Knights Stadium is the home of the International League's Charlotte Knights, the AAA affiliate of the Chicago White Sox. It was opened in 1990 and seats 10,002 fans. The park is actually across the state line from Charlotte, North Carolina in Fort Mill, South Carolina.

Plans to build the Knights a new stadium in the heart of Uptown Charlotte are currently in the works, as the team has garnered much criticism over the years for playing its home games in South Carolina.

The stadium was built to Major League Baseball specifications to be used should Charlotte land a major league team. Since any major league team moving to Charlotte would more than likely build its own stadium closer to downtown, any such use of the stadium would be temporary.

The stadium was previously known as Knights Castle, but was renamed to Knights Stadium in the late 1990s. The stadium is still known among Charlotteans as The Castle.

A landmark in the vicinity is a water tower painted to resemble a baseball on a tee. It can be seen from Interstate 77.

If the Knights get their wish for an uptown stadium it would create the problem of what to do with this stadium. Some locals have expessed that they would like to see the stadium converted for American football and soccer use since the stadium isn't very old.
