This new pitch, unveiled Tuesday, was part of an initiative from the Club's Pitches for Progress which plans to install 22 mini-pitches in the Charlotte area and across the Carolinas. These pitches are meant to provide both kids and adults with a safe way to play soccer.
Some students from the elementary school will be selected to play a small-sided game on the brand-new pitch.
Charlotte FC installed another mini-pitch in September at Idlewild Elementary School.
