A new NFL stadium could be on the way in North Carolina. Charlotte Pipe & Foundry is relocating, making available a 55-acre lot near Bank of America Stadium that Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper has previously recommended as a new stadium site.
While it opened in 1996, the Panthers’ current home is one of the oldest in the NFL. It is currently receiving a $110 million, city-funded upgrade in order to host MLS games, but Tepper has said he would like to add a roof to the open-air stadium. Charlotte also spent $87.5 million on stadium renovations in 2013. The Panthers lease the property from the city for $1 a year.
Angels In Development
Los Angeles Angels owner Arte Moreno will present plans to develop the 153-acre Angel Stadium site by the end of the month. Anaheim City Council approved a $325 million sale of the property in December. It is to be determined if the stadium will be renovated or a new one is built – along with what other developments may be done on the site. Current reports suggest any new construction will have a residential focus.
The Globe Drive-In
The Texas Rangers have yet to play in their new $1.2 billion Globe Life Field, but it’ll start hosting drive-in concerts next month. The Concert In Your Car series will run June 4-7.
Four hundred cars will be admitted for the show, with fans required to stay in the vehicle and listen on an FM radio signal. Tickets are $40 per car.
