Panthers, Fans Arrive In London

LONDON — The Panthers arrived in London Thursday morning and there’s no time for jet lag. The team left Charlotte Wednesday evening and soon upon landing they began team activities.

Following a team walk through, that Christian McCaffrey was a full participant in, the Panthers participated in an NFL Play 60 event.

Efe Obada was the star as many of the kids went up to talk to the defensive lineman.

“When we were walking through the airport, several people recognized him and called out his name,”  head coach Ron Rivera said. “Efe is kind of a shy guy by nature. Just seeing his reaction, he just kind of smiled and you could tell he was blushing.”

The team will have a full practice on Friday.
