The Carolina Panthers became the 29th National Football League franchise on October 26, 1993. The Panthers began play in the 1995 season, winning an expansion-team-record seven games. In 26 seasons, Carolina has won six division titles, including three consecutive NFC South division titles from 2013-15. The Panthers have played in 17 playoff games, winning two NFC Championships and appearing in Super Bowl XXXVIII and Super Bowl 50. David A. Tepper is the owner of the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers play their home games at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C., and recently joined in a community partnership with York County and the city of Rock Hill, S.C., to transition the team's headquarters to Rock Hill.
The Carolina Panthers Rock Hill Development is an innovative, mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly community anchored by the team’s practice facility, headquarters offices, and a sports/entertainment venue. Groundbreaking for the site commenced in June 2020 with the first phase opening planned for 2023.
A true destination site for the entire region, the development will place an emphasis on retail, entertainment and media productions, hospitality, employment, research and development, residential dwellings, indoor and outdoor recreation, and open space uses. Constructed on a 240-acre site adjacent to I-77, the development will initially include new headquarters offices; an indoor practice facility; outdoor practice fields; a scalable small stadium to host high school sports, concerts, festivals, etc.; an indoor facility to host games, concerts and corporate events; and a premier medical facility.
