Carolina Panthers consider moving some offices, facilities to South Carolina

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WNCN) – The Carolina Panthers could be kicking off a new move to the Palmetto State.

Wednesday, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster announced a plan to possibly move the team’s headquarters to York and Lancaster Counties. 

According to WSPA, lawmakers and team officials, including owner David Tepper, met about building a $150 million facility. Plans include building a sport medical facility, convention space, hotels, and restaurants, along with offices and practice fields. 

McMaster said if a deal is made, 150 employees would be in the state. 

“This is the kind of thing we’ve done before in South Carolina with great success,” McMaster said. “Bringing exciting, new ventures. Whether it’s manufacturing, or other things, to South Carolina.” 

However, legislation has to be passed that defines what a professional sports team is in South Carolina before the transition can take place. 

According to WSPA, the House and Senate both filed bills to lay the groundwork for the move to take place. 

The Panthers training camp is still set to be held this summer at Wofford College.
