Mayor Frank Jackson Releases Statement on Sale of Browns

Posted by

After Randy Lerner addressed rumors and confirmed that he was in negotiations to sell the team, Mayor Frank Jackson released a statement reaffirming fans that the Browns will be in Cleveland for the very near future.

“The Cleveland Browns have some of the most loyal and passionate fans which have helped make it one of the most valuable sports franchises in the world. The city took precautionary measures to ensure that fans would be able to cheer on the Browns at Cleveland Browns Stadium for years to come.

“The 30-year lease to the Cleveland Browns commenced in 1999 and continues to 2029. This lease, like the prior Municipal Stadium lease for which the City of Cleveland successfully obtained an injunction in 1995, requires the Browns to play all their regular season and playoff home games in the Cleveland Browns Stadium. If this requirement is not honored the city has legal options that could be pursued if necessary.”
