American Legion Memorial Stadium
American Legion Memorial Stadium, at 1218 Armory Drive, is a brand new stadium, not a renovation of the original Memorial Stadium, which had structural issues that made it unsafe.
The Charlotte Independence are playing the remainder of its games in this stadium, after moving from the Sportsplex at Matthews.
The stadium is bowl-shaped, with a maximum capacity of 10,500, including 9,500 fixed seats. It boasts a view of Charlotte’s skyline, and access to Little Sugar Creek Greenway and Independence Park, via a pedestrian tunnel.
