Even though BOA is now one of the older stadiums in the NFL, the Panther organization has not allowed it to become shabby. Each season I am pleased to see fresh paint, updated restroom fixtures, new food and beverage vendors, and other touches that let me know that the team values the fans. The stadium has always banned smoking except in designated areas and does not serve alcohol after the end of the third quarter. Our seats are in the top level, but even with my arthritic knees, the ramps to the top level are usually an easy walk. On those occasions when my knees have been uncooperative, and once when I had surgery on an ankle, there are elevators available. New security protocols this year mean no large purses or tote bags and most stadium cushions are no longer allowed, so be sure to check the team website for specifics before you go.
