CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Carolina Panthers are making more improvements at Bank of America Stadium.

The Panthers hosted a tour of the stadium and its improvements Tuesday. Those changes include walk-through body scanners at each entrance, explosives trained canine units and improved Wi-Fi service.

The changes are part of a five-year, public-private financing agreement the Panthers agreed to with the city of Charlotte in 2013. Scott Paul is the executive director of stadium operations and says the current improvements this offseason cost $26 million. Paul says about $18 million is coming from the city.

The improvements will be seen July 30 for a soccer match. The Panthers Fan Fest is Aug. 5.

The Panthers are installing about 95 walk-through body scanners at each stadium entrance, doing away with the hand-held scanners and pat-downs.
