The Cavs will be sinking millions in renovations into the event center as well.

This won’t be the first sporting event held at Public Auditorium. Competitions there go back as far as 1936, when legendary boxer Joe Louis defeated Eddie Simms.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Charge and their fans to Public Auditorium,” Mayor Justin Bibb said in a statement. “This move underscores our commitment to leveraging incredible historic assets like Public Auditorium and bringing more people to downtown Cleveland. We look forward to a great season and a successful partnership.”

The Charge finished 15-19 this past season with a roster that featured the likes of rookie forwards Pete Nance and Emoni Bates, as well as forward Isaiah Mobley — all of whom also spent time with the Cavs.

“We are extremely excited for the new home arena of the Cleveland Charge to be at the historic Public Auditorium in the heart of downtown Cleveland,” said Mike Ostrowski, President of Franchise Properties (Charge and the AHL’s Cleveland Monsters) for Rock Entertainment Group. “Our move to Cleveland three years ago positioned us for what turned out to be three successful seasons at the Wolstein Center. We now look forward to our franchise’s next chapter and the continued growth of the Charge at this historic, city-owned venue. We can’t wait for next season.”

The Charge Summer Tour tips off June 9 at the Crocker Park Block Party in Westlake.
