CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Charlotte city leaders are reportedly weighing major changes to Bank of America Stadium. City leaders spent hours in a closed session where they reportedly discussed millions of dollars in renovations. Eyewitness News tried to stop and interview multiple council members and city officials and not a single one would confirm on camera the nature of the closed session on Monday night. In the past, city leaders have discussed the need for changes at Bank of America Stadium, which is 17 years old.
After the Democratic National Convention, other city officials spoke out about the need for those renovations, especially if Charlotte would ever host a Super Bowl game. A month later some city leaders toured Met Life Stadium in New Jersey which will host the Superbowl next year, but the question has always been who will foot the bill. On Monday night leaders reportedly talked about different options for payment. Not only did officials refuse to confirm the details of the session, but wouldn't even talk about the future of the stadium in general. "I can't talk about anything tonight. I'll go to the meeting and see what happens," said Mayor Anthony Foxx. Council Member James Mitchell, who is the Chairman of Economic Development, provided one clue on Monday. He told reporters, "The Panthers are going to the Superbowl. You heard it here first."
