Located at 2700 East Independence Boulevard, Bojangles' Coliseum is just minutes from Center City Charlotte. The landmark dome opened in 1955 as Charlotte’s first coliseum and served as the region’s major sports and entertainment facility for over 30 years. It hosted the first-ever professional hockey game in Charlotte in front of a sold-out crowd in January of 1956.
The building closed in 1988, but after extensive refurbishing and retrofitting, 11,000 seat venue reopened to the public in 1993. Another round of renovations designed in part to raise the building to American Hockey League stardards, including new seats, a new videoboard and new locker room spaces, will begin in the summer of 2015.
The celebrated facility has been known by many names: Charlotte Coliseum, Independence Arena, Cricket Arena and now Bojangles’ Coliseum.
