Place of Worship: Bank of America Stadium
Charlotte, North Carolina, United States' Bank of America Stadium is a 74,867-seat football stadium spread across 33 acres (13 ha) in the city's uptown. It houses the National Football League's Carolina Panthers and Major League Soccer's Charlotte FC. The stadium originally opened in 1996 under the name Ericsson Stadium, named after the Swedish telecom company LM Ericsson. At a cost of $140 million over the course of a 20-25 year agreement, Charlotte, North Carolina's Bank of America purchased naming rights in 2004. It has a bowl design and other features that make it what former Panthers president Danny Morrison called a "classic American stadium" 
The annual Duke's Mayo Bowl, which features teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and either the Southeastern Conference (SEC) or the Big Ten Conference, is also played at the stadium, alongside the Panthers and CLTFC. The ACC Championship Game, which had been moved in 2016 but was reinstated in 2017, was scheduled to be played at the stadium until at least 2019. On May 19, 2022, the ACC announced that Bank of America Stadium would continue to host the championship through at least the 2030 season.  The Panthers' 16-8 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on September 9, 2018 drew a record-setting 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. The former Good Samaritan Hospital stood on a portion of the property. Historic preservationist Michael Moore of Charlotte, North Carolina, identified the location as pivotal because it was the scene of the city's first documented lynching, which took place that year, 1913, as part of the 2019 Equal Justice Initiative Community Remembrance Project. 
Alternatively, you could go to the area of northeast Mecklenburg County, which is home to both the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and the Charlotte Motor Speedway, a NASCAR racetrack. I-85 and US-74 in Gaston County's western part was the site of yet another. There was talk of putting it on the border between North and South Carolina, right next to the popular Carowinds amusement park.
Title to a Name [ edit ]
Carolinas Stadium is still the official name for some events held there, like FIFA matches. After Swedish telecom company LM Ericsson paid $25 million for ten years of naming rights in 1996, the stadium opened on August 3 as Ericsson Stadium.  The current name of the stadium was established in 2004 after a 20-year naming rights deal was struck with Bank of America. Since then, "BOA" or "The Bank" have become popular fan nicknames for the stadium.
The stadium's replete with [ edit ]
The exterior of Bank of America Stadium is replete with one-of-a-kind details. 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. Stadium architecture and design have been compared to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Soldier Field. It has also been said that from the outside it looks more like "a fortress" than a stadium. 
Two larger-than-life bronze panther statues stand guard at each of the stadium's entrances, making this venue one of a kind in the National Football League. A group of six statues, all titled "Indomitable Spirit," were unveiled in 1996. They are the largest sculptures ever commissioned in the United States, and each depicts a crouching, snarling panther with green eyes. The original PSL owners' names are inscribed on the base of each statue, .
The stadium's six lighted domes are also a notable feature. Placed over a hundred feet above ground, two of these crown each of the building's primary entrances. Once upon a time, they simply emitted the Panthers' signature "process blue" glow at night. The radiance faded with the passing of the seasons, and the domes began to show their age. The domes were reconstructed with LED lighting systems in 2014. They are once again visible every night, projecting a process blue that was simply not possible with the older technology. 
Outside of the stadium are two bronze statues of Mike McCormack, a former team executive, and Sam Mills, a former Panthers linebacker and assistant coach who are both in the Panthers Hall of Honor. When the building was renovated in 2014, the upper ribbon board replaced a wall that had previously displayed the names of hall of fame inductees. In 2019, signs replaced the original names that had been painted on the ceiling behind the last row of seats. Moreover, in 2014, three marble copies of a quote from team founder Jerry Richardson regarding the stadium were placed in prominent locations. These quotations were originally posted on the upper concourse escalators, but were moved to the lower levels as a result of renovations . Outside the stadium, the quotes are also engraved on benches.
For his 80th birthday in 2016, a statue of Richardson was placed in front of the stadium's north gate. Close to 13 feet tall (3 meters), the statue 96 m) in height and features two panthers on either side of a larger-than-life sculpture of Richardson. As the other crouches, one panther rears up on its hind legs, claws bared. The "Indomitable Spirit" statues, both panthers, and the bronze statue share a common bronze color and green eyes. As a result of protests in the area at the time, the team decided to take down the statue in June of 2020 (line 32). 
