Panthers Showcase Bank Of America Renovation Plans

Posted: Updated:
Days before hosting the team's first playoff game in five years, the Carolina Panthers announced their plans for the future of Bank of America Stadium. The Panthers revealed their plans at a news conference on Tuesday morning.

Planned improvements include:

• Four new bays installed at the three entry gates with extra wide escalators in each bay. One escalator in each bay arrives at the 300 Club Level. The other escalator in each bay arrives at the 500 Level.

• The new escalator additions are designed to be a seamless integration onto the existing stadium facade - maintaining its classic appearance and timeless design.

• At the top of each escalator bay (500 Level), open air canopies will cover more than 2,500 square feet of deck for expanded fan amenity plazas.

• Two new ribbon boards approximately five feet high will encircle the entire bowl at the club level and upper bowl level. These boards will feature game information and statistics, NFL scores and statistics, crowd prompts and sponsor elements.

• Two new 63-feet high x 212-feet long high-definition, LED video boards will be located above each end zone. These boards will feature areas for live video coverage and replays, game information and statistics, crowd prompts, and sponsor elements. The new video boards are two-and-a-half times bigger than the existing ones.

• A new high-efficiency, high-octave distributed sound system throughout the bowl.

• New illuminated glass domes on each of the three entry gates.

• Upgraded broadcast and programming spaces within the stadium.

Team President Danny Morrison said construction is scheduled to begin in two weeks. He said the renovations will be the first of three phases of renovation for the stadium, which was completed in 1996.

"We think the first phase of the renovation plan meets all of those objectives," Morrison said. "We'd like to (complete the project) in a three-year period. We'd like to be doing something every offseason for the next three years."
