In October of 2005, residents of Charlotte and its surrounding areas welcomed a new beacon to Uptown Charlotte. Charlotte Bobcats Arena, built by the City of Charlotte and operated by the Charlotte Bobcats Organization, is home of the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats, the WNBA's Charlotte Sting and the ECHL’s Charlotte Checkers. In addition to professional basketball, Charlotte Bobcats Arena will host a wide variety of premier events from college basketball games and tournaments, to popular concerts and family entertainment.
Charlotte Bobcats Arena provides guests an emotionally engaging experience and treats visitors to a superior level of amenities. Guests can enter the arena’s distinctive lobby, filled with unique and colorful public art from either Trade or Fifth Street.
Once inside the building, guests will experience a superior level of amenities, including the largest scoreboard in any indoor entertainment venue in the country that features the largest video screen in use in any NBA facility. Full-screen LED technology allows an unlimited configuration of live and recorded video, scores, animation and graphics. And a unique, three-dimensional backlit cityscape above the scoreboard features the Charlotte skyline and uses a 360-degree projection system that allows the skyline to change and feature graphics such as airplanes and fireworks and night-time or daytime skies.
Guests also will experience a food and beverage menu that is unparalleled, with a freshness and diversity that will appeal to all palettes and ages. Industry-leading Levy Restaurants developed the arena’s food program to deliver a variety of food and beverage options that cater to every fan's taste.
