Bank of America Stadium has been home to the NFL's Carolina Panthers since 1994. Located in Charlotte, North Carolina, the 73,778-seat stadium is a focal point of the downtown scene. The venue has gone through a couple name changes after being known as Carolinas Stadium during planning stages, as well as Ericsson Stadium from 1996-2004. Before bank of America acquired naming rights to the stadium in 2005, telecom company LM Ericsson purchased a 10-year agreement valued at $25 million dollars. Interestingly enough, the stadium is referred back to its original name of Carolinas Stadium when FIFA events are hosted. Bank of America Stadium set the precedence for the way NFL stadiums would be funded in the future, as most of the money came from Personal Seat Licenses which also helped to bring an NFL team to Charlotte in the first place. Because the venue was so ahead of its time, it has yet to be renovated despite being the 11th oldest stadium in the NFL. Despite not serving as the home to a college football team, Bank of America Stadium is the current site of the ACC Championship and the Belk Bowl. The ACC Championship will continue thru 2013 while the Belk Bowl, formerly known as the Meineke Car Care Bowl, will continue on longer. Some other notable events that have taken place at Bank of America stadium were the 1999 and 2000 NCAA Men's Soccer Championship and a pair of 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup first round matches.
