It's the Bank of America Stadium
Located on 33 acres (13 ha) in uptown Charlotte, North Carolina, Bank of America Stadium is a 74,867-seat football stadium. Both the NFL's Carolina Panthers and MLS's Charlotte FC call this stadium home and HQ. LM Ericsson, a Swedish telecommunications company, originally held the naming rights to the stadium when it opened in 1996 and the name was changed to Ericsson Stadium. The naming rights were purchased in 2004 for $140 million by Bank of America, a financial services provider headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, for a period of 20-25 years. Due to its bowl design and other features, it has been deemed a "classic American stadium" by former Panthers president Danny Morrison . 
Along with home games for the Panthers and CLTFC, the stadium also plays host to the annual Duke's Mayo Bowl, a football game between ACC and either SEC or Big Ten Conference teams. Although the ACC Championship Game was moved in 2016, it was scheduled to return to the stadium in 2017. Bank of America Stadium will continue to host the ACC Championship Game through at least the 2030 season, the conference announced on May 19, 2022. In 2018, the Panthers' 16-8 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on September 9 drew a record-breaking 74,532 fans to the stadium. 
Potential Sites Under Consideration [ edit ]
The Panthers organization gave careful consideration to a number of potential stadium locations before settling on Charlotte's downtown. There once stood the landmark Good Samaritan Hospital on this property. Michael Moore, a local historian in Charlotte, identified the site as significant because it was the site of the city's first known lynching in 1913 while researching for the 2019 Equal Justice Initiative Community Remembrance Project. 
Another option was in northeast Mecklenburg County, close to both UNC-Charlotte and the Charlotte Motor Speedway, a NASCAR racetrack. An additional one occurred at the junction of Interstate 85 and US Highway 74 in western Gaston County. Locations near Carowinds amusement park were considered, with the 50-yard line straddling the border between North and South Carolina.
Authorization to Use a Predetermined Name [ edit ]
The stadium's original name was Carolinas Stadium, and that name is still used for some events. After the Swedish telecom company LM Ericsson paid $25 million for a ten-year naming rights contract, the stadium opened on August 3, 1996 as Ericsson Stadium. Bank of America bought the 20-year naming rights to the stadium in 2004, giving it its current name. Since then, "BOA" or "The Bank" have become popular fan nicknames for the stadium.
Sporting arena amenities [ edit ]
There are numerous distinctive architectural elements on the exterior of Bank of America Stadium. The team's colors of black, process blue, and silver are incorporated into the stadium's design at key points, such as the three enormous main entrances. The upper deck's connecting arches to the column supports are shaped like half a football, and the building is surrounded by acres of trees and landscaping. There have been numerous comparisons made to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Soldier Field in terms of the stadium's architecture and design. Some have said it looks more like "a fortress" than a stadium from the outside. 
Two larger-than-life bronze panther statues stand at each entrance, making this stadium the only one in the NFL with such an unusual feature. In 1996, a group of statues called "Indomitable Spirit" was put up. They are the largest sculptures ever commissioned in the United States, and each depicts a crouching, snarling panther with green eyes. Each statue's base is inscribed with the names of the original PSL owners of the team .
The stadium's six illuminated domes are another eye-catcher. Two of these sit atop each main entrance, and they are higher than a hundred feet off the ground. At first, they just emitted the Panthers' signature "process blue" glow each night. The radiance faded with the passing of the seasons, and the domes showed their age. LED lighting systems were installed during reconstruction of the domes in 2014. They are once again visible every night, projecting a variety of process blues that were simply impossible with the older technology. 
Outside of the stadium are two life-size bronze statues of Mike McCormack, a former team executive, and Sam Mills, a former Panthers linebacker and assistant coach, who are both members of the Panthers Hall of Honor. Where the upper ribbon board is now, the names of hall of fame inductees were displayed prior to the 2014 renovations. In 2019, signs replaced the original names that had been painted onto the ceiling behind the last row of seats. In 2014, the stadium's entrances were adorned with three marble copies of a quote from team founder Jerry Richardson.  After the renovations were completed, the entrances to the lower concourse were adorned with these quotations. In addition to being engraved on benches around the stadium, the sayings are also displayed on the walls.
