Cleveland to Host 2022 NBA All Star Game

Cleveland will host the 2022 NBA All-Star game, the league announced on Thursday. The 71st All-Star Game will be played at the Quicken Loans Arena when the NBA will celebrate its 75th anniversary.

The Cavaliers have previously hosted the NBA All-Star game twice. In 1997, when the league celebrated its 50th an anniversary, and in 1981.

The Thursday announcement was made by NBA commissioner at a press conference at Quicken Loans Arena. He was joined by Cavaliers Chairman Dan Gilbert and Cavaliers and Quicken Loans Arena CEO Len Komoroski.

Also present were Mayor Frank G. Jackson, Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish and U.S. Congresswoman Marcia Fudge.

“Cleveland is a passionate sports city with a proven track record of hosting large-scale, global events,” said Silver.

“We thank Dan Gilbert, Len Komoroski and the civic leaders for their commitment. We look forward to a weeklong celebration of our game.”

The Quicken Loans Arena is currently undergoing large-scale renovations, which will be completed by 2022.

“We are proud to host NBA All-Star weekend in Cleveland in 2022,” said Gilbert.

“We have been working with the NBA, the City of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County to deliver this iconic event to Northeast Ohio for the last couple of years.  The transformation and new state-of-the-art Quicken Loans Arena was an important factor in the NBA’s decision to choose Cleveland for this exciting classic broadcast across the globe. The world will get to see the modern Cleveland and all of its diversity, innovation and promise for the future.”

“Along with the excitement and appreciation for the NBA selecting Cleveland and Quicken Loans Arena to host NBA All-Star 2022, we want to extend a big ‘thanks’ to our local partners at Destination Cleveland and the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, and our City, County and Civic leaders,” said Komoroski.

“Their support and energy to always demonstrate what we as a community do best is at the core of bringing these major events to our city.  We have a great partnership that will deliver an experience fitting for the NBA All-Star global spotlight. We thank the NBA for their confidence in this collective group, and we will put forth the focus and commitment to ensure that the players, fans, corporate partners, media and all who visit have an extraordinary experience in Cleveland and at the transformed Q in 2022.”
