For the Charlotte Knights opening day on April 11, the franchise had a SELLOUT to 10,000 fans! Ticket prices were being sold by private parties for as much as $150. Normal ticket prices for a Charlotte Knights game will range from $8 – $18. Team officials are hoping that throughout the 2014 season, BB&T Ballpark will have over 600,000 fans in attendance. This is a big boon to Uptown Charlotte, which is already reaping the benefits of successful 2013 -2014 Carolina Panthers and Charlotte Bobcats seasons.
Can’t get a ticket? Don’t worry, you can still be part of Charlotte Knights excitement – there is a large external video board facing Romare Beardon Park across the street from the ballpark.
