Bank of America Stadium is the 13th oldest stadium in the league, but 10 of those have either received extremely major renovations or are getting ready to or are getting ready to move into a new stadium.

Only Buffalo (1973), Jacksonville, St. Louis (1995) have older stadiums with no real upgrade plans in the works.

What do you think will be in the works for us in the next decade? Major stadium renovations or a new stadium?

No way we build a new stadium in the next 20 years. I dont think it needs any renovations either. Its still nicer than most of the stadiums I have been in.

I agree that it's still one of the nicer stadiums in the league. I don't see any major renovations in the near future.

It was state of the art when it was made. Considering how long it took JR to shell out some dough for an incredibly modest big screen I don't see any renovations coming.

Seriously the big screen is small. I've only been to one game since it was redone and it's stanky.

Not really sure what needs to be updated. Maybe a Godzillatron like UT has? Not really necessary but OK.

The clubs are nice, the box seats plentiful and I can't think of a section that's just dreadful to sit in. The stadium isn't any kind of forward thinking architectural masterpiece, but nothing in Charlotte really is. Can't think of much reason at all to change much.

BOFA is still state of the art...I honestly can't see anything happening here for at least another 20 years...look at Atlantas shithole...they upgraded the Club Level and put some new seats in....Katrina made New Orleans dome more modern...if it were not for that then they would have done the same as Atlanta...just upgraded the interior....in other words...why change what is already good?

Update the horrendous TV's around the pavilions.

Just put in a LED strip on either side of the stadium and a bigger jumbotron.

Stadium is in great shape and always clean.

But feel free to keep bitching about something else that is pointless SMF. You are most amusing.

If not for Katrina we'd probably had a stadium on the riverfront.

The only 2 upgrades that I would want is for the endzones to be black all season and maybe a logo at midfield
