Panthers detail plans to upgrade Bank of America Stadium
Posted January 7, 2014
The Carolina Panthers used social media and their website on Tuesday to detail upcoming renovations that will be made to Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte during the next three offseasons.
Starting Jan. 21, crews will begin installing new escalators, ribbon boards, high-definition video boards and an upgraded sound system. The changes, which team President Danny Morrison said, "impact all fans, maintain the stadium's classic look and improve fan experience."
