What is the season for this? Is there any overlap with the NFL schedule?

I guess Tepper will have to hire someone to teach fans how to properly cheer at games. Maybe it’s not to late to educate football fans as well

Nope.  It’s during Panthers offseason.

I would love the PSL/Season tickets, but would be interested in the wording. I think BoA would need MAJOR renovations to keep soccer there long term.  Tepper seems to be hinting at major renovations, so that's nbd, but I do wonder if a soccer specific stadium is in the works. Would hate to buy a PSL in BoA for soccer and then lose it in 5 years because we built a new stadium.

I mean Charlotte isn’t much of a city with sport demand, though it is growing ridiculously and in the future it could be. It’s a business city though, honestly I’d rather a baseball team before soccer. I’m not a sports marketing expert by any means but seems to a soccer team would not be profitable.

It seems like NC, at least, has a fairly strong soccer base, probably due to Duke, UNC, etc. I started casually watching Bundesliga games after some of the olympics buzz. To be fair, I watch them in "NASCAR" mode: fast-forward 4x until you see a goal/wreck, watch the goal/wreck, repeat until last few minutes of race/game. Saves a lot of time and significantly reduces the level of announcer drivel.

Honestly, the demographics in the Charlotte region are REALLY good for MLS.  I'm not sure I'd do season tickets, but would I go to a couple games?  Probably so.

I respect a person's freedom to not care for soccer, but what's the point of going into a thread that is clearly about soccer and interjecting your opinion amongst fans who are clearly excited about this opportunity?

Like, if you really "give zero about soccer" then you wouldn't take the time to post your dissenting opinion. 

I don't much care for soccer myself, but I wouldn't go out of my way to be a turd about it.

It’s all but guaranteed that Charlotte or Raleigh will get a team (with the increased expansion) and soccer will thrive in North Carolina regardless of where the team is.

It’s never been about the support but rather about the funding.

Charlotte’s diversity makes it an easy target market for a team. There’s no coincidence that the International Cup and Gold Cup matches sell out year after year.

Additionally North Carolina FC located in Cary, NC house the biggest youth to professional  soccer program in the entire country with over 13,500 players. 

I get not everyone likes soccer, just like not everyone likes hockey... However the old boys club can still watch their NASCAR on Sunday while the rest of us tune in to watch North Carolina’s MLS team.
