THE CAROLINA PANTHERS' NEW STADIUM
OFFICIAL NAME: Ericsson Stadium
COST: $187 million
MAN-HOURS OF LABOR: 1.8 million
THE LOWDOWN: Located in downtown Charlotte, the new home of the Panthers includes 137 private suites, 23 "family" restrooms (where parents may take kids of either sex) and 412 concessions areas, roughly double the league norm. But perhaps the stadium's most impressive feature is the Panthers' locker room (above), which, at 45x18 yards, has nearly the same dimensions as an Arena Football field. Recently, when it rained as Carolina was preparing for a walk-through workout, coach Dom Capers joked that "we might as well just hold practice in the locker room."
