Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse (formerly Quicken Loans Arena) is a multi-purpose arena in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. The building is the official home arena of the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association (NBA) as well as other major Ohio sports teams.
Back in 2019, the arena known as Cleveland’s “Q” arena for sports and entertainment underwent a massive renovation to the entire facility that in actuality served as more of a wholesale reinvention. Aside from the arena itself being completely reworked, management knew that a larger arena would also require an updated visitor, fan, and user experience that kept pace with the technology of the times.
The name changed from the well-known “Quicken Loan Arena” aka “The Q,” to the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. This new reimagined arena had more space, more amenities, and a new level of excitement for the city’s beloved sports fan base. An eight-story-high glass atrium greets fans as they enter the facility. Fan destinations and internal “neighborhoods” were added to give the arena a “world of its own” type of vibe, and the overall space had been expanded. The building is not subtle with its use of technology, highlighted by a one-of-a-kind, fully-immersive LED tunnel called the Power Portal. This was indeed the beginning of a new era in Cleveland.
