    History

    Cleveland Browns Stadium sits on the former site of the Cleveland Municipal Stadium located at North Coast Harbor in Cleveland, Ohio and is the home of the Cleveland Browns. In 1995, owner Art Modell announced he was moving the Cleveland Browns to Baltimore (eventually becoming the Baltimore Ravens). In late 1995 to early 1996, Major Michael White reached an agreement with the NFL that if a new stadium was built to their requirements, Cleveland would be awarded an expansion team for the 1999-2000 season and the league would contribute $43 million towards the stadium. The City Planning Commission selected lakefront site occupied by Cleveland Municipal Stadium as the site where the new arena would be built in April 1996. Construction began in 1997 and opened on September 12, 1999. New owner Al Lerner decided to do without selling the naming rights to the new stadium to a corporation and officially named it the Cleveland Browns Stadium. Naming rights were sold to the four main entrances to the stadium instead (Cleveland Clinic Sports Health Gate located in the southwest corner, National City Gate located in the southeast corner, Steris Gate located in the northeast corner, and FirstEnergy Gate, located in the northwest corner of the stadium). Cleveland Browns Stadium is the birthplace of the Dawg Pound, a section of bleacher seats occupied by only the most passionate football fans. The Dawg Pound is in the same location as in the old stadium, but it has expanded to two levels of bleachers instead of one. The 73,000 seat stadium boasts the largest and most advanced video screens of any NFL stadium.
