The Charlotte Rage was a team in the Arena Football League.


They competed in the 1992-1996 seasons. They played their home games at the Charlotte Coliseum, then also home of the Charlotte Hornets of the National Basketball Association.

The team made the playoffs in 1993 and 1994, losing both times to the Arizona Rattlers in the first round.
