    The Carolina Panthers' state-of-the-art team headquarters and practice facility is beginning to take shape. Just over the South Carolina state line in Rock Hill, steel support beams are emerging from the ground on a rocky, dusty 240-acre plot of land. The Panthers will continue to play home games at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte but practices, training camp and everything else club-related will be at The Rock. Completion is scheduled for 2023.
