During North Carolina Central University’s board of trustees meeting late last month, an important item of interest regarding the football team’s future schedule was announced, concurrent with renovations set to take place for a local National Football League stadium.

Bank of America Stadium, longtime home of the Carolina Panthers, is set to receive upgrades following an agreement with Tepper Sports (the Panthers’ ownership group) and the city of Charlotte, meaning the Eagles will possibly play an HBCU Classic at the stadium as soon as 2028.

Because of the agreement, “Tepper Sport(s) has agreed to allow North Carolina Central to play in 2028 and 2029 in the HBCU Football Classic,” a speaker at the meeting stated.

In June, the Panthers and Charlotte agreed to an 800-million-dollar renovation project to keep the team in the Queen City for at least the next 20 years. As of publication, the potential HBCU Classic is unnamed, and no opponent has been identified for the Eagles.

This would mark North Carolina Central’s third and fourth such games at Bank of America, as the 2022 Aggie-Eagle Classic with North Carolina A&T was played at BOA and will take place there again in 2027.
