The Cleveland Browns are a National Football League franchise. They are part of the American Football Conference and play in the North division. The team was formed on 1946 by owner Arthur McBride. McBride held a newspaper contest to pick out the name for the team. The winning name for the team, the "Browns", was based on the name of popular Cleveland coach Paul Brown.

After the 1995 season, owner Art Modell decided to move the team to Baltimore for financial reasons, even though the team had an extremely loyal following in Cleveland and had sold out every home game for the previous 20 years. Cleveland was later awarded an expansion team that began playing in 1999. In a unique move, the new team was allowed to retain the team name, logos, and history of the Browns, while the original team that relocated started fresh as the Baltimore Ravens.
