York County approves 1-year lease with Knights
FORT MILL -- The Charlotte Knights will be in York County for at least the next year.
The York County Council initially approved the Knights' lease on the 32 acres between Interstate 77 and U.S. 21 in Fort Mill, which was set to expire at the end of the year.
The new lease will enable York County to use the stadium whenever the Knights are not playing.
York County Manager Jim Baker said the Knights asked the county to consider a two-year lease before deciding on a one-year deal that can be renewed by mutual consent.
"They'll certainly be here a year," Baker said. "The best guess is a couple years."
The Knights also are negotiating a lease with Mecklenburg County for land in the uptown Charotte area, where a $35 million stadium is proposed.
York County has been looking at alternative uses for the stadium should the Knights leave.
One option, an agricultural and equestrian tourism center, is being studied.
