Charlotte Knights 2016 Events

The recently placed Charlotte on it’s Top Ten list of Minor League Baseball Cities in America. It noted our fans showed up in numbers of 9,400+ per game in 2015. Charlotteans certainly love our new Uptown venue – BB&T Ballpark. With its central location in the heart of Third Ward, walking distance to the Lightrail, Romare Bearden Park, and plenty of social activities, there is no surprise that the Knights draw such large crowds.
