Welcome to FirstEnergy Stadium!

Located right on the shore of Lake Erie, FirstEnergy Stadium embodies the tough and rugged spirit of the city of Cleveland. It has long been the home of the National Football League's Cleveland Browns and also plays host to many other sporting events and concerts.

The site was originally the home of Cleveland Stadium from 1931 to 1996, but in 1995 the Brown's owner threatened to move the team to Baltimore. In less than a day, the city rallied behind the team and voted to approve extensions on taxes to fund the construction of a new stadium which would keep their beloved Browns at home in Cleveland. The new stadium was constructed by the 1999 season and has continued to be the Brown's home ever since. It is the 2nd largest stadium in Ohio (behind only the "Ohio Stadium" in Columbus) with a capacity of roughly 68,000.

The Brown's fanbase is known as one of the most devoted and loyal in the league, earning them the nickname "The Dawg Pound".

Our competition will be held in the Moen Lake Club which includes:
- A great panoramic view over Lake Erie
- Over 22,000 square feet of space
- Quality food vendor options
- Full in-room restrooms
- Access to a limited section of the outdoor seating bowl

We hope that you join us for a fun and memorable competition at FirstEnergy Stadium!
