About American Legion Memorial Stadium

Families, friends and soccer fans from the Charlotte community are invited to attend the unveiling of the all new $40 million American Legion Memorial Stadium.

Over the years, the venue hosted concerts, community events, and sporting events ranging from Rick Flair and wrestling to the 1981 Carolina Lightnin’ in the American Soccer League Championship game. From 1937 to 2000, the stadium hosted the annual Shrine Bowl, showcasing top high school football players from North Carolina and South Carolina. Since 2012, the Charlotte Hounds of Major League Lacrosse has called the stadium home.
