Charlotte to Host 2017 All-Star Game

Charlotte has won its bid to host the 2017 All-Star Game, according to Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer. A formal announcement will come Tuesday at a news conference that features NBA commissioner Adam Silver and Hornets owner Michael Jordan.

Charlotte submitted its bid last summer, and winning the bid was apparently contingent on the Hornets’ stadium, Time Warner Cable Arena, getting an upgrade. Lo and behold, the city agreed last fall to pay $27.5 million toward arena renovations.

All-Star Weekend is typically in mid-February, but the 2017 dates haven’t been released yet.

Charlotte has hosted the All-Star Game once before, and that happened in 1991 at the old Charlotte Coliseum, which has since been demolished.
