The Carolina Panthers have remained on the unlucky side this season. Baker Mayfield turned out as a bust, and the franchise lost Christian McCaffrey in a trade. But more troubles have been encircling them recently. The franchise’s incomplete structure in Rock Hill, South Carolina, would undergo demolition. The NFL fans are calling out the Panthers’ mega failure.
The Cardiac Cats had a new headquarters in Rock Hill, South Carolina building. The Building was at a 245-acre site visible from Interstate 77 and Mount Gallant Road. But they did not complete the structure as a franchise-owned firm, and GT Real Estate went bankrupt. The $800 Million facility remained in a half-finished condition until now.
The panthers’ dream project is going to dust
After several legal troubles and halted construction, Rock Hill city has begun demolishing the Panthers’ incomplete facility. The site included the franchise’s headquarters and a practice facility. But now, everything will settle to dust. Interestingly, the demolition work is free of cost, but the company would keep the steel and remaining materials.

The Panthers acknowledged the death with owners Nicole and David Tepper, sharing their thoughts. They shared, “Jerry Richardson’s contributions to professional football in the Carolina’s are historic. With the arrival of the Panthers in 1995, he changed the landscape of sports in the region and gave the NFL fans here a team to call their own. He was incredibly gracious to me when I purchased the team, and for that I am thankful.”
