The Sports Town of Charlotte, NC.
Similar to the Queen City itself, Charlotte’s sports scene has grown immensely over the last three decades or so. Back in the day, the city gained its popularity because of the stock-car racing – commonly referred to as NASCAR.
Besides that, the city was also known for hosting professional ‘rassling, which is fake wrestling. And that was just about it for this beautiful city of Charlotte. There were no professional teams in the NBA, NFL, Major League Baseball, and the NFL. This meant that the sports fanatics mentioned above had to travel some distance if they wanted to watch and cheer for their favorite teams in their favorite sport.
But as time went by, so did such days, and now Charlotte doesn’t go a full weekend without hosting significant events in the world of sports.
