The Panthers break camp, perhaps for the last time in the Upstate

Will this be the last time the Carolina Panthers spend their summer in Spartanburg?

For the 25th time, the Carolina Panthers have wrapped up training camp in Spartanburg but there is a chance that will be the last time Wofford College will serve in this same capacity.

New owner David Tepper is expected to move the training camp to the soon-to-be-built facility in Rock Hill which is scheduled to be completed in 2021. But the 2020 training camp site remains a mystery as the 25-year contract between the team and Wofford College expires.

When former owner Jerry Richardson brought the Panthers to his alma mater for training camp, it resulted in a massive makeover for Wofford College with new practice fields, locker rooms and offices. But with a new owner looking to put his stamp on the franchise, there is a very good chance the Panthers have held their last practice in the Sparkle City.
