HUMONGOTRON, Quicken Loans Arena’s brand new center-hung scoreboard, is armed with the fan-favorite flaming sabers and a new sound system that provides fans with cutting-edge clarity.

A $140 million reconstruction of the Q arena to modernize it with a glass front, public gathering spaces and dining areas that let you watch the game while you eat.
The Q would remain open during construction, which would finish by 2020, under the plan.
The Q will grow, stretching all the way to Huron Road, taking in the outdoor space from Ontario Street east to East 6th Street. The reconstruction will increase space for dining and bars, fan zones and other gathering spaces by more than 60 percent, to 153,000 square feet.
