Canton Charge is no longer a G League affiliate. Cleveland Cavaliers In fact, it will move north from 2021 to 2022.The team starts the season It will bring more basketball to the Walstein Center in November. Charge plays home games there with a male and female Cleveland basketball team.
The move from Canton to Cleveland took place when charge managers decided to bring their operations closer to Cleveland and more closely aligned with the Cavs and their structure. This is not so surprising as the Indians did the same when they switched the Triple A team from Buffalo many years ago and moved them to Columbus. Mets took over the team for some time before the Blue Jays claimed them as a Triple A team. Hopefully more coverage will follow the price.
The problem with Cleveland is that it’s not a huge media town. So unless it’s a major one, or one of three major sports, you probably won’t find much coverage about that item. The Cleveland sports scene has always struggled to maintain the fourth major attention team, and many have challenged it.
Since the 1990s, Cleveland has Crunch / Force, Indoor soccer team. They left town and soon the league collapsed. Before the team took a break from the league, there was a successful Arena Football League just before the league collapsed.
Of course, there were also WNBA team rockers who fold while in Cleveland. Numerous hockey teams (Lumberjack / Crusaders / Baron /monster) Has been in Cleveland for the past 40 years and hasn’t gained much exposure. Mainly based on minor league statistics. Still.
So while Charge isn’t likely to get a lot of coverage, we hope that getting closer to downtown Cavs and Cleveland will at least increase the coverage of area beat reporters.
