  Rather than raise taxes to help pay for Bank of America Stadium renovations, the city of Charlotte could cover almost all of the team’s $125 million request by using Convention Center money.

New estimates from the city show that a Convention Center fund could finance $110 million in debt.


  The Carolina Panthers asked the Charlotte City Council in closed session late Monday for $125 million to help pay for renovating Bank of America Stadium, according to two sources.
