The Time Warner Cable Arena (also known locally as "TWC Arena", is an entertainment and sports venue located in the (downtown) area of Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. Its primary use is as the home court of the Charlotte Bobcats of the National Basketball Association. It made its grand opening in October 2005 for a concert by The Rolling Stones and hosted its first Bobcats game on November 5, 2005. The arena's center-hung Daktronics video screens measure 16 feet by 28 feet, making them the largest of any indoor arena. The arena is owned by the city of Charlotte, but operated by the Bobcats. It is also currently the youngest arena in the NBA.

The arena also serves as home to the Charlotte Checkers, a minor-league hockey team that plays in the ECHL. When the Checkers play there, capacity is reduced to 14,100.
