COLUMBIA, SC (WSPA) – The Carolina Panthers are considering a major move into South Carolina.
Gov. Henry McMaster in a news conference Wednesday morning announced a plan to potentially move the NFL team’s headquarters into York and Lancaster counties.
The governor, along with other lawmakers, met with Panthers’ owner David Tepper and other team officials Wednesday morning about building a $150 million facility in South Carolina.
In addition to offices and practice fields, there are plans to build a sport medical facility, along with convention space, hotels and restaurants in that area.
The governor said if a deal is made, 150 Panthers employees would be in South Carolina.
The Panthers’ training camp is still scheduled for this summer at Wofford College.
