The Charlotte Knights (Class AAA; International League) have unveiled details on improvements to two group areas at BB&T Ballpark. Both the Piedmont Natural Gas Picnic Area, which is located in left field,and the Miller Lite Rooftop Party Zone, which is located in right field, will be overhauled before the 2017 season.
As fans continue to enjoy the Piedmont Natural Gas Picnic Area during the team’s fourth season in Uptown Charlotte, an extended awning will be installed before Opening Day to give them a better overall experience when enjoying that space with their group. The Piedmont Natural Gas Picnic area is an ideal location for groups of 20 or more and includes an all-you-can-eat buffet, along with a great view of the game and the beautiful Uptown Charlotte skyline.
Over in the Miller Lite Rooftop Party Zone, fans will also receive added cover with the installation of a 40×40 structure. The Miller Lite Rooftop Party Zone is a 300-person, capacity porch in BB&T Ballpark right field area high above the field. This unique area provides a social gathering place for co-workers, friends, and family, and includes a pre-game buffet and access to a private bar.
“We are very pleased to continue to make improvements like these to BB&T Ballpark to better serve our fans,” stated Charlotte Knights chief operating officer, Dan Rajkowski. “As we enter our fourth season at our Uptown Charlotte home, we believe that these two areas will now be better than ever.”
Both the Piedmont Natural Gas Picnic Area and Miller Lite Rooftop Party Zone have dates available for outings in the upcoming year. In addition, there are other group and hospitality areas at BB&T Ballpark to suit events large and small while enjoying baseball games in 2017.
