“We are looking forward to a fun and exciting 2024 season,” said CPL Commissioner Chip Allen. “We are adding a new club in Greenville that fans can look forward to, and are already hard at work in planning a wonderful two-day All-Star event in Forest City. Fans will not want to miss what this coming summer has in store, so be sure to get your tickets and we’ll look forward to seeing you this summer!”
All together, each team will play a 48-game regular season schedule with 24 league games per club in the first half and another 24 in the second half. The first half will run from May 23 through June 22, while the second half will start on June 23 and carry on through July 27. The league’s marquee event, the 2024 CPL All-Star Game will be held July 7-8 at McNair Field in Forest City, N.C. Meanwhile, following the regular season, four teams – two from each division – will square off in the Petitt Cup Playoffs.
