Downtown Cleveland: More than 100,000 People Expected for Saturday's Games and Events

By Marc Bona, The Plain Dealer

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Cleveland arguably will be the busiest sports city in America on Saturday. All three pro sports venues downtown will host games simultaneously, and when you throw in a variety of other events going on, we can expect as many as 100,000 people downtown at the same time.

That night at the Q, the Cleveland Gladiators host the Arizona Rattlers in ArenaBowl XXVII at 8. The Indians face the Houston Astros at 7:05 next door at Progressive Field, and the Browns play their first home preseason game at 8 against the St. Louis Rams at FirstEnergy Stadium.
