The Panthers are wrapping up the first phase of a $125 million renovation of Bank of America Stadium, which has been fitted with four new escalators, two new ribbon boards, an improved sound system and a pair of massive videoboards.

The first phase of the three-phase renovation cost $65 million.

The public's first chance to see the upgrades will be July 25 at the Panthers' annual FanFest, which was moved up a week to accommodate the Aug. 2 soccer match between Liverpool FC and AC Milan. The "friendly" is part of the Guinness International Champions Cup tournament.

The Panthers report to Spartanburg for the start of training camp July 26.
