Carolina Panthers Release Renderings Of Massive Stadium Renovations

The Carolina Panthers have revealed renderings for their proposed upgrades to Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The upgrades would overhaul both the interior and the exterior of the stadium with aspirations of resembling a “park-like setting” that would be more welcoming for fans throughout the city.

Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports added that the upgrades would cost $1.3 billion, which would be split between public funding ($650 million) and Panthers owner David Tepper ($680 million), which also includes a 20-year tether to the city for the Panthers and Charlotte FC that both teams could get out after 15 years.

Here are the details that will be included in the Stadium upgrades:

  • New seating in the bowl.
  • A south lawn pavilion that can serve as a gathering spot and outdoor classroom.
  • Upgraded video and audio systems, including the scoreboard and video-board.
  • Exterior stadium improvements.
  • Upgraded bathrooms.
  • Improved accessibility and redesigned concourses.
  • Safety and security upgrades, like better lighting.
  • Modernized infrastructure, including plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems.

Bank of America Stadium opened in 1996 prior to the Panthers’ second season in the NFL. It was most recently renovated in 2021 to prepare for Charlotte FC’s inaugural season in 2022.

Tepper Sports and Entertainment is the holding company owned by David Tepper, who purchased the Panthers for $2.3 billion in July 2018. The 66-year-old has an estimated net worth of $20.6 billion.
