Panthers’ Steve Smith opening sports training facility

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith and two other NFL athletes have announced a partnership with OrthoCarolina to open a D1 Sports Training facility in Matthews this spring.

The 20,000-square-foot sports training and therapy facility, at 1205 Mann Drive, will have a combination indoor/outdoor turf field, collegiate-style weight room and physical therapy clinic geared toward athletes and athletic injuries.

The training facility will be the 24th nationwide, and the second in North Carolina, opened by parent company D1 Sports Holdings LLC. D1 Raleigh opened in 2011. Smith also co-owns a D1 facility that opened in Greenville, S.C., in 2012.

D1 operates 20 U.S. locations with professional athlete, sports medicine and therapy partners. Other pro athletes who co-own facilities include Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers, Tim Tebow, Jason Witten and Herschel Walker.
