Charlotte NC

Sensational Sports and Recreation

 

With the NFL's Carolina Panthers and the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets calling Charlotte home, this city is the pinnacle for professional sports as well as recreation and tourism. Whether it is a mountain bike ride along a trail or world-class golf at the Wells Fargo Championship, 50 laps in the MAC pool or 600 laps at Charlotte Motor Speedway, there is something for everyone. Charlotte spectators can cheer the home team in just about any sport and enjoy the city’s many beautiful parks, specialized facilities, annual festivals and other community events.

 

The city’s mild climate makes it perfect for outdoor activities and competitive events most of the year. Charlotte hosts many foot races (5K and 10K) annually, and a marathon has been run every year in Charlotte since 1977. For those needing variety in their competitive workouts, Mecklenburg County is home to three major triathlons, which attract more than 1,750 participants each year.

 

MORE THAN 72,000

FANS REGULARLY ATTEND PANTHERS HOME GAMES

 

The Catawba River and its system of man-made lakes provide many activities for water lovers. The river is home to the new U.S. National Whitewater Center, which is an official U.S. Olympic Training Site. Located just 30 minutes north of the city, Lake Norman has 520 miles of shoreline and is the state’s largest man-made lake. Sailing, wind surfing, boating and fishing are just a few of the activities to be enjoyed on this 34-mile long lake.

 

Spectacular Spectator Sports

Charlotte is a national sports hub, home to NFL, NBA, NASCAR, AAA baseball, MLL (lacrosse), USL (soccer) and an NHL/AHL affiliate.

 

NFL — The Carolina Panthers    www.panthers.com

Bank of America Stadium, in downtown Charlotte, has 73,778 seats and had the eighth highest attendance of all NFL teams for the 2013 season. The $187 million state-of-the-art facility, designed specifically with football in mind, gives every spectator a clear view of the playing field. This team began when NFL owners unanimously selected Carolina as the 29th NFL franchise on Oct. 26, 1993. Just 10 years later in 2003, the Panthers played in Super Bowl XXXVIII against the New England Patriots. In 2013, the Panthers finished 12-4 and clinched their third NFC South division championship in just 19 seasons as a franchise. In 2014, the Panthers 20th season, they made the playoffs again and are the only team since the Panthers joined the NFL  to repeat back to back as the NFC South Division Champions.

 

NASCAR — Stock Car Racing    www.charlottemotorspeedway.com     www.nascarhall.com

Charlotte is the “pit stop” for all things NASCAR and was chosen as the home of the new NASCAR Hall of Fame and museum in 2006. The $195 million facility opened in 2010 and is located in the heart of downtown Charlotte.

Charlotte Motor Speedway hosts three series of racing:

Sprint Cup Series: NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race, Coca-Cola 600 and Bank of America 500.

Nationwide Series: Dollar General 300 and History 300.

Camping  World  Truck  Series:  North  Carolina Education Lottery 200.

 

The Coca-Cola 600 has the second-largest attendance of ALL sporting events in the nation.

 

Hockey — The Charlotte Checkers    www.gocheckers.com

In 2010, the old ECHL Charlotte Checkers Ice Hockey Team became a member of the Western Conference of the American Hockey League. The team is the AHL affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes of the NHL. The new Checkers played their first home game in the Time Warner Cable Arena on October 15, 2010, in front of 12,512 spectators. This attendance set a record for a hockey game in Charlotte, and each year the record continues to break with 12,933 fans in 2011 and 13,102 in attendance in 2012.

 

NBA — The Charlotte Hornets    www.hornets.com

When the Charlotte Hornets relocated from Charlotte to New Orleans, the NBA promised Charlotte a new team. Black Entertainment Television founder Robert Johnson was awarded the franchise in 2004, making  him the first majority African-American owner in U.S. professional sports. The Charlotte Bobcats began playing in the Time Warner Cable Arena, a new $260 million arena built in the center city specifically for the NBA. In 2010, Michael Jordan announced he was buying the majority ownership of the team. In 2014, the team became the Charlotte Hornets again.

The Time Warner Cable Arena is also used for the Charlotte Checkers (NHL/AHL affiliate) as well as for concerts and other major events such as the Democratic National Convention in 2012.

 

Baseball — The Charlotte Knights    www.charlotteknights.com

The Charlotte Knights are the Chicago White Sox’s AAA affiliate, so watching a game in Charlotte is just one step below major league. The Charlotte Knights made it to the International League Championship Series in their 2012 season. Games are held at BB&T Ballpark in uptown Charlotte, a new $54 million stadium that brought baseball back to the city of Charlotte. The 10,000-seat facility opened in April 2014 just in time for the 2014 season.

 

Lacrosse – Charlotte Hounds    www.charlottehounds.com

Major League Lacrosse expanded into Charlotte for the 2012 season. The Charlotte Hounds are part of an eight-team league and play home games at American Legion Memorial Stadium in uptown Charlotte. In their second season, the Hounds came in second place in the MLL championship game against the Chesapeake Bayhawks.

 

Golf — The Wells Fargo Championship    www.wellsfargochampionship.com

Golf lovers are fortunate to have the PGA’s Wells Fargo Championship played in Charlotte each year during the first week in May. The Wells Fargo Championship is one of the top events on the PGA TOUR, where such prestigious players as Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk and Rory McIlroy compete at Charlotte’s Quail Hollow Club. The championship has raised more than $16 million for charity. The Quail Hollow Club will also host the 99th PGA Championship in 2017.

 

In addition, Augusta National is not too far away for Masters Tournament enthusiasts. Nor is the Verizon Heritage at Harbour Town Links in Hilton Head.

 

Soccer — Charlotte Eagles and Lady Eagles    www.charlotteeagles.com

College Basketball — The CIAA Tournament    www.ciaatournament.org

The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) moved its tournament to Charlotte in 2006. Since then it has called Charlotte home. In 2011, the CIAA Tournament set attendance records by drawing more than 190,000 fans during the week-long event. The tournament is made up of 10 historically Black colleges situated on the East Coast, and the tournament’s goal is to raise money for CIAA scholarship funds. The CIAA is more than a basketball tournament – it also features various entertainment and well-known celebrities.

 

First-Class Tourism Facilities

U.S. National Whitewater Center    www.usnwc.org

The U.S. National Whitewater Center (USNWC) is an outdoor adventure center along the Catawba River that provides the world’s most unique outdoor recreation and environmental learning experience. In 2008 and 2012, it hosted the U.S. Olympic Trials and Canadian Olympic Trials for canoe slalom. The USNWC is just 15 minutes from downtown Charlotte. Since its opening, Olympic-caliber athletes, weekend warriors and casual observers have been able to experience this world class sports and training center. The facility includes hiking and mountain biking trails, eco trekking, a high ropes course, a 57-foot climbing tower, a zip line, and flat and whitewater kayaking.

Cuisine and Culture is Always on the Calendar

Charlotteans love to socialize and celebrate; as a result, the community calendar is full of events (charlottesgotalot.com). These include Speed Street, a huge outdoor festival held downtown in conjunction with NASCAR’s Coca-Cola 600 race. The Carolina Renaissance Festival and the Loch Norman Highland Games are hosted in nearby Huntersville. In the fall the Festival in the Park features arts, crafts, music and entertainment in a setting of full, fall colors. Cultural celebrations occur at different times throughout the year, including Greek, Italian, Indian, Native-American, Latino and Asian festivals. The Taste of Charlotte Festival held each year celebrates local cuisine and attracts top celebrity chefs to the area, and the Charlotte Shout Festival also offers a celebration of the arts and culinary exploration.
