Browns Stadium name change

CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Cleveland Browns and FirstEnergy Corporation have agreed to terms on a stadium naming rights deal, officially changing the name from Cleveland Browns Stadium to FirstEnergy Stadium.

The building has held the same name since its inception in 1999.

As the city of Cleveland owns the stadium, the deal is contingent upon approval from the Cleveland city council.

Once approved, the Browns will become the 23rd NFL team with a stadium rights deal.

FirstEnergy, headquartered in Akron, Ohio, is one of the largest investor-owned electric utilities in the country.

FirstEnergy has been a corporate sponsor of the team since 1999 when the Browns returned to the NFL as an expansion franchise.
