Quicken Loans Arena is getting a name change.
As first reported by Crain’s Kevin Kleps (and confirmed by cleveland.com), the Cavs’ arena will be renamed the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. The name will officially debut when arena rennovations are completed:

This is the third name in the arena’s history, following its original name — Gund Arena — and Quicken Loans Arena. The name also keeps the arena’s name in line with Dan Gilbert’s businesses.
The event on Tuesday — announced on Monday — coincides with the final day of the 2018-19 Cavs season and a home game against the Charlotte Hornets, which tips-off at 7 p.m.
In addition to Gilbert, Quicken Loans CEO Jay Farner, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, county executive Armond Budish, Cavs CEO Len Komoroski and general manager Koby Altman will be in attendance.