To mark his 80th birthday in 2016, a statue of Richardson was installed just outside the stadium's north entrance. About 13 feet tall, the statue is 3 feet wide. 96 m) tall, and it features two panthers standing on either side of a life-size statue of Richardson. There are two panthers, one standing on its hind legs with its claws out and the other crouched. The "Indomitable Spirit" statue, the "Panther" statue, and the "Indomitable Spirit" statue are all the same bronze color, and all three sculptures look strikingly similar. Due to protests at the time, the team decided to take down the statue in June of 2020 (line 32). 
Panthers of Carolina [ edit ]
Since 1996, Bank of America Stadium has hosted every home game for the Panthers and seven postseason contests. Starting in 2002, Carolina has had over 150 consecutive sellouts at the stadium. 
Opening year [ edit ]
While the Panthers' new stadium was being built, the team played its first season at Clemson University's Memorial Stadium. The Panthers' preseason game against the Chicago Bears on August 3, 1996 marked the stadium's first professional football game. The first pitch was at 7:35 o'clock that evening. The final score was 30–12. The Panthers beat their future division rival Atlanta 29-6 in the stadium's inaugural regular season game on September 1, 1996. 
Finals and Game 7s [ edit ]
The 1996 playoff game between the Panthers and the defending Super Bowl champion Dallas Cowboys was the first ever played at Carolina Stadium, and the Panthers won, sending them to their first NFC Championship Game. In 2004, on their way to Super Bowl XXXVIII in Houston, they again prevailed over the Cowboys. On January 10, 2009, the Carolina Panthers suffered their first ever home playoff loss, a 33-13 defeat at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals in the divisional round. On January 12, 2014, the Panthers lost 23-10 to the San Francisco 49ers in the same round of the playoffs, marking their second consecutive home playoff loss. The Panthers defeated the Seattle Seahawks 31-24 in the divisional round on January 17, 2016, en route to their fourth appearance in the NFC Championship Game. On January 24, 2016, the Panthers won their second NFC Championship by defeating the Arizona Cardinals by a score of 49-15 in the NFC Championship Game. This was the stadium's first NFC Championship game and victory.
Noteworthy Weather Occurrences [ edit ]
Bank of America Stadium, being an outdoor venue, has had its fair share of bad weather-related incidents.
- At the end of the second quarter of the 2011 Week 3 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, a massive rainstorm engulfed the stadium. This resulted in miniature waterfalls appearing all over the field as water drained from the upper deck and onto the lower deck below. Rapidly rising waters flooded the field. A large number of images of players, some fans (many of whom were in the concourses), and cheerleaders braving the elements were captured by CBS cameras. More than four inches of rain fell in less than an hour. It was later dubbed the " Water Bowl" by Charlotte Magazine. Carolina prevailed, 16-10, in the end. 
- Heavy rain and wind hit the stadium in the third quarter of week 16's 2013 game between the Panthers and the Saints, a game that would have given the Panthers a playoff berth. Fans remained seated, and the rain stopped a few minutes later, unlike at the Jacksonville game, where it had been a non-factor. A 17-13 victory for the Panthers in the end.
- In 2015, during a Monday night game, the field conditions were terrible due to persistent rain. Still, the spectators once again faced the elements. It was a close game, but the Panthers came out on top, 29-26.
- Snow and ice/sleet mixture blanketed the field and parts of the stadium in the days leading up to the 2015 NFC Championship Game. The Panthers' grounds crew, with assistance, was able to get the field ready for the game, though. The majority of the snow and sleet had been shoveled or melted away by the time the game started.
- Storms of significant intensity hit the Charlotte area on July 11, 2016. In the middle of the stadium, several lightning strikes hit the playing field. Nobody got hurt. 
