FirstEnergy Purchases Naming Rights to Cleveland Browns Stadium

The times in Cleveland are a-changin’. Cleveland Browns Stadium, free of a corporate name since the team’s return in 1999, will be getting a new name in 2013. 

It was reported on Monday that FirstEnergy Corp. purchased the naming rights to the stadium, and while the exactly dollar amount is not yet known, it’s going to net owner Jimmy Haslam III and the Cleveland Browns many millions of dollars.

The Browns were one of the few franchises left without a corporate stadium name, but Haslam has made it clear from the get-go that he was opening to changing the name of the stadium.

It’s (hopefully) a new era in Cleveland Browns football, so maybe a name change is the right way to go.

    Ugh. Hate it. I liked it being CBS, just like I like KC playing at “Arrowhead.” These corporate names ruin it.

    I’d vote for “Browns First Energy Stadium”, dropping the word Cleveland.
