Carolina Panthers: The work starts on the practice field bubble

The Carolina Panthers have started a temporary exercise facility behind the Bank of America Stadium with a climate-controlled bubble, a team spokesman confirmed on Wednesday.

The efforts that began this week were first noticed by the nearby Charlotte Giustano, who sent the observer photos of the site when the artificial grass was dug up on a field and the turf on the two fields with natural grass were uprooted.

Work on the site began at the Carolina Panthers practice grounds in preparation for the construction of a practice balloon, a team spokesperson confirmed Wednesday.

The spokesperson could not confirm a timeline for the construction of the bubble. But Panthers owner David Tepper said he wanted the team to practice under the covered facility by the preseason of 2019, which starts in August.

Carolina was one of the few teams who did not have an indoor practice facility during the 2018 season, sometimes during practice games in Charlotte Convention Center ballrooms during bad weather.

The bubble will be a temporary improvement, as Tepper's infrastructure plans will be revealed in the next 5-10 years.

South Carolina officials hope the Panthers will build a long-term, multi-use center, have changed the Rock Hill area headquarters and campus, and even changed state tax laws to Woo Tepper and his team.

On Tuesday, the House and Senate financial departments in the S.C. legislature adopted identical accounts to provide the Panthers workload and development credits as the team moved its activities to York County. The proposal would also prevent the team from having to pay city taxes and business permits, according to a report from the state newspaper.

Tepper and his staff met South Carolina Gov earlier this month. Henry McMaster. McMaster also confirmed that in recent months the parties have a series of & # 39; secret encounters & # 39; had been organized with regard to year-round practice facilities and a new team headquarters.

For the near future, the Panthers will practice in the bubble.
