Carolina Panthers Announce 2019 Training Camp Schedule, Joint Practices With Bills
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Carolina Panthers are headed back to Wofford College for training camp and are scheduled to participate in two joint practices with the Buffalo Bills, the team announced on Wednesday.
The Panthers and Bills will hold the joint practices on August 13th and 14th, the final two days of camp, ahead of the preseason game between the teams at Bank of America Stadium on Friday, August 16th.
“The joint practices are an opportunity for us to get some quality work done,” said head coach Ron Rivera. “We’ve done it before and had good success. They are high intensity workouts and give our players different looks against different people. There is a little bit more of a challenge, especially for the quarterbacks. I’m pretty excited about that.”
Carolina has held joint practices at Wofford College before with the Detroit Lions in 2000 and the Miami Dolphins in 2015.
The Panthers plan to hold 14 practices that are open to the public. Training begins on Thursday, July 25th with the annual kickoff party before practice.
Fans can celebrate the opening of training camp at Wofford’s Gibbs Stadium from 4 p.m. until 6:30 p.m., before practice begins.
The event is free and will include performances by the TopCats, Sir Purr, PurrCussion and the Black & Blue Crew, Mayors’ Ball Delivery, face painting, food, interactive games, sponsor displays and more.
The Panthers will come back to Charlotte on Friday, August 2nd for the annual Fan Fest presented by Daimler at Bank of America Stadium.
The Fan Fest is a family friendly night of football, fireworks and fun as the Panthers debut in front of the home crowd at Bank of America Stadium.
Gates open at 6 p.m. with the Panthers practicing on the stadium field and performances by the TopCats, Sir Purr, PurrCussion and the Black & Blue Crew before a fireworks and laser show.
Fan Fest tickets go on sale Friday, July 12th and are $5. Proceeds from Fan Fest go towards Carolina Panthers Charities and their mission to help communities across the Carolinas.
