Charlotte Knights ballpark gets new name: Truist Field

The new name was selected by title sponsor Truist after a merger between BB&T and SunTrust last year.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — When Charlotte Knights baseball returns to uptown, the home team will take the field with a new name: Truist Field. 

The team announced BB&T Ballpark will be renamed as Truist continues its sponsorship of the Triple-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox. As part of the agreement, Truist will donate $75,000 to the Knights Care 4 CLT fund, which was established by the Knights in April to assist those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in Charlotte. 

The brand transition will take place this month and is expected to be complete by the end of summer. 

“BB&T has been a valued partner for us and the North Carolina community, we are thrilled to be a part of this new chapter in history with them as Truist. We look forward to creating new memories at Truist Field,” said Charlotte Knights Chief Operating Officer, Dan Rajkowski.

In addition, the Knights are taking reservations for fans to eat, drink and take batting practice at the stadium.
