CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - Fan Fest will be a great opportunity for Panthers fans to get their first look at the new stadium makeover.
“We renovated the entire 100 level. We completely gutted and renovated the entire 300 and 400 levels,” said the Panthers’ Scott Paul. He says more seating was a big priority for fans.
“If you’d been up here before we had a main grand staircase, we did that to add more seating,” he said. “We brought some community tables in – craft beer areas now more seating for our fans.”
There will be much more craft beer for sale – more food options available -- and Paul says you shouldn’t have wait long.
“We wanted to increase the points of sale getting people thru lines quicker,” Paul said.
On the field, you’ll notice the turf was completely redone.
Tickets for Fan Fest are still available, more than 50,000 have been sold – limit six per household – on the Panthers website.
I found some single tickets only on the lower level going for $4.50, not $5.
With online sites like Craigslist, be wary of tickets being sold for Fan Fest. Some are listed for over $100.
