The reality of the Charlotte MLS team is getting closer. Reports say that David Tepper, the owner of the MLS team and the Panthers has his permits to begin required construction on Bank of America Stadium.
There’s some changes needed to the stadium for an MLS team. Things like a supporter’s section, installing locker rooms next to the Panthers locker room, implementing a tunnel in the center of the field for player entrance and adding soccer-specific camera angles for broadcasts.
The City of Charlotte committed $110 million to the MLS investment, but it still hasn’t formally been approved by City Council.
