CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Charlotte Knights released two photo renderings of their new stadium as construction continues in uptown Charlotte.

Crews began pouring concrete on the construction site last week after breaking ground on September 13.

The new ballpark will replace their current 22-year-old Fort Mill, South Carolina home and will be named BB&T Ballpark.

The Charlotte City Council the County Commission both voted to kick in $8 million each in subsidies so the team could secure financing for the facility, which will open in the spring of 2014.

The stadium for the Chicago White Sox’s Triple-A affiliate will seat 10,000 people.  The team projects attendance to double to 600,000 fans annually with the new uptown ballpark.
