Memorial Stadium

American Legion Memorial Stadium is a 17,000-seat stadium located at 310 N. Kings Drive in Charlotte. Ground was broken on the stadium in 1934 and the gates were officially opened two years later in 1936. Named in honor of local soldiers who fell in World War I, the stadium was a project of the Works Progress Administration.

The stadium plays a significant role in Charlotte-Mecklenburg high school football and is the official home of Charlotte Kickoff Night.
