Tens of thousands of people are expected to be in downtown Cleveland Tuesday night, hoping to “be a part of history.”
“The city’s going to be in an uproar tomorrow we got the Indians playing, we got the Cavs playing next door, it’s just great for Cleveland,” said Cleveland fan Tony Jones.
Jones said despite the inevitably heavy traffic, there’s no way he would miss the chance to experience the energy and crowds of two major Cleveland sports events.
The City of Cleveland is planning for tens of thousands of people. The capacity for the Quicken Loans Arena is about 20,500, Progressive Field holds more than 35,000 people and the city is planning on many more people overflowing into downtown to be a part of the festivities.
Doors open at 5 pm for the Cavs, and 5:30 pm for the Indians. The city and the teams recommend getting to the events early if possible.
Here are the important road closures released from the city:
