The Knights are requesting funding support from the City of Charlotte to build a new AAA Ballpark. It will bring affordable family fun to the most convenient location in our region. The new ballpark will provide a new facility for youth and amateur sports tournaments that support the hospitality industry. We also know this AAA Stadium will bring jobs of all types, including youth employment. This public investment will be super catalyst for private investment and redevelopment of 36 acres of vacant land and surface parking lots. This stadium will bring life to Romare Bearden Park and will spur the creation of restaurants and retail as well as a hotel, office and residential development.
