FirstEnergy No More: Now It's "Cleveland Browns Stadium" Featured

Written by

FirstEnergy Corp. and the Cleveland Browns have announced that they have reached an amicable decision to end their stadium naming rights agreement, but they did not release any further details on the terms and conditions of their agreement.

In a release, FirstEnergy Interim President and CEO, John Somerhalter said "Together with the Browns, we have worked to enrich our communities while increasing awareness of FirstEnergy as an energy leader. Since we signed this agreement 10 years ago, our priorities have shifted as the company evolved from a competitive energy supplier to a fully regulated utility, and as a result, our corporate initiatives must also evolve. Like the rest of northeast Ohio, we remain passionate Browns fans and will cheer them on in upcoming seasons. We also look forward to maintaining our deep relationships with civic, arts and other organizations to bring good energy to our communities."

Dave Jenkins, Haslam Sports Group COO said "We've had a great association with FirstEnergy for more than two decades, and we appreciate this partnership and what it has created for our team and the broader northeast Ohio community. We reached this amicable agreement that is consistent with the productive relationship we have always enjoyed, and we wish FirstEnergy success with their future initiatives. Our home stadium will return to its former name, Cleveland Browns Stadium."
