Located on the shore of Lake Erie, FirstEnergy Stadium is home to the Cleveland Browns. Originally called "Cleveland Browns' Stadium," it was built in 1999, taking the place of the Cleveland Municipal Stadium that was the longtime home of both the Cleveland Browns and the Cleveland Indians. In 2013, thanks to an equitable partnership between Browns' owner, Jimmy Haslam, and Tony Alexander, President and CEO of FirstEnergy, the stadium was renovated and completely modernized. The improvements included a new sound system, video boards, increased seating in the lower bowl, extra escalators to improve guest access and connectivity with stadium-wide Wi-Fi. Today, the stadium not only hosts the Cleveland Browns, but it offers many other popular events as well. These include high school and collegiate football games, concerts featuring top talent like U2, international soccer games like CONCACAF Gold Cup and much more. The best FirstEnergy Stadium tickets are available at StubHub.
