Charlotte FC to Open Permanent Training Facility and Business Headquarters in Spring 2023

The 52,000 square foot Premier facility in Charlotte will house the club’s sporting and commercial activities

CHARLOTTE, NC (Wednesday, August 17, 2022) – Charlotte FC announced today that the club has entered into an agreement with Levine Properties to house the club’s permanent training facility and corporate headquarters in Charlotte.

The 8600 McAlpine Park Drive location will include a privately funded 52,000 square foot facility with four world-class pitches and will be home to the club’s First Team, MLS NEXT Pro and Academy teams. The Charlotte FC First Team is currently training on fields at the site and will continue to do so ahead of the facility’s full opening next year.

Renovation work on the existing structure at the site will begin immediately and will be completed in spring 2023.

“A permanent training facility and place of business for Charlotte FC has been a priority for the club since its inception and we are delighted to enter into an agreement to bring this to life,” said owner David Tepper. “The timeline for this project was critical and we look forward to providing our players and staff with a world-class facility in Spring 2023. This is an important milestone for our club and reflects our commitment to continue investing in the infrastructure that will enable Charlotte FC to be a leader in Major League Soccer on and off the pitch.”

The club made a significant investment in the property earlier this year to fund training pitches for the team. After completion, a total of four playing fields, including an artificial turf field, will be part of the facility.

“Today is a special day for our organization as this facility will be a crucial part of what will propel Charlotte FC to the top of football in North America for years to come,” said Sporting Director Zoran Krneta. “Having all our teams in the same place is vital to our sporting vision and creates an optimal environment for our players and staff to perform at the highest level at every step of our professional journey.”

The facility will be the headquarters for the club’s more than 110 employees.

“We are thrilled to have a permanent home in Charlotte that brings everyone in our organization together under one roof,” said President Joe LaBue. “Staying in the heart of Charlotte allows for better access to our athletes and fields, which is a key factor in expanding our impact in the community. The potential for a wide range of private and public programs on our campus will play a significant role in the growth of the game. We look forward to our future home and would like to thank Daniel Levine and his team for their support in shaping our vision. This is a tremendous step forward and we believe this facility will become a cornerstone for Charlotte FC as we continue to build a football club that the Carolinas are proud of.”

A full reveal, including the name, renders, and more, will be presented later this fall.
