History of Time Warner Cable Arena
The arena was originally meant to host the Charlotte Hornets. There was a lot of opposition in building the new arena which involved including an arts package as part of the arena build-out. Local people argued that it was immoral for the city to build a new arena when city workers didn’t earn enough to make a living. Voting eventually failed and the arena plans weren’t passed.
Then city leaders devised a way to build a new arena in a way that didn’t require voter support, and that the current Hornets’ owner George Shinn had to sell the team. The plan worked and the Hornets moved to New Orleans and the NBA promised the city that they would get a new team in what became the Charlotte Bobcats.
In 2008, the Bobcats reached a naming rights deal with Time Warner Cable, the area’s largest cable television provider.
In 2011, it was announced that Time Warner Cable Arena would be the venue for the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
