A couple of things you didn't mention, I85 runs through downtown Charlotte and the stadium is about two blocks from it. I pass by it a couple of times a years on my way to Florida. The light rail line is only about a kilometer long and only runs in the downtown.

The reason Siemens moved to Charlotte is because North Carolina is a right to work state where employees have very few rights and very limited ability to organize. It is an anti union utopia. Workers will take what they are given and if they don't like it too bad. Low wages and no benefits are the norm.

The decision to move had nothing to do with Hamilton and everything to do with lowering wages and maximizing profits on the backs of their employees.
