Soccer renovations at Bank of America Stadium

Major League Soccer newcomers Charlotte FC are set to kick off soccer-specific renovations at Bank of America Stadium.

The $50 million project includes improvements to the east end of the stadium where Charlotte FC’s supporters’ section will be positioned, as well as the creation of a center players tunnel and surrounding premium club space and player and coach locker rooms.

Eight new broadcast positions are also being added for soccer-specific angles, and the plans include expanding the surrounding plaza.

The project will continue during the Carolina Panthers’ 2021 NFL season.

The updates are expected to conclude by the time Charlotte FC kick off in 2022, becoming the 28th MLS team.

Meanwhile, before Nashville SC’s soccer-specific stadium opens in 2022, the club has unveiled a preview centre for fans at the team’s headquarters.

The experience includes a 3D model of what’ll eventually be a 30,000-seat venue, giving fans a glimpse into what their seat’s vantage point will be.

The preview centre is currently open to premium seat members through the summer before it opens to other supporters.

Nashville will play home matches during the 2021 season at Nissan Stadium. Also home to the NFL’s Tennessee Titans, Nissan Stadium welcomed nearly 60,000 fans for the club’s home opener against Atlanta United.
