Bank of America Stadium Inclement Weather Policy | Carolina Panthers -

Inclement Weather Policy

Due to the nature of pop-up storms and their unpredictability throughout the summer in Charlotte, we want to be sure you are aware and can prepare for moments of inclement weather close to event time.

If lightning is detected within an 8-mile radius of Bank of America Stadium, the venue will enter a Shelter in Place protocol. This protocol will remain in effect until there is no lightning detected within an 8-mile radius of the stadium for 30 minutes.

If you are outside the stadium when shelter in place takes effect:

  • Please seek cover immediately.
  • Adequate cover options include vehicles, parking decks, and buildings; the best option is the one closest to you.

If you are inside the stadium when shelter in place takes effect:

  • The seating bowl and field will be evacuated.
  • Stadium staff will help direct fans to the nearest and safest shelter.

If this Shelter in Place surpasses the scheduled game start time, the Carolina Panthers will determine a new start time which will be communicated out to fans.

Weather updates will be sent out to fans via email, the Panthers app, and the @Panthers Twitter account. To ensure you stay informed, make sure to do the following:
