The city of Charlotte recently approved $800 million in renovations for Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers for nearly three decades. It signals a guarantee that the team will remain in North Carolina for decades to come. 

It also could signal the start of a new wave of NFL stadiums, either for renovations or brand-new buildings. NFL stadiums are some of the more impressive architectural and technological marvels of modern times. Teams that don’t keep up are losing out. 

Which cities and teams could step up next? Bookies.com veteran oddsmaker Adam Thompson has NFL future odds on which NFL teams could be playing in different home conditions shortly.

The Future Of NFL Stadiums

The Tennessee Titans have already greenlit a new Nissan Stadium, built from scratch next door to the current one. It will have a roof so it can host events such as the Super Bowl, the Final Four and probably a few massive country music concerts in the winter. Ground broke on the new palace in February and is expected to be completed in 2027

The Jacksonville Jaguars plan to turn EverBank Stadium into the Stadium of the Future in time for the 2028 NFL season. The Jaguars have been favorites for any possible NFL relocation efforts, especially in London. A new stadium keeps the team in north Florida and limits London home games to one per year. The Jacksonville City Council approved plans on June 25. If approved by the NFL this fall, construction is planned to start in February. The Jaguars would need to find a new home stadium for 2027. 

The Chicago Bears plan to bid farewell to Soldier Field, the NFL’s oldest stadium, and build a roofed palace adjacent to the current home field and, like Nashville, could bring a Super Bowl and the Final Four to the Windy City for the first time. 

With the stadium hoped to be built for the 2029 season, Chicago would need no hurdles to open the doors in five years. As of now, it’s only in the planning stages and hasn’t been formally approved by the city or the NFL. Chicago and Illinois governments aren’t exactly known for progress (in fact, Chicago and Illinois are always among the most-corrupt local governments), and the Bears’ plan, which includes billions in taxpayer funds, is facing real opposition at both levels

The Kansas City Chiefs want a new stadium, or at least massive renovations to aging Arrowhead Stadium. But KC voters crushed a proposal to use tax dollars to find a new stadium for the MLB’s Royals and renovations to the Chiefs’ home. 

A new, domed stadium for the Chiefs has been designed by the same company that designed the Raiders’ Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and the new proposals in Chicago and Nashville. But it may take a move out of the state of Missouri (perhaps to adjacent Kansas City, Kansas) to get the ball rolling.

New Washington Commanders owner Josh Harris wants a new stadium for his team. There have been a few renderings but very few concrete details, compared to other team projects. Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia are all reportedly vying to be the host locale for a new NFL stadium. Commissioner Roger Goodell has stated his preference is on the site of the old RFK Stadium, just two miles from the U.S. Capitol. RFK was recently greenlit for demolition.

The Carolina Panthers got the green light for major renovations in and around Bank of America Stadium. Renovations are expected to be wrapped up in 2029.City council members insinuated a possible distrust of Panthers owner David Tepper, but looked past it to ensure the Panthers remain in the Queen City for the long term. 

The Cleveland Browns hare authenticated renderings on a proposed new stadium in Brook Park, 17 miles from the current stadium on the shores of Lake Erie. The team is just beginning the process, so the odds of it being done in five years seem far-fetched but not impossible. 

After already approved renovations and new stadiums are completed, the Browns and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will own the two oldest stadiums that haven’t received a massive facelift in recent years. There don’t appear to be any real plans in Tampa to do so. 

The Buffalo Bills are getting a new stadium. It’s been worked on for a year and is expected to be ready for the 2026 season. No odds were set for the new Highmark Stadium. The same goes for the Baltimore Ravens, who are putting $600 million into M&T Bank Stadium over the next three seasons.