Super Bowl Champions: The Panthers [ edit ]
Bank of America Stadium has hosted seven playoff games in addition to every Panthers home game since 1996. Since the 2002 season, Carolina has had over 150 consecutive sellouts at the stadium. 
First year of play [ edit ]
As the Panthers' new stadium was being built, the team played its first season at Clemson University's Memorial Stadium. The Panthers' 1996 preseason game against the Chicago Bears was the stadium's first professional football game. At 7:35 p.m., the first game ever began. The final score was 30–12. On September 1, 1996, the Panthers played Atlanta, their future division rival, in the stadium's inaugural regular season game. The Panthers won, 29-6. 
Matches for advancement to the next round [ edit ]
The 1996 playoff game between the Panthers and the defending Super Bowl champion Dallas Cowboys was the first ever played at Bank of America Stadium. Super Bowl XXXVIII was played in Houston in 2004, and the Patriots went on to win the game after another victory over the Cowboys. On January 10, 2009, in the divisional round, the Arizona Cardinals defeated the Carolina Panthers 33-13, marking Carolina's first-ever home playoff loss. The Panthers lost again at home in the playoffs on January 12, 2014, this time to the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 23-10. 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. In the 2016 NFC Championship Game on January 24th, the Carolina Panthers defeated the Arizona Cardinals by a score of 49-15 to win the team's second NFC Championship. To my knowledge, this was the first time the NFC Championship had ever been played and won at the venue.
Significant weather events [ 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 their 2011 Week 3 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, a massive rainstorm engulfed the stadium. Miniature waterfalls formed all over the field as the excess water from the upper deck poured down onto the lower deck below. Rapidly rising waters flooded the field. Players, some fans (many were in the concourses), and cheerleaders were all caught on camera by CBS despite the inclement weather. More than four inches of rain fell in less than an hour. The game was officially known as 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 the Panthers' game against the Saints in Week 16 of the 2013 season, a game that would have guaranteed the Panthers a playoff berth. Fans stayed in their seats and the rain stopped a few minutes later, unlike at the Jacksonville game where the wind was a major factor. After a close game, the Panthers prevailed 17-13.
- During the 2015 season, a heavy rain continued all night on a Monday night game, creating terrible playing conditions. Fans, however, once again faced the elements. After a close game, the Panthers defeated the Colts 29-26.
- There was snow and an ice/sleet mixture on the field and in surrounding areas 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. Before the game started, most of the snow and sleet had either been cleared from or melted inside the stadium.
- A devastating storm hit the Charlotte area on July 11, 2016. In the middle of the stadium, a number of lightning strikes hit the playing field. Injuries were avoided. 
The Effect on NFL Stadiums [ edit ]
The stadium was an early adopter of Personal Seat Licenses when it was built in the mid-1990s. It was the first time that PSLs, a novel concept at the time, were used to finance a sizable project in the US. PSL pledges were so strong that NFL owners took notice, and the Carolinas got the league's first expansion team in nearly 20 years because of it.
The CenturyLink Field turf was inspired by, among other stadiums, the one used by the Seattle Seahawks. Since the opening of Bank of America Stadium in 1996, a total of 25 other stadiums had been built, renovated, or expanded. 
Repairs to the stadium [ edit ]
The stadium was so ahead of its time in its early years that it saw only minor upgrades (aside from seating additions) until the 2013-2014 offseason. The most noticeable upgrade occurred in 2007 when 31 new scoreboards, video boards, and displays replaced the originals, which dated back to 1996. Diamond Vision screens measuring 5 x 77 feet Two side-by-side ribbon boards and two corner-by-corner ribbon boards were also set up.
The subsequent years did little to change the general consensus that the stadium was not as cutting-edge as other NFL venues. The lack of a surround sound system, smaller-than-average video boards in comparison to the rest of the league, and spotty cell phone reception were just a few of the issues. The Panthers' home locker room was renovated in 2013. There were now 74 lockers instead of 66, and the interior was updated to reflect the team's then-new branding. 
In 2013, the Panthers proposed a $250 million stadium renovation project, contingent on a vote by the city of Charlotte to help fund it. Improvements to the infrastructure and concourse were also part of this plan, as were new scoreboards and multiple escalators. As a result, the city's vote was unsuccessful, and so were subsequent attempts to secure funding from the state of North Carolina. In spite of this, in April 2013 the Charlotte city council approved a Renovation contract worth $5 million The Panthers' new contract guarantees their continued residency in the Queen City through at least 2019.  The renovations would remain faithful to the team's original plans despite the reduced budget.
