FirstEnergy Corp., the largest electric utility operator in Pennsylvania, has purchased the naming rights to Cleveland Browns Stadium.

Akron-based FirstEnergy and the football team announced a deal Tuesday to rename it FirstEnergy Stadium. Terms to make the stadium the 23rd of 31 NFL venues with a naming rights agreement weren't disclosed. FirstEnergy operates West Penn Power and Penn Power in the Pittsburgh area, along with coal-fired Bruce Mansfield Plant and nuclear Beaver Valley Power Station in Shippingport.
