Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert has bought the Cleveland Gladiators franchise of the Arena Football League.

The Gladiators were and instant hint with fans in the Lake Erie city early in their formative days, but they have been struggling to get fans into Quicken Loans Arena in the past few years.

Their training camp starts in February.

The ownership group led by Gilbert, purchased the team from Jim Ferraro, an attorney who has owned the team since 2000.

Ferraro took the franchise to Las Vegas in 2002 and moved it to Cleveland in 2007. Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar is a part owner and advisor.
