The Carolina Panthers are making a big switch, and it could mean good news for concert lovers!
After 26 years of playing on a grass field in Bank of America Stadium, the team announced that they will be pulling up the natural grass, and replacing it with FieldTurf.
FieldTurf is currently being used in five other NFL Stadiums, but the main move for the quick switch, the Charlotte Football Club. The CLT FC will start playing in 2022, and owner David Tepper explained that with two teams playing on the field, it would be near impossible to keep the real grass well maintained.
Okay, but what does that mean for you and me, who won’t likely ever even set foot on the ground of Bank of America stadium anyway. Well, it could mean more concerts.
Because the turf is more easy to maintain, it makes it easier to accommodate more activities in the stadium, including large scale concerts. 2020 was supposed to be the first year we saw large scale concerts in Bank of America stadium before the Coronavirus pandemic put everything on hold. Now it seems like while those original show are being rescheduled, we could see more and more popping up, and I’m pretty pumped about that!
