What's the trick here. Last year at the Vikings game the whole stadium stood in denial when mare Shankar that chip shot. We all left at the same time. I parked in the parking deck and it took an hour and a half just to get out of downtown WTF? So who has advice on a quick exit ? I will be headed back to Wilmington via 74/76

I've never had any problems like that... we usually stay afterwards a bit and chill... pick up some cups people leave (I've got like 200 Panthers cups now) and then head down.

I usually park over off of 4th street in a lot, and have never, ever sat in traffic (other than the fairly normal traffic on Indepedence).

Not sure which parking deck you're referring to, but my best advice is park a little farther away from the stadium and walk a bit... time you get to your car and go out, traffic will be gone.

When viewed from the freeway BoA doesn't really look very big. Rather small looking, actually.

What the hell does this have to do with traffic?

That's the only thing I know about BoA really. Only ever seen it driving through.

Why the fug have you never been to a game if you live in Charlotte or the Charlotte area??

That makes me angry.

make sure you park about 10-15 min worth of walking distance away and you will have very little traffic. wont cost much, if anything, either.

I don't usually have traffic problems. I park in the gravel lots on the west side of the stadium and leave on 77. I've found Charlotte to be one of the easier cities to drive in after a big event actually.

Park at a light rail station, take the train to the stadium, and take it back to your car after the game.

If I lived remotely close to BOA, I would at least make it to half the games. You haven't even been to one??

I was at that same game. Hung around downtown to try to let the traffic die down. Grabbed some food and a beer still took me forever to get back to Raleigh.
I think its just this unless you live in Charlotte going to a game is an all day event no matter what.

No. Charlotte is several hours away from Wilmington. I'm going to go someday soon but I can't afford it this year.

I live in LA and I've been to a couple games.


This is why our stadium gets out numbered by the visiting teams...
