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."
Extra-wide escalators at each of the three entry gates will allow fans to access both the 300 and 500 levels.
Five-foot high ribbon boards encircling the entire field will display scores, stats and advertising during games.
The high-definition video boards, which stand 63 feet high by 212 feet long, will be installed in both end zones.
The team will also improve the look of the entry gates with illuminated glass domes.
The team also posted a video of the plan for renovations on its website. No information about other renovations for future offseasons was released.
