Construction on downtown Kannapolis ballpark moving forward

KANNAPOLIS, NC (WBTV) - The steel framework for the Kannapolis Sports and Entertainment Venue is going up.

Along with the ballpark, the venue will also have 6,000 square feet of banquet and meeting space that people can rent for conferences, meetings, and special events. It is designed as a public park with restrooms, includes a kids zone and will accommodate special events such as concerts.

Located in downtown Kannapolis, this will be the home of our minor league baseball team.

The stadium will have a seating capacity of 4,930 with 3,218 of those being fixed seats. Other seating options will include luxury suites, a party deck, berm seating, premium dugout box seats, a picnic terrace, an outfield bar, and right field boxes.

The Sports & Entertainment Venue is the catalyst for the City’s Downtown Revitalization Project and has already resulted in commitments by private investors for adjacent mixed use developments totaling more than $100 million.

Construction will be completed in time of the start of the 2020 baseball season.
