Friday night’s Fan Fest at The Bank drew in a record 36,315 fans, according to sources.  The initial practice at Wofford College in Spartanburg brought in 17,213 on Saturday.  Despite heat, the fans want to see their Panthers before September.  Lots of painted faces, jerseys (that weren’t an opposing team), and smiles were seen throughout Charlotte and Spartanburg all weekend.

The buzz is all over the airwaves and the players have taken notice.  The players are staying longer after practice sessions to sign autographs and displaying lots of positive comments on social media outlets.
