Bobcats, Hurricanes Line Up Venue Swap For Preseason Games
The Bobcats and Hurricanes announced they have scheduled a “building swap” for preseason games this fall. The Bobcats will play the Heat Oct. 19 at RBC Center in Raleigh, and the Hurricanes will play the Thrashers Sept. 25 at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte. The swap was done to help develop a greater regional presence for both teams, officials from both clubs said. It will be the Bobcats’ first visit to RBC Center and the club’s first trip back to the Raleigh/Durham area since an '06 game at the Dean E. Smith Center in Chapel Hill.
