Tepper Sports to install grass field but not for Panthers

A better observation would be that turf is good enough for Charlotte FC, but not Chelsea. Why cater to a visiting team?

To bring Christian Pulisic back to BOA I'm pretty sure. The Liverpool vs Dortmund game was Tepper's first go at soccer in Charlotte if I remember right and Pulisic was the big draw.

Let me clear this up for you.

The MLS generally makes about 1 billion per year in sponsorship and broadcast revenues.

The NFL generally makes about 5.5 billion per year in sponsorship and broadcast revenues.

The EPL will be pulling down about 13 billion this year in sponsorship and broadcast revenues.

In America, we typically just don't "get" soccer.  In the rest of the world, it rules.

It would not surprise me to learn that Teppers ultimate goal is to flip the Panthers and Charlotte FC for an EPL team.  Would not surprise me at all.

No reason to flip he's got more than enough to own all three if he wanted. The Glazer family who own the Bucs and Manchester United have a fraction of Tepper's wealth.

I will never understand the amount of concern some of y’all have with grass. That is is not why we win or lose. 

because it’s a sign of a cheap, clueless owner trying to save money

grass looks better and is better to play on, also better for events there is literally no reason to not have it other than cost

Your right, but players prefer grass to turf and they feel less injuries happen on grass (non impact injuries). Why not do what makes the players happy and feel safer? I continue to dislike Tepper more every day.

I’m pretty sure someone here posted stats a while back that showed there is no statistical diff injury wise between turf and grass these days.  10 years ago?  Absolutely.  But todays turf is so diff
