FirstEnergy Stadium opened in September 1999 on the grounds of the former Municipal Stadium, where the original Browns played until they were relocated after the 1995 season to Baltimore to become the Ravens.
In 2010, the Browns honored their history by placing 16 Pro Football Hall of Famers -- including Paul Brown, Jim Brown, Otto Graham and Marion Motley -- in the Ring of Honor.
Called a crown jewel of the North Coast Harbor, FirstEnergy Stadium is located next to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame + Museum and the Great Lakes Science Center. The columns, beams and notches in its seating bowl make for a distinctive architectural design. In addition to the 8,754 club seats and 147 luxury suites, there are also 10,644 bleacher seats in the Dawg Pound.
