FUSING the community together.

FUSE is the Franklin Urban Sports and Entertainment District.
It is located on Franklin Boulevard (U.S. 74) in Gastonia, linking the center city to the historic Loray Mill area. Expected to open in the late Spring or early Summer of 2021.

At the heart of FUSE is the multi-use facility that will host
sporting events, festivals and concerts year-round. FUSE is more than a baseball stadium.
It connects prime properties associated with Gastonia’s heritage to
exciting new uses essential for the city’s future. It connects neighbors with neighbors.

FUSE provides opportunities for new residential and commercial development. It connects the
public and private sectors in an exciting new way. It brings vitality and energy to Gastonia.
