SPORTSPLEX AT MATTHEWS
Mecklenburg County Sportsplex at Matthews
The sprawling Sportsplex at Matthews is known for summoning sellout crowds. With nine multipurpose synthetic turf fields and two grass fields under its purview, the venue's versatility has much to do with that. The Sportsplex's ability to welcome everything from intense battles of lacrosse to soccer, rugby, football, field hockey and more means nearly every kind of sporting event is suited for play here. It's also known as the home turf for the Charlotte Independence, the city's United Soccer League (USL) team.
A 2,500-seat grass stadium accommodates vast, far-reaching fan bases. And with added amenities, like paved walking trails and playgrounds, guests can find entertainment before or after the game clock has expired. Additionally, ample meetings space, which includes a two-story field house containing a 90-person conference room, means event planners have a behind-the-scenes place to prepare. With home, away and referee locker rooms also located inside the field house, teams can make themselves at home.
