The game will be staged at Carter-Finley Stadium, the home of the North Carolina State football team. The stadium seats more than 57,500 spectators.

The 2021 Navy Federal Credit Union NHL Stadium Series will mark the 12th NHL Stadium Series game and will be the 32nd regular-season outdoor game overall that the league has staged. It will be the first outdoor NHL game played in North Carolina.
