Statement from Cleveland City Council on Cleveland Browns Stadium
Apr 13, 2023
Today, the Cleveland Browns announced they plan to remove the First Energy name from our municipal stadium for the upcoming season. Cleveland City Council has supported a name change for the stadium for nearly a year. Councilman Brian Kazy (Ward 16) introduced Resolution 541-2022 in May 2022, urging the Cleveland Browns to remove the name. Council overwhelmingly approved the resolution in June 2022. Council is pleased to hear of the name change and that the Cleveland Browns are restoring the original name of Cleveland Browns Stadium for the upcoming season. Clevelanders own the stadium, and it is only fitting to call it by a name of which we can all be proud.
