FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland
The Browns & Bengals
A mainstay of American culture, the National Football League has a beloved home in the state of Ohio.
Founded in 1946, the Cleveland Browns are one of the NFL’s eldest franchises, and have the deep history to match.
The Browns, named after legendary Ohio State Buckeyes coach and inaugural Cleveland Browns coach, Paul Brown, play home games at FirstEnergy Stadium in downtown Cleveland, where they frequently take on AFC North divisional rivals the Pittsburgh Steelers the Baltimore Ravens.
The Browns feature several distinct factors, including their unique helmet design, which is void of any traditional logo, and their legendary fan base, the Dawg Pound. These fans travel far and wide from areas along Lake Erie, like Norwalk, Mentor, and Elyria, to become members of the world-famous Dawg Pound.
If you find yourself in northeast Ohio anytime form September through December, you too can become a Dawg Pound Browns fanatic. Just be sure and pack some brown and orange.
However, if you’ll be in southern Ohio, you might want to keep your Browns jersey tucked away, as you’ll be in Bengals country.
Yes, one of only four states with more than one NFL team, Ohio is also home to the Cincinnati Bengals. Clad in tiger stripes, the Bengals are fierce in-state rivals with the Cleveland Browns, as they both compete in the rough and tough AFC North division.
Founded in 1968, the Bengals represent the Cincinnati metro area, including suburbs like Harrison, Oxford, and Mason. Fans continually pack the stands at Paul Brown Stadium in downtown Cincy, affectionately chanting the phrase “Who Dey” as the Bengals take on all comers.
On game day, be sure to show up early for some famous Cincinnati chili and tailgating outside Paul Brown Stadium.
