About Bank of America Stadium
Bank of America Stadium
Located in Charlotte, North Carolina, is the Bank of America Stadium - 33 acres of pure football love and home of the Panthers. More than football games, this venue hosts FIFA matches, concerts, and many other events.
The Bank of America Stadium, previously known as the Carolina’s Stadium, opened its doors on September 1, 1996. The stadium’s architectural features are simply unique and its enormous entrances sporting the Ravens blue and silver colors are astounding. Although the surrounding area is filled with lush forests, the stadium is thought to resemble the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum along with Soldier Field. With a capacity of 75,523, the Bank of America Stadium looks more like a fortress than a sporting venue, partly because of the six impressive panther statues crouching, the largest sculptures to ever be commissioned within the United States.
At the time of construction, the Bank of America Stadium was considered to be one of the best stadiums in the NFL, but the title got lost over the years because it lacked technical equipment. So, in 2014 the stadium got upgraded with an improved sound system, better monitors, more seats, LED-enhanced glass domes and the tallest ribbon boards in the NFL.
Besides being home to the Panthers, the Bank of America Stadium annually hosts the Belk Bowl - which features teams from the ACC (Atlantic Coast Conference) and the SEC (Southeastern Conference) - and soccer games, mainly international matches. Other than sporting events, there are concerts sprinkled throughout the year taking place at the stadium. The Rolling Stones, Tim McGraw, Billy Graham, and Kenny Chesney to name a few have all performed at the Bank of America Stadium.
