As we return to enjoying live entertainment, protecting the health and safety of all our guests, staff members and performers remains a top priority.

Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies and systems designed to keep you healthy, safe and comfortable during your visit.

Cavs & Monsters Games

For Cavs and Monsters games, protocols will be consistent with health and safety guidelines put forth by the NBA and NHL/AHL. Currently, wearing a mask is strongly recommended for all fans attending any games, concerts or events at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. No additional protocols are required for Cavs or Monsters games, though, except for the NBA mandate that fans seated within a 15-foot perimeter of the player bench and sitting in the first row around the entire court must show proof of vaccine or a negative COVID test taken 48 hours prior to the game. These fans are also required to be masked at all times.

Despite the protocols and requirements that we have put in place, no precautions can eliminate the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

COVID-19 is highly contagious and there is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any place where people are present. COVID-19 can lead to severe illness and death. While people of all ages and health conditions have been adversely affected by COVID-19, certain people have been identified by public health authorities as having greater risk based on age and underlying medical conditions. Exposure to COVID-19 can result in being subject to quarantine requirements.
