The Cleveland Browns and FirstEnergy Corp. announced a long-term partnership on Tuesday in which the team's venue will be called FirstEnergy Stadium. Since it was completed in 1999, the Browns home field has been known as Cleveland Browns Stadium. Terms of the naming-rights agreement were not disclosed. The deal is contingent upon approval from Cleveland City Council. Once approved, the Cleveland stadium will become the 23rd of 31 NFL venues to have entered into a naming-rights agreement. As part of the naming-rights agreement, FirstEnergy becomes the official energy partner of the Cleveland Browns. In addition, the partnership consists of both interior and exterior stadium signage, use of Browns trademarks, event sponsorships, as well as a full complement of media assets, including TV, radio, print and digital. "This is a great day for all of us and it builds on the momentum we have experienced as we enter into a new era of Cleveland Browns Football," said Browns owner Jimmy Haslam.
