGS BROWNS BACKERS
Chapter 285 of the official Cleveland Browns Backers Worldwide fan club
We are the British Bulldawgs Browns Backers club, serving Cleveland Browns fans in the UK. Welcome to the page!
We *normally* meet up weekly during the season at the Hippodrome Casino on Leicester Square in London, England. We are hoping to again this year as Covid-19 restrictions loosen, but check back in each week to see what our plans are ahead of travelling to see us.
Game times are usually 6pm on Sundays (UK time) but vary depending on the Browns schedule. See the full schedule posted below and know we are 5 hours ahead of Eastern Standard time (apart from 31st October when we are only 4 hours ahead)

We look forward to meeting you! GO BROWNS!
Our club has always been free to join, and it still will be. However we are going to be introducing a 'Premium membership' in August. For a small fee that will go towards help running the club and make it less London-centric, you will receive some free goodies from the Browns, a Limited Edition gift and entry to raffles. More info coming next month! In the meantime, be sure to sign up as an official Browns Backer (click here) and don't forget to link your membership to the British Bulldawgs so you receive our emails.
Come join us!

Cleveland Browns 2021 Season
We are hoping to be back at the Hippodrome Casino in London this year to watch games in person again. We are waiting on confirmation from the casino once they know if they will be hosting the NFL again this year. Please stay tuned for more info.
Last year we raised £885 (over $1000) with our virtual Swear Jar for the UK charity Shelter. Please check back for details of our 2021 fundraising plans. You can still donate to Shelter by clicking the link

Meet the Bulldawgs Committee
Kelly Burgess Taylor
Born and raised a Browns fan in Cleveland, Ohio, Kelly moved London in 2003. One of the first things she did was join the local Browns Backers community as a way to meet people. Since then Kelly has helped to grow the club by adding it to Facebook and Twitter, and then became the President in 2018. Kelly's highlight of the Browns Backers club was when the team came to London in 2017 and we had a packed Admiralty Pub filled with Browns fans!
Hey I'm Dan, I've been with the backers for 4 years now after moving to London (Then escaping to NYC and back!) I've been a Browns fan for 11 years after playing American football at University! I've also coached American football as the Defensive Coordinator of the QMBL Vipers. Looking forward to being on the committee and making this the number 1 Backers group!
I live just outside Worcester. There must be Browns fans around here, I met a few on the train en route to the game at Twickenham. I think my NFL journey began like many British fans. Channel 4 in the 1980s. Why Cleveland? I started as a curious neutral but it was 'The Drive' that hooked me. Something very honest and blue collar about that stadium. I have never even been to the States but I feel connected to the Browns. Can't explain it! As a Birmingham City FC supporter I know all about success starvation.
I have followed the Browns since only 2016 , the 1-15 season . My son and I have always liked American football and being Millwall supporters wanted to follow a team which had the same sort of fan base , loyal , blue collar and very passionate . The fact that the Browns weren’t very good fitted into what we were used to lol . It has been a real rollercoaster ever since ....and we have loved it
