Riot Rewind week ending 7/14/17

The big news out of the Panthers this week is that tickets to Fan Fest on August 4th will cost $5 each with a limit of 6 tickets per household. The $5 cost will go to the Carolina Panthers Charities, benefiting charities in North and South Carolina. Still the $5 fee was not well received by some, for an event that in the past has been free. Last year the Panthers gave away free tickets online which overwhelmed the TicketMaster site and the previous year record attendance was recorded at Fan Fest. In recent years the Panthers have moved Fan Fest from a Saturday afternoon practice to Friday nights, featuring videos, performances by the Top Cats cheerleaders, Purrcussion, Panthers practice and a fireworks and laser show.

Again, Fan Fest is Friday August 4th from 6:30PM to 9:30PM. Tickets will be made available next Saturday, July 22nd at 10AM. Get the link for tickets by going to and clicking on Fast Fest Tickets in the Hot Topics section.