Affect on NFL stadiums [ edit ]
During the stadium's construction in the mid-1990s, it was a trailblazing endeavor in the implementation of Personal Seat Licenses. It was the first major project in the United States to be financed primarily through PSLs, a novel funding mechanism at the time. PSL pledges were so strong that NFL owners were impressed, and the Carolinas got the league's first expansion team in nearly 20 years because of it.
CenturyLink Field was partially modeled after Century Stadium, which is home to the Seattle Seahawks. Since Bank of America Stadium opened in 1996, 25 other venues had either been built from scratch or underwent major renovations by 2013. 
Repairs to the stadium [ edit ]
The stadium was ahead of its time when it first opened, so minor upgrades (aside from seating additions) were made to it until the 2013–14 offseason. Most notably, in 2007 31 new scoreboards, video boards, and displays replaced the originals, which had been in use since 1996. LED video boards measuring 5 x 77 feet by Diamond Vision Two ribbon boards were placed on each side of the field, and two more were placed in the four corners.
In the years that followed, the stadium was still viewed as antiquated in comparison to other NFL arenas. There were a number of factors at play, such as an inadequate cellular signal, smaller-than-average video boards, and a lack of a surround sound system. In the offseason of 2013, the Panthers invested in a new look for their home locker room. After being renovated, the locker room expanded from 66 to 74 compartments, gained a more contemporary feel, and prominently displayed the team's then-new logo. 
In early 2013, the Panthers proposed a $250 million stadium renovation project, with city of Charlotte funding at least part of the project. Two new sets of scoreboards, multiple escalators, and upgrades to the stadium's infrastructure and concourse were all part of this plan. Attempts to secure funding from the state of North Carolina and a subsequent vote by the city's residents were also unsuccessful . In spite of this, in April 2013 the Charlotte city council approved a agreement to renovate for $5 million Because of this agreement, the Panthers will remain in Charlotte through at least 2019.  The team's original vision for the renovations would be preserved despite the reduced budget.
Renovations from 2014-2017 [ edit ]
2014 [ edit ]
The Panthers kicked off the first phase of a multi-year plan to renovate the stadium in January 2014, and the resulting changes are the most significant in the venue's 18-year history. Numerous improvements were made in time for the start of the 2014-2015 NFL season. First and foremost, the old scoreboards and ribbon boards have been replaced by two 200' x 56' HD video boards from Daktronics and two 360° ribbon boards. Once the new ribbon boards and video boards were put in place, they were the largest in the NFL by height and by width respectively. Second, escalators were put in to help fans get to the upper level.  For these reasons, it was necessary to add on to the stadium's structure while keeping its distinctive exterior. In addition, a brand-new surround sound system was installed, with speakers serving double-duty as flagpoles around the bowl's outer perimeter. In addition, four "fan plazas," or covered open-air sections, were added to the upper deck. Finally, external signage was updated along with LED-enhanced glass domes installed above the principal entrances. 
2015 [ edit ]
In preparation for the 2015 season, the Panthers upgraded all 158 of the stadium's luxury suites and added a new private club suite, named "The 32 Club" because of its location on the stadium's 32nd yard line. A second new club, named the "51 Club" in honor of former player and coach Sam Mills, was subsequently announced by the team. The stadium's total seating capacity has grown as a result of these renovations, but the number of luxury suites has decreased to 153. There are now two ribbon boards, each about a foot in height, visible from the stands above each tunnel entrance.
2016 [ edit ]
Third, more Wi-Fi access points were added to the concourse, bringing the total to where it was before the renovations began. New drink concessions and improved concession stands were installed, and new signage with the team's current logos and word mark were installed on the upper concourse. Among the many new security measures are nearly one hundred full-body scanners that have replaced the older "pat-downs" at the building's primary entrances and a dedicated security office. 
