The 2024 MLS season got underway last week, and Charlotte FC kicked off their third season, with a 1-0 home win over NYFC. It was the first win for the club in a season opener, and it turned heads around MLS, after The Crown entered the season with little expectations, despite coming off a playoff appearance last season. Charlotte moved on Christian Lattanzio after he oversaw a team that left many points on the pitch and struggled to hold leads late in matches. They brought in Dean Smith, and his impact was apparent in the opener, with FC more organized from start to finish.

On Saturday night, Charlotte FC will kick off their third season of play in the MLS, when they host NYCFC, at Bank of America Stadium. The Crown will look to build off last season, which saw the club make a deep run in the Leagues Cup, which spurned a hot finish to the regular season, as Charlotte qualified for the MLS postseason in just their second season. For that to happen though, they'll have to overcome a lot of changes that took place this off-season, as Christian Lattanzaio wasn't brought back as the head coach, and Karol Swiderski, one of Charlotte's designated players left for another club.

New Charlotte FC Head Coach Dean Smith met the Charlotte media for the first time Monday at Atrium Health Performance Park offering his desire to impart a sense of newness for the Queen City’s MLS club.
