Charlotte Coliseum

on September 20, 2007 - 10:30am


Cricket Arena, located on East Independence Boulevard, was Charlotte's original coliseum. The landmark dome opened in 1955 and served as the city's major sports and entertainment facility until the new Charlotte Coliseum was built in 1988. After extensive refurbishing and retrofitting, the venue reopened in 1993 as Independence Arena. It was renamed Cricket Arena in 2001. The renovation restored the arena's classic ambiance.  (courtesy Charlotte Coliseum Authority)


The naming rights to the 1955 Charlotte Coliseum were bought in 2008 by Bojangles Restaurants, Inc.
