Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
BB&T Ballpark is a baseball stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Uptown-area stadium hosts the Charlotte Knights, a Triple-A minor league baseball team in the International League.HistoryAn Uptown stadium for the Knights had been a long-running saga in Charlotte, occasionally the subject of contentious debate. Since the dawn of the new millennium, the Knights had consistently had the worst attendance in the International League. Their stadium at the time, Knights Stadium, was located in Fort Mill, South Carolina, 30 minutes south of Uptown Charlotte. Many fans were unwilling to brave the traffic on Interstate 77 to get there.The project had been repeatedly blocked by Jerry Reese, a Charlotte lawyer who claims the land swap is illegal. Reese has ambitions to move a Major League Baseball team to Charlotte and views a Triple-A sized stadium for the Knights as a detriment.In August 2006 the stadium became the source of more debate, as Mecklenburg County commission chairman Parks Helms said he would stall an arts project until the Charlotte City Council looked at a proposal he backed to bring baseball to Uptown.

Where to stay in Charlotte

To avoid driving or riding on public buses during your visit to Charlotte, book your room in or near the city center. You can find most of Charlotte's chain hotels in so-called "Uptown," the centrally located business district and hub of tourist action. Hotels near the airport provide good low-rate options for travelers on a limited budget. These spots offer rooms with access to major roads, allowing you to explore the region quickly and easily.

  • Very nice and clean ball park. Lots of options when it comes to concessions. Staff is friendly. There is a convenient lost & found booth that we utilized after my friend accidentally left her phone in the restroom. Our employer rented the catered bench section, which was very nice.. only thing is I was extremely limited as a vegetarian in what I could eat compared to my carnivorous counterparts - think corn on the cob, potato chips and cookies. Even the potato salad had meat in it.. who does that? They have theme nights, donation/charity nights, etc. Prices are affordable. Ballpark is family friendly.
  • Such a nice ballpark, especially for the minor leagues. Not only do you get to take in the gorgeous city skyline as the backdrop (I highly recommend sitting on the third baseline side) but they also offer tons of gourmet food options and craft beer. The tickets are usually pretty inexpensive, sometimes you can snag an infield ticket for $13-20. I also have to say that for a large venue with lots of people drinking and thus using the restroom facilities a lot, they keep the facilities very clean. Honestly, even if you're not a huge baseball fan the games are super fun to attend as a casual weekend get together with friends - I feel like a large part of that revolves around the park itself.
  • One of the best minor league parks in the Country. The facilities are top notch. The views of the city in the background are outstanding and can be seen from the 1st and 3rd base lines. Plenty of food and drink spots so the waits are not too bad. Just a great experience.
  • Clean and attractive stadium. Lots of reasonably-priced, delicious concessions. Comfortable seats with armrests and cupholders. Beautiful view of the Charlotte skyline. No parking issues as there are plenty of options in downtown parking decks, priced about $6. A great experience.
  • Went here for the USA v Cuba game on the 4th. Staff was friendly and helpful. Concessions areas were clean, well stocked, and quick. Seats were easy to find and had a good view. My one complaint was that the floor of the main concourse area got VERY slick when wet.
