KANNAPOLIS – The City of Kannapolis will celebrate the start of construction of its new Sports & Entertainment Venue at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 30 at the site in downtown on Chestnut Avenue.

The venue will be the new home of the city’s Minor League baseball team – the Kannapolis Intimidators.

The venue will also have 6,000 square feet of banquet and meeting space. It is designed as a public park with restrooms, includes a kid’s zone and will accommodate special events such as concerts.

The stadium will have a seating capacity of 4,930 with 3,218 of those being fixed seats. Other seating options will include luxury suites, a party deck, berm seating, dugout box seats, a picnic terrace, an outfield bar, right field boxes and 6,000 square feet of club/banquet space.

Construction will be completed by April 2020.

The Sports & Entertainment Venue is the catalyst for the city’s Downtown Revitalization Project and has already resulted in commitments for adjacent mixed use development by private investors.

The celebration will feature officials from the City of Kannapolis, Cabarrus County and the Kannapolis Intimidators. The A.L. Brown Marching Band as well as other fun elements will also be there to celebrate this important day in the history of the Kannapolis.
