A Look At The Carolina Panthers Home Stadium: Two States One Team

Bank of America Stadium BreakdownSunday’s NFC Championship Game involves the Arizona Cardinals visiting the Carolina Panthers. Since 1996, the Panthers have called Bank of America Stadium home. The 75,412-seat field sits in the southwest corner of Uptown Charlotte (Charlotte’s downtown), immediately north of I-277 and just east of I-77.  The stadium serves as Carolina’s gameday venue, as well as home to the franchise’s administrative offices, practice facility and 3 practice fields (located north of the stadium).

The exterior of the complex features three main entrances, each adorned with two giant bronze panther statues. The north entrance also showcases statues honoring former player Sam Mills and former executive Mike McCormack (both deceased).

Once inside, the fan experience includes 153 luxury suites, 4 suite clubs (The Fifty One Club named after Mills), dual 56’ by 199’ LED video boards and a Panthers Team Store.

The 33-acre venue offers limited onsite parking, but its center city location allows for access to roughly 30,000 nearby spots.

Bank of America Stadium sits 7 miles east of Charlotte Douglas International Airport and 12 miles north of the North Carolina/South Carolina border. The Panthers’ “Two States. One Team” slogan embodies the regional Carolinas marketing strategy used by the franchise since it began play in 1995.

Panther fans can also check out Cam Newton’s Uptown Charlotte condo, located less than a mile from the field.
