The '''Charlotte Checkers''' are an [[United States|American]] [[ice hockey]] team in [[Charlotte, North Carolina]], playing in the [[ECHL]] (formerly the East Coast Hockey League).
   
  +
The Checkers were founded in [[1993]] and played from then until [[2005]] in [[Cricket Arena]]. In [[2005]], they moved to St. Lawrence Homes Home Ice at [[Charlotte Bobcats Arena]]. The team set their all time attendance record of 11,237 on February 10, 2007 in a 6-3 loss against the Texas Wildcatters. Their previous record was 10,894 in a win against the Florida Everblades in November 2005. As of February 20, 2007, they are second in the ECHL in attendance, increasing their attandance by 45% over their inaugral season at Charlotte Bobcats Arena. Many people claim that the new arena is part of the reason for increased attendance as well as an increased interest in hockey in North Carolina due to the in-state NHL 2006 Stanley Cup champions, and also the influx of northern transplants into the Charlotte region. However, it should be noted that Charlotte's minor-league hockey influence is much older, dating to 1956, when the Eastern Hockey League's [[Baltimore Clippers]] moved to Charlotte after a fire destroyed part of the Baltimore team's arena. They played games in the Charlotte Coliseum (now [[Cricket Arena]]) for the balance of the season. The team decided to stay in Charlotte, adopting the Checkers nickname in [[1958]]. The team joined the EHL's other Southern franchises in forming the Southern Hockey League in [[1973]], where it played until the league's demise in [[1977]].
==Franchise history==
 
   
  +
The current Checkers are named for the teams of the past, and for years were known for an orange and electric blue checkerboard pattern logo. However, it is possible that the Checkers name comes from the hockey term "checking."
   
  +
==History of the Charlotte Checkers==
Following a 17-year hiatus from hockey, Charlotte welcomed the Checkers back in 1993. Since their return, the Checkers have made the playoffs ten times, including winning the ECHL Championship in 1996.<ref>http://www.gocheckers.com/udp.php?id=121</ref>

{{main|History of the Charlotte Checkers}}
 
The current Checkers franchise was founded in 1993 and played from then until 2005 in [[Bojangles' Coliseum]]. In 2005, they moved to [[Time Warner Cable Arena]]. The team set their all time attendance record of 12,398 on February 21, 2009 in a 5-2 win against the Florida Everblades. Their previous record was 11,237 in a loss against the Texas Wildcatters in February 2007.
 
 
On January 21, 2010, it was reported that negotiations may be in the works for the owner of the Checkers to buy the [[Albany River Rats]], the [[American Hockey League]] affiliate of the [[National Hockey League|NHL's]] [[Carolina Hurricanes]].<ref>http://www.canescountry.com/2010/1/22/1265397/ahl-to-charlotte-closer-to</ref> On February 10, the sale of the River Rats to the Checkers owner was confirmed, with the Rats taking on the [[Charlotte Checkers (AHL)|Checkers]] identity starting with the [[2010-11 AHL season|2010-11 season]]. As a result of this, the Checkers' ECHL membership was relinquished to the League at the end of the [[2009-10 ECHL season]], ending the franchise's ECHL history. <ref>[http://www.albanyriverrats.com/news/latest/index.html?article_id=2034 "CAPITAL DISTRICT SPORTS ANNOUNCES RIVER RATS SALE" - AlbanyRiverRats.com]</ref><ref>[http://www.echl.com/cgi-bin/mpublic.cgi?action=show_news&id=21388 "ECHL Concludes Mid-Season