As an additional gesture of appreciation to Jerry Richardson, the former team owner, a 13-foot statue of Richardson was erected in front of the stadium, and two life-size panthers were placed in the grass. In light of the George Floyd protests in June of 2020, the statue was taken down and is currently being kept in a secret location. 
2017 [ edit ]
New signage, remodeled concessions, and updated televisions in the club levels were all part of the fourth and final major renovation, which also included updating the lower-level concourse. The concourse also features banners commemorating pivotal moments in Panthers history. Enhanced club-level amenities allowed for a modest increase in available seating. Furthermore, a new playing field and drainage system were built. 
Various Alterations [ edit ]
The East Gate of the stadium now boasts Lowe's advertising alongside two Panthers posters, all of which were installed in 2019. Minor adjustments were made to the scoreboards, with various sponsor logos replacing the Panthers' original logo at the bottom of each screen. As part of the upgrade, new nameplates honoring Panthers Hall of Honor inductees were installed on the upper deck's rear wall. The club announced in 2019 that nearly a thousand seats would be taken out of the west end zone in 2020. In their place would be 14 field-level "bunker suites." Construction was completed in time for the 2020 season. 
MLS Redesign [ edit ]
Charlotte FC, the 30th team in Major League Soccer, was awarded to the city in 2019, and it was later revealed that the team would call Bank of America Stadium home. Though the field is sized appropriately for soccer, the stadium was not built with a permanent soccer team in mind. Improvements to the lower concourse include new locker rooms, camera vantage points, a tunnel entrance, and a curved video screen outside the east gate. The stadium was renovated and ready for Charlotte FC's inaugural 2022 season. For the 2021 NFL season, the stadium's surface will be FieldTurf rather than the Bermuda grass that has been used since the stadium first opened. 
Sports at the collegiate and high school levels [ edit ]
[ edit ]
To my knowledge, no college football team calls Bank of America Stadium its primary home stadium. As of 1996 though, the stadium has been the site of numerous college football games.  These contests feature teams from all over the state of Carolina, both North and South.
- The stadium hosted the annual ACC Championship Game between the Coastal Division champion and the Atlantic Division champion on the first Saturday of December from 2010 through 2015. The ACC initially committed to a 6-year contract extension to keep the game in Charlotte through 2019, but later backed out in September 2016 after North Carolina passed the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act (HB2). After the repeal of HB2 in 2017, the game was brought back. 
- Annually since 2002, Charlotte, North Carolina has played host to the Duke's Mayo Bowl (also known as the Continental Tire Bowl, Meineke Car Care Bowl, and Belk Bowl). There will be teams from the ACC and the SEC or Big Ten in the game.
- This stadium has been the site of the Duke's Mayo Classic (formerly the Belk Kickoff Game) since 2015. As the first to get together, North Carolina and South Carolina In 2017, NC State and South Carolina faced off in the Kickoff game; in 2018, West Virginia and Tennessee met. The second time North and South Carolina met was in 2019. In 2021, the Mountaineers were assigned as the home team for the games against East Carolina and Appalachian State. Clemson faced Georgia, and the Tigers faced the Bulldogs. 
- Several East Carolina Pirates games have been played at this stadium, including a 50-29 victory over the NC State Wolfpack in 1996, a 30-23 victory over the West Virginia Mountaineers in 1999, a 52-14 loss to NC State in 2004, and a 27-22 upset victory over the 17th-ranked Virginia Tech Hokies in 2008. and in 2011 they lost 56–37 to the 12th-ranked South Carolina Gamecocks. 
- This stadium was the site of a 63-9 Clemson victory over Temple in a non-conference game in October 2006. Temple originally scheduled the game to be played on campus, but the school postponed the game to Charlotte to save money. 
- In 1998 and 1999, the stadium hosted both North Carolina State and North Carolina games in their heated football rivalry. The Tar Heels prevailed by the final scores of 37-34 and 10-6. 
- The 2022 season will see a matchup between North Carolina A&T and North Carolina Central at the stadium.
