Inclement Weather Policy
Inclement Weather Policy

If lightning is detected within an 8-mile radius of Bank of America Stadium, the venue will enter a Shelter in Place protocol. This protocol will remain in effect until there is no lightning detected within an 8-mile radius of the stadium for 30 minutes.

If you are outside the stadium when shelter in place takes effect:

  • Please seek cover immediately. If the nearest shelter is the stadium, only North, East (Lowe’s), and South gates will continue to operate under the covered area.

If you are inside the stadium when shelter in place takes effect:

  • The seating bowl and field will be evacuated. Stadium staff will help direct fans to the nearest and safest shelter.

If the shelter in place surpasses team warmups and/or scheduled kick time, Charlotte FC and MLS will determine a new kickoff time which will be communicated out to fans. Weather updates will be sent out to fans via email, the Charlotte FC app, and live tweets from the @CharlotteFC Twitter account. Updates will be sent out every 20 minutes.
