CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) - A deal could be inching closer to bringing the Carolina Panthers practice facility permanently to South Carolina.
The Post and Courier reports that the Panthers plan to build a team headquarters and practice facility in York County. One of the top locations on the team's list is is the site of the Charlotte Knight's former stadium and Hornets practice facility off Interstate 77 in Fort Mill, SC.
The Panthers current practice fields are located in uptown Charlotte, across of the street from Bank of America Stadium. The possible new location would be 15 miles away.
If the team were to move, they would take advantage of South Carolinas lower taxes and economic incentives.
The Panthers new facility and corporate offices are being modeled after a complex built by the Dallas Cowboys, The Post and Courier reports.
