Where do the Charlotte Hornets play basketball?

Spectrum Center

Spectrum Center is an indoor arena located in Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina. It is owned by the city of Charlotte and operated by its main tenant, the Charlotte Hornets of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The arena seats 19,077 for NBA games but can be expanded to 20,200 for college basketball games. The arena opened in October 2005 as Charlotte Bobcats Arena and later became Time Warner Cable Arena when the naming rights were purchased in 2008. When Charter Communications purchased Time Warner Cable in 2016, the name was again changed to reflect the Spectrum trade name. North Carolina is a hot bed for college basketball, so Spectrum Center is a perfect venue for the March Madness. The arena has hosted NCAA Tournament games in 2008, 2011, 2015 and 2018. It also hosted the ACC Men's Basketball Tournament in 2008 and 2019.
