What Are Bank Of America Visitors Saying?

  • One South Carolina resident who got into football after his wife egged him on says that he's been there for the Gamecocks season opener as well as several other Panthers games. In terms of his experience, he says that the slow security process caused him to miss the opening sequences.
  •  In terms of concessions, reviewers say that you'll find the typical stadium food- soft drinks, beer, fast food, all of which is fairly overpriced. 
  • On the plus side, a Charlotte area resident says that you can actually bring in sealed, non-flavored water bottles.
  • Another Charlotte tourist who flew in and booked a hotel so he could catch a sporting event compliments the recent addition of escalators- they make maneuvering through the sports complex much more seamless. In addition, this football fan tells us that they recently enhanced their food selection- you can find craft beer stations and order delicious plates of barbecue nachos. 
  • Another tourist who visited the venue says that even in the cheap seats that are higher up it feels as though you get an immersive experience- especially with the large stadium video displays.
  • A Canadian tourist who flew in to visit the stadium for a preseason football game says that it was pretty easy to find parking, the seating provided solid viewing angles from every perspective, and overall it was an awesome NFL stadium with the typically overpriced food concessions.
  • Another Bank of America stadium visitor who bought tickets on NFL Ticket Exchange for upper deck stadium seating says that getting into the game was a huge mess because of the slow security process. An unexpected surprise was the free Wi-Fi Internet. 
  • A female football fan chimed in with her perspective, telling us that the women's restrooms were plentiful and clean. She also observes to us that if you don't want to get roasted in the summertime, you should choose seats that are located in the south, home side of the Bank of America Stadium. Additionally, echoing another reviewer's observation, the escalators really help move people throughout the stadium more effectively- this 2016 renovation was much appreciated by many football fans.
  • Another NFL fan who flew in from Canada and booked a nearby hotel advises that you show up early before the game- perhaps by an hour. This means that you'll get through security much faster, get some food at the concession stands before the lines become terrible and avoid the congestion on the escalators that occurs closer to game time.
  • Another good tip is to minimize your carrying bags (anything larger than a woman's clutch purse)- leaving them at home means you won't have to go through the bag line which will surely expedite entry into this sports arena. 
  • A soccer fan from out of town flew in to catch a soccer game- they were annoyed that security was so stringent regarding checking bags, but they were glad that they could bring in their own water bottles with the labels torn off.
  • Another Carolina Panthers fan told us that staff was friendly, bathrooms plentiful, though the price of parking and food were exorbitant. Leaving the stadium cannot also be a bit of a hassle, a North Charleston resident says- though the thoroughfares are pretty spacious which helps to expedite the crowd flow out to their cars.
  • Another football fan brought up that he had his food confiscated. He criticized this policy because people with dietary restrictions can't necessarily eat the fast food within the stadium and require different and healthier options to accommodate medical conditions. 
  • Another reviewer who brought an elderly relative to the game as a surprise birthday gift says that when they got there they realized that the seating was not handicap accessible. On the plus side, the stadium staff were able to relocate them. Another interesting tidbit, one reviewer observes that alcohol sales end after the third quarter. Yet another out-of-town football fan says tailgating options were a little bit limited because of space considerations outside the stadium.
