Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, the home of the Cavaliers and Monsters, announced on Tuesday morning that they are implementing all-gender restrooms at the area for fans.
The all-gender restrooms are located near Portals 29-30 on the lower Street Level concourse, adjacent to the Power Portal, and near Portals 58-59 on the FirstEnergy Loudville upper level concourse next to the Overlook Bar.
The area, which has been the home of the Cavs since it opened in 1994, released a statement regarding the addition of the restrooms to the concourse.
“The new gender-inclusive restrooms will provide comfortable and convenient restroom access to transgender and gender non-conforming guests, as well as any guest who may require the assistance of a caregiver, parent or child of a different gender.
“As part of the extensive, ongoing commitment of the Cavs, Monsters and Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse organization to maintain and foster an inclusive environment that is welcoming to everyone, two restrooms at the FieldHouse have been permanently converted into all-gender facilities in order to increase safe and appropriate accommodations for all visitors.”
Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse houses 19,432 people in its basketball configuration and up to 18,926 for ice hockey.
Right now 10% of fans are allowed to be at the Fieldhouse for games for both the Cavs and Monsters, which is roughly 2,000 fans.
