Stadium Accessibility | Carolina Panthers - Panthers.com
Bank of America Stadium takes pride in providing service to all guests including those requiring accommodations. Bank of America Stadium has been designed to provide easy access for guests with disabilities. Our stadium recognizes the needs of persons with disabilities, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and continues to make every effort to comply with both ADA and state accessibility mandates. In addition, Bank of America Stadium strives to further accommodate the individual needs of guests with disabilities.
Accessible Parking and Shuttle
Bank of America Stadium does not have reserved handicap parking. Carolinas Medical Center, located at 1000 Blythe Boulevard in Charlotte, provides a game day shuttle for guests with disabilities for Panthers games only. An accessible parking placard is required to use the service. Patrons using the service should park in Lot B at Carolinas Medical Center. It is the first lot on the right off Medical Center Drive, which is the main entrance to Carolinas Medical Center. Tailgating is not permitted in this lot. A police officer will be on duty in the lot to provide security.
You and your companions will be shuttled to the intersection of Mint, Stonewall and Graham streets adjacent to Bank of America Stadium. Guests will receive a wristband that will allow them to enter the stadium through the Team Store entrance after being screened in the Silver Club area. Guests should return to this same location at the end of the game to be shuttled back. The cost of the service is $40 per vehicle and begins approximately two hours prior to kickoff.
THIS SERVICE IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR PANTHERS GAMES (DOES NOT INCLUDE FAN FEST)
