It is the home of the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers, the AHL's Lake Erie Monsters and the AFL's Cleveland Gladiators. Also known as The Q, the arena is located in downtown Cleveland and replaced the Richfield Coliseum, which was located between Cleveland and Akron.
The Q, which first opened in October of 1994, was formerly known as the Gund Arena. It was named after a former Cleveland Cavalier owner, Gordon Gund.