Alterations 2014-2017 [ edit ]
2014 [ edit ]
The Panthers kicked off the first phase of a multi-year renovation plan in January 2014, when they began the stadium's most extensive renovations in its 18-year history. In order to get ready for the 2014-2015 NFL season, a number of upgrades were made. The most noticeable change is the installation of two Daktronics 200' x 56' HD video boards, which are more than twice the size of the previous scoreboards/ribbon boards, 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. In light of this need, structural additions were made to the stadium's interior while the exterior remained largely unchanged. Flagpole-shaped speakers were installed all around the bowl to create a new surround sound system. In addition, four "fan plazas," or covered outdoor areas, were added to the upper deck. Finally, new exterior signage was installed, along with LED-enhanced glass domes, over the principal entrances. 
2015 [ edit ]
The Panthers upgraded all 158 of the stadium's luxury suites before the 2015 season began, and they also added a new private club suite at the 32-yard line that they call "The 32 Club." The club later announced the addition of a second club, the 51 Club, named after former player and coach Sam Mills. The stadium's total seating capacity has grown as a result of the 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. The upper concourse now has improved concession stands and new drink vendors, as well as updated signage featuring the team's current logos and word mark. Among the many new security measures are nearly one hundred full-body scanners that have replaced the old "pat-downs" at the main entrances and a brand-new security office. 
Additionally, as a gift to former team owner Jerry Richardson, a statue of him standing 13 feet tall between two life-size panthers was erected in front of the stadium. Following protests by George Floyd supporters in June 2020, the statue was taken down and relocated to an undisclosed location. 
2017 [ edit ]
Fourthly, new signage was installed throughout the lower-level concourse, concessions were refurbished, and televisions in the club levels were upgraded for this final major renovation. The concourse also features banners commemorating pivotal moments in Panthers history. Enhanced club-level amenities allowed for a modest increase in available seating. An entirely new playing field and drainage system were also built. 
Alterations to other areas [ edit ]
The East Gate of the stadium now features Lowe's advertising alongside two Panthers posters in 2019. Minor adjustments were made to the scoreboards by swapping out the Panthers logo at the bottom of each screen for those of various sponsors. New nameplates honoring Panthers Hall of Honor inductees have been installed on the upper deck's rear wall. Almost a thousand seats in the west end zone will be removed in 2020, the team announced the following year. In their place would be 14 field-level "bunker suites." All building work was completed in time for the 2020 season. 
Updates to the Multiple Listing Service [ edit ]
It was announced that Charlotte FC, the 30th team in Major League Soccer, would call Bank of America Stadium home once it joined the league in 2019. Although the stadium's field is the right dimensions for soccer, it was not built with a permanent soccer team in mind. Upgrades to the lower concourse include new locker rooms, cameras, a tunnel entrance, and a curved video screen outside the east gate. Before Charlotte FC's inaugural season in 2022, they undertook extensive renovations, all of which were finished in time. Starting with the 2021 NFL season, the stadium's surface will be FieldTurf rather than the Bermuda grass that had been used since the stadium first opened. 
Gridiron competition at the collegiate and high school levels [ edit ]
[ edit ]
There isn't a college football team that calls Bank of America Stadium its primary home stadium. However, since 1996, the stadium has been the site of numerous collegiate football games.  These contests feature teams from all over the state of Carolina, both North and South.
- For seven years, from 2010 to 2015, the stadium hosted the ACC Championship Game, a football game between the Coastal Division champion and the Atlantic Division champion played on the first Saturday of December. The ACC initially committed to keeping the game in Charlotte through 2019 by announcing a 6-year contract extension in February 2014, but they backed out in September 2016 after North Carolina passed the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act (HB2). As a result of HB2 being overturned in 2017, the game was brought back . 
- Since 2002, Charlotte has played host to the Duke's Mayo Bowl (also known as the Continental Tire Bowl, Meineke Car Care Bowl, and Belk Bowl) in late December. Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) vs. Southeastern Conference (SEC) vs. Big Ten Conference matchup
- Since 2015, the stadium has hosted the Duke's Mayo Classic (formerly the Belk Kickoff Game). In the first encounter, North Carolina and South Carolina Kickoff games have featured NC State and South Carolina in 2017 and West Virginia and Tennessee in 2018. The second meeting between North and South Carolina took place in 2019. Two of the games in 2021 featured division rivals: East Carolina and Appalachian State, with the Mountaineers serving as the home team, and Clemson and Georgia. 
