On Monday, the Carolina Panthers unveiled their proposed plans for stadium renovations. If approved, Bank of America Stadium, which has been the name of the Panthers’ home since 2004, will receive a major face-lift thanks to investments by David Tepper, his sports and entertainment group, and, of course, the taxpayers.

Though the proposal states that taxpayers would pay $650 million in public money over four years from 2025-29, it also claims that they will not require any new or increased taxes to fund the project. Meanwhile, Tepper Sports and Entertainment would infuse $688 million with a 20-year, non-relocation agreement.

The proposed stadium renovations include new video boards, as well as a new scoreboard and sound system. Also on the docket are new seats and social areas with views of the Charlotte skyline.

The Carolina Panthers are the primary tenant at the stadium. However, it also holds events like concerts and soccer games as well. Since 2018, Bank of America Stadium has hosted at least 40 major ticketed events a year. It also added that 1.85 million tickets were distributed for events last year at the stadium.

“Bank of America Stadium has been a special place for our Panthers, and now Charlotte FC, fans for nearly 30 years,” said Kristi Coleman, Carolina Panthers team president. “While Bank of America Stadium has solid infrastructure, investments are needed to ensure that our decades-old venue continues to deliver the best experience for our players, fans, and community.”

“Our goal is to build a collaborative partnership so that this community asset can continue to generate unique and memorable experiences for fans, as well as economic impact for the city and region for years to come,” Coleman said.

Panthers to host eight teams at BOA Stadium this season

On top of playing host to the Giants in Germany, the Panthers will have home games at Bank of America against the Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs, LA Chargers, Arizona Cardinals and Cincinnati Bengals.

The Panthers will open the 2024 season with a road game against the New Orleans Saints. Carolina has an all-time record of 28-30 against the Saints in franchise history.

During the 2024 season, the Panthers will travel to face their divisional opponents – the Falcons, Saints and Buccaneers – as well as the Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Commanders, Denver Broncos, Las Vegas Raiders and Chicago Bears. The team’s game against the Raiders in Las Vegas will be the first time playing in Sin City in franchise history.
