Durham, N.C.-based Cree, Inc. has been named the exclusive Official Lighting Partner of the major NFL football team, the Cleveland Browns. With recent improvements made to the Cree-branded gate at FirstEnergy Stadium, fans will enjoy a better lighting experience with new Cree® LED lighting installed throughout the gate, as well as a new escalator wrap that gives fans bright ideas for saving with LED lighting while having fun on game day.
 
The Cree-branded gate is newly illuminated by Cree LS Series LED surface ambient luminaires, which utilize the company’s TrueWhite® Technology for superior efficiency and color rendering. As a result, fans can now enjoy the game in their true team colors. As part of FirstEnergy Stadium’s $125 million modernization project last year, Cree CXB Series high-bay lighting was installed in concourses adjacent to the Cree LED Lighting gate. The benefits of the CXB Series include improved visibility and energy savings, vastly reduced maintenance costs and improved aesthetics.
 
“The Browns are proud to partner with Cree throughout the year, including their contributions on game day at FirstEnergy Stadium,” said Cleveland Browns Randy Domain, VP/Corporate Sponsorships. “Cree’s commitment to delivering better light and quality products are great enhancements as we continually strive to provide the best fan experience to Browns fans, the best in the league.”
 
 
“Cree and the Cleveland Browns have worked together to deliver a great fan experience,” said David Elien, Senior VP/Lighting at Cree. “As the official lighting partner of the Browns, Cree celebrates this great franchise and their rich tradition of achievement on and off the field.  We are excited
