Charlotte has been up for a potential expansion team in the MLS standings dating back to 1996, but was consistently passed over until recently. The Charlotte Independence was founded in 2014 and plays out of the USL Championship.
Carolina Panthers (NFL) owner David Tepper presented an expansion bid to MLS officials in July 2019 and Charlotte was officially awarded a franchise in December 2019, although it didn’t begin play until the 2022 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The club plays out of the same stadium as the Panthers (Bank of America Stadium), but has a reduced capacity of 38,000.
