CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte FC kicks off its second season on Saturday at Bank of America Stadium.
During its inaugural season, the club broke an attendance record, beat Chelsea in a friendly, barely missed the playoffs and caused fans to flood into Uptown every time there was a match.
In turn, this season is expected to have a lot of hype connected to it. But for those who are heading to the match on Saturday, there are some road closures to be aware of so fans don't get caught up in a traffic snarl.