- The North Carolina-South Carolina rivalry will continue in 2023 with another scheduled game at the stadium. 
[ edit ]
Myers Park High School of Charlotte, North Carolina, and South Pointe High School of Rock Hill, South Carolina, were scheduled to play on May 6, 2020. The scheduled date of September 5, 2020, for the game has been scrapped. 
Soccer [ edit ]
Bank of America Stadium's turf was constructed with a soccer field in mind. For the first twenty years of the stadium's life, this feature would sit unused. Since Charlotte FC moved in, the stadium has become a regular venue for Major League Soccer and international matches.
The Charlotte Hornets Football Club [ edit ]
Charlotte received an expansion team in MLS and began playing as Charlotte FC at Bank of America Stadium in 2022 after renovations were completed. On October 31, 2020, the stadium hosted its first Major League Soccer-related event, a match between the academy teams of Charlotte FC and Atlanta United. On March 5, 2022, in front of a record-breaking 74,479 fans, the team debuted at home, shattering the previous MLS record for attendance at a single match. The majority of Charlotte FC games are played on the lower bowl and club level, with a maximum capacity of 38,000. 
Additional Soccer Games [ edit ]
Bank of America Stadium had previously played host to numerous soccer matches before Charlotte FC's arrival. In both 1999 and 2000, the NCAA Men's Soccer Championship was held at the stadium. Despite this, regular soccer games didn't start happening until 2010. Since then, most games have featured foreign teams. In accordance with a multi-year agreement with Relevent Sports Group, the International Champions Cup uses the stadium annually to host international club friendlies. Various Premier League and Bundesliga teams, as well as national teams, have all played at the stadium .
Games between national teams and friendly matches between clubs from around the world [ edit ]
Concerts [ edit ]
For a long time, concerts at the stadium were extremely uncommon. The majority of Charlotte's live performances took place either at the Spectrum Center or one of the city's other venues. With David Tepper's 2018 purchase of the Panthers (and by extension, the stadium), a rise in the frequency of concerts was inevitable.

Aside From That [ edit ]
- In 1996, a Billy Graham crusade lasted for four days there.
- On September 6, 2012, the stadium was set to host the closing night of the 2012 Democratic National Convention, during which President Barack Obama was scheduled to give his acceptance speech for the Democratic Party's nomination for president. Even so, forecasted thunderstorms forced a move to Spectrum Center. 
- On May 4th, 2019, the first annual Untapped Beer Festival was held at the stadium. It was scheduled to host the second Festival on May 16, 2020, but the event was canceled because of the Coronavirus. 
- On March 7th, 2020, the stadium hosted the 14th annual Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ Festival. 
- Between January 29 and 31, and March 9 and 11, 2021, the stadium hosted a COVID-19 vaccination site. 
- From March 25th through the 28th, 2021, the Topgolf Live Stadium Series was held at Bank of America Stadium. 
Future [ edit ]
David Tepper, owner of the Panthers and Charlotte FC, has expressed interest in building a new stadium for the teams in Uptown Charlotte, with Bank of America Stadium being demolished at some point in the future. While the Stadium has been well-maintained and landscaped, Tepper joked in 2019 that it would be cheaper to give the stadium away because of the rising cost of maintaining it after decades of use. The stadium was innovative when it was built, but it has since become outdated due to its lack of open concourses (where spectators could watch games while standing) and retractable roof. Tepper has favored that the new stadium replace Bank of America Stadium, which was built primarily for football under former owner Jerry Richardson, be multipurpose with a retractable roof to accommodate his Major League Soccer team, concerts, major conventions, and the NCAA Final Four basketball tournament. Tepper mentioned plans for another major remodel in 2022 . It's estimated that after this makeover, the stadium will have another two or three decades of life left in it. 
Gateway Station, an 0 million intermodal transit hub, is currently under construction, and plans call for an entertainment district to be built between the future stadium and Gateway Station.
