Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper says he is no longer considering building a domed stadium in downtown Charlotte. 

Tepper had said in 2019 he hoped to build a retractable roof stadium in Charlotte within the next 10 years to attract other major sporting events. But he has backed off that idea after the coronavirus pandemic turned the sports world upside down, prompting teams to limit seating for fans last year. 

Tepper said there is “no way" he would build a domed stadium in Charlotte in the post-COVID-19 era. 

He offered no update on a timetable for a new stadium, saying that will largely depend on outside funding.
