Browns to unveil plans for FirstEnergy Stadium during news conference this afternoon

The Browns will unveil their plans for FirstEnergy Stadium during a news conference at the stadium at about 2:15 p.m. today, the team announced this morning.

The Browns have been working on renovation plans for FirstEnergy Stadium, and the NFL approved $62.5 million in funding for such improvements in October when the owners met in Washington.

Browns CEO Joe Banner said in July that the renovation project, which could cost about $120 million, would likely unfold in two phases during the next two offseasons.

A year ago, Banner indicated the installation of new scoreboards and sound systems were part of the plan.

“Clearly in the area of technology as it relates to scoreboards and sound systems, things have advanced so far from when these systems came from,” Banner said. “I don’t want to prejudge anything, but it’s inconceivable we won’t be making some very dramatic changes there.”

FirstEnergy Stadium, formerly known as Cleveland Browns Stadium, opened in 1999 and seats more than 73,200.
