In July 2018, David Tepper invested $2.2 billion of his own capital to acquire the Panthers. The highly successful investor and philanthropist is committed to making the Panthers to winners on the field and in the community.
The first infrastructure project of this new era for the Panthers opened. The Atrium Health Dome is an indoor practice facility to help the team win and also a game day destination for fans.
