Wolstein Center

The Bert L. & Iris S. Wolstein Convocation Center (more commonly known as the Wolstein Center) is an indoor arena located in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. It is home to the Cleveland State University men's and women's basketball teams and the former home of the Cleveland Force of the NPSL and MISL. It has also hosted numerous concerts, conferences and has served as a site for NCAA men's basketball tournament games.

Completed on November 1, 1991 at a cost of $55 million, it was the largest university-owned arena in Ohio until Value City Arena at Ohio State University was completed. The arena seats 13,610 for basketball, and (with additional floor seating) can hold 15,000 for concerts and wrestling.

Originally named the CSU Convocation Center, the building was renamed to The Bert L. & Iris S. Wolstein Convocation Center on January 21, 2005, though it still remains popularly known as the "Convo" Center.

It hosted the 1992 Mid-Continent Conference men's basketball tournament and the 2002 Horizon League men's basketball tournament.
