CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Carolina Panthers are working on plans to upgrade Bank of America Stadium, probably including new video boards and escalators.
The Charlotte Observer reported that team president Danny Morrison would not say whether the NFL team will ask for public support for the renovations.
Some city officials have indicated they would support using taxpayer dollars to upgrade the 16-year-old stadium.
City Councilman James Mitchell says the city has helped the Charlotte Bobcats NBA team and is helping the Charlotte Knights minor league baseball team.
Mayor Anthony Foxx sent a letter to Panthers owner Jerry Richardson on Tuesday inviting him to discuss stadium renovation plans with the city council.
Morrison has not said how much the renovations might cost. But he says he's happy the mayor is asking about the plans.
