CHARLOTTE, North Carolina — Carolina Panthers president Danny Morrison says the team has completed renovating its 153 luxury suites and upgrading cellular service at its 74,500-seat downtown stadium.
The Panthers are two years into a five-year renovation plan.
Morrison says Panthers owner Jerry Richardson has already invested $71 million — about $33.5 million more than he first committed to the project — to upgrade the 20-year-old stadium. The city of Charlotte previously agreed to contribute $75 million for stadium renovations.
Among the luxury suite renovations include easier seating access, additional refrigeration, five large-screen television sets, private restrooms and fully retractable windows.
The team also upgraded its cellular service.
Morrison says the Panthers plan to upgrade the Wifi next year, along with renovating the stadium's 100- and 500-level concourses as part of phase three.
