GUND ARENA TO LIFT PLAYING SURFACE 4-8 INCHES
Published March 9, 1995
"Stung by numerous complaints about bad sightlines" at the new Gund Arena, the Cavaliers have decided to raise the playing floor, according to Bob Dyer of the Akron BEACON JOURNAL. The team hopes this move will enable fans sitting in the lower bowl to see over the heads of the fans sitting in front of them. Cavs President/COO Tom Chestnut would not discuss the specifics, the cost or the timetable other than to say that, "in the best of all possible worlds," a change could be made even before the end of the season. A source close to the team says the plan calls for the raising the floor either four or eight inches (BEACON JOURNAL, 3/8).
