The Cleveland Cavaliers have announced sponsors for main entrances at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, part of multi-year partnerships with Sherwin-Williams and Cleveland-Cliffs. Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse is currently closed for renovations, and will reopen in September.
The Sherwin-Williams Entrance and the Cleveland-Cliffs Entrance will be the marquee north entry points into the new expansive 43,530 square foot enclosed glass atrium of Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.
The new Sherwin-Williams Entrance will be located on the northwest side of the FieldHouse atrium near the intersection of Huron Rd. and Ontario St. and directly across from their global headquarters, while the new Cleveland-Cliffs Entrance will be located on the northeast end of the FieldHouse near Huron Rd. and E. 6th St. The entrances will welcome fans into a new immersive experience that features creative storytelling flex walls, interactive technology and more in an engaging gathering space.
