Last of its kind: Charlotte Coliseum to be demolished Sunday
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte Coliseum helped bring a once-sleepy town into the sports mainstream. It hosted the city's first major pro sports team and was home to the Final Four and the NBA All-Star game.
The building won't reach its 19th birthday.
The Coliseum will be demolished Sunday -- five years after its lack of luxury suites and premium seating led the NBA's Hornets to leave town and two years after it was made redundant by a glitzy replacement.
