The Panthers will make their first appearance at Bank of America Stadium since winning the NFC Championship when they take the field at Fan Fest on Friday, August 5.
Admission is free and a reserved ticket will be required for entry. Due to overwhelming demand last year and general precautions for fan safety, all patrons must have a ticket to attend the event. Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis beginning July 22 at 10 a.m.
*Fan Fest Tickets Sold Out – All tickets to Fan Fest have been reserved*
The free tickets were made available Friday morning on Ticketmaster, and approximately 60,000 were claimed, with a few single seats remaining. The limit was set at approximately 60,000 due to space requirements for a post-practice fireworks show.
Last year’s Fan Fest crowd was larger than anticipated, creating challenges in managing the event. This year’s event was ticketed with reserve seating to ensure a safer and more enjoyable fan experience at the Stadium.
Measures were taken to prevent re-sales on secondary markets, and registered users were permitted to reserve no more than six tickets.
Fans in attendance will receive a 2016 team roster photo card with a 2016 schedule as well as a gate giveaway. Stadium gates open at 6 p.m. with performances by the TopCats, Sir Purr, PurrCussion and Black & Blue Crew. Practice begins at 7:30 p.m. and will include individual drills as well as seven-on-seven, special teams and team periods. The event will be capped with a concert by Sol Fusion, and spectacular fireworks and laser show.
Transparent, plastic, vinyl or PVC bags smaller than 12″ x 6″ x 12″ will be allowed after inspection.
