Charlotte FC to spend $50m to prepare NFL stadium for MLS

Saturday 24th April 2021

New MLS expansion outfit Charlotte FC are to spend $50m to prepare the Bank of America stadium for its MLS debut.

Charlotte will join the MLS for the 2022 season and will play at Carolina Panthers' NFL stadium. The stadium will become one of the biggest in MLS, capable of holding more than 75,000 fans. However, the club anticipates that it will only open the lower tier for most games, capping capacity at around 40,000.

Changes made for the MLS will include expanded entrances, new soccer locker rooms and a central players' tunnel. The improvements also include a 210-foot wide LED screen, as well as upgraded concourses, more food and drink kiosks and a limited capacity new tunnel bar.

Charlotte FC will join the MLS Eastern Conference next season.
