|The Charlotte Coliseum was a multi-purpose sports and entertainment arena in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was operated by the Charlotte Coliseum Authority, which also oversees the operation of Bojangles' Coliseum, the Charlotte Convention Center, and Ovens Auditorium. It is best known as the home of the NBA's Charlotte Hornets from 1988–2002, and the Charlotte Bobcats from 2004–2005.|
The Coliseum hosted 364 consecutive NBA sell-outs from December 1988 to November 1997. It hosted its final NBA basketball game on October 26, 2005, a preseason game between the Charlotte Bobcats and the Indiana Pacers.
The city of Charlotte sold the property, and the building was demolished via implosion on June 3, 2007. A mixed-use development was planned for the space, but construction has yet to begin due to the economic downturn.
