They played their home games in Raleigh, North Carolina, at the Raleigh Entertainment & Sports Arena (now called the PNC Arena) prior to the 2003 season. The team was based in the Charlotte Coliseum through 2004. Coaching staff included: Ed Khayat, John Gregory, Ron Selesky, Ray Jauch. On September 20, 2004, prior to the arrival of the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats, the league announced the termination of this franchise; its players were made available to the other AFL teams in a dispersal draft.
The Cobras' legacy in Charlotte was actually meant to fill open dates at the Charlotte Coliseum when the original Charlotte Hornets moved to New Orleans. When the newly reformed Hornets (then known as Bobcats) began play, the Cobras were no longer necessary.
The Cobras name (previously used for one year by the Charlotte Cobras of what is now the National Lacrosse League) is now in use by the city of Charlotte for its works team in the National Public Safety Football League.