- The stadium has hosted multiple East Carolina Pirates games, including a 50-29 win over the NC State Wolfpack in 1996, a 30-23 win over the West Virginia Mountaineers in 1999, a 52-14 loss to NC State in 2004, and a 27-22 upset win over the 17th-ranked Virginia Tech Hokies in 2008. ...and a 56-37 defeat at the hands of the 12th-ranked South Carolina Gamecocks in 2011. 
- Clemson's 63-9 victory over Temple in a non-conference game at the stadium 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 football games. Carolina triumphed by final scores of 37-34 and 10-6. 
- In 2022, the stadium will host a matchup between North Carolina A&T and North Carolina Central.
- In 2023, the stadium will host yet another North Carolina versus South Carolina football game. 
[ 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 game was scheduled for September 5, 2020, but was postponed. 
Soccer [ edit ]
Bank of America Stadium's field was constructed to be a standard soccer field. Over the first two decades of the stadium's life, this feature would see little use. With the addition of Charlotte FC, the stadium has become a regular venue for Major League Soccer and international matches.
The Charlotte Football Club [ edit ]
Charlotte received an expansion team in MLS in 2022, and the team's inaugural season as Charlotte FC took place in the newly renovated Bank of America Stadium. On October 31, 2020, the stadium hosted its first Major League Soccer (MLS)-related events, featuring academy matches between Charlotte FC and Atlanta United. On March 5, 2022, the team debuted at home in front of 74,479 fans, which was then a Major League Soccer record for a single-game attendance. Capacity for Charlotte FC games is capped at 38,000 due to the almost exclusive use of the lower bowl and club level. 
Alternate Soccer Matches [ edit ]
Prior to the arrival of Charlotte FC, soccer matches were regularly held at Bank of America Stadium. In 1999 and 2000, the stadium played host to the NCAA Men's Soccer Championship. Nonetheless, soccer games didn't become regular until 2010.  Since then, most of the games have been played between international squads. Because of their long-term contract with Relevent Sports Group, the stadium plays host to the International Champions Cup every year, a tournament that features international club friendlies played between national teams from around the world. Clubs from the Premier League, the Bundesliga, and a number of national teams have all played there.
Contests 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 Spectrum Center and other Charlotte venues hosted the vast majority of the performing arts events. More concerts have been held at Panther Stadium since 2018 when David Tepper purchased the team.

Various Other Occurrences [ edit ]
- In 1996, Billy Graham's crusade lasted four days at the stadium.
- On September 6, 2012, the stadium was scheduled to host the closing night of the 2012 Democratic National Convention, during which President Barack Obama was to give an acceptance speech accepting the party's nomination for president. Because of the possibility of rain, the event had to be moved to the Spectrum Center. 
- On May 4, 2019, the first annual Untapped Beer Festival was held at the stadium. The second Festival was scheduled to take place there on May 16, 2020, but it was canceled because of the Coronavirus outbreak. 
- The stadium held the 14th annual Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ Festival on March 7, 2020. 
- From January 29-31 and March 9-11, 2021, the stadium was a COVID-19 vaccination site. 
- From March 25-28, 2021, the Topgolf Live Stadium Series was held at Bank of America Stadium. 
Future [ edit ]
David Tepper, owner of the Carolina Panthers and Charlotte FC, has expressed interest in constructing a new stadium for the teams in Uptown Charlotte, with Bank of America Stadium being demolished 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 the lack of open concourses (where fans could watch games while standing) and a retractable roof. To accommodate his Major League Soccer team, concerts, major conventions, and the NCAA Final Four basketball tournament, Tepper has favored a multipurpose stadium with a retractable roof rather than a replacement for Bank of America Stadium, which was designed primarily for football under then-owner Jerry Richardson.  Tepper mentioned in 2022 that they were thinking about doing another major remodel. The stadium could presumably be used for another two or three decades after this renovation. 
The 0 million Gateway Station, an intermodal transit hub, is currently under construction, and plans call for the development of an entertainment district between the future stadium and the station.
