Panthers unveil new uniform, set stage for bigger reveal
The Carolina Panthers had a different look about them on Friday night…
As a new era begins under owner David Tepper there have been few noticeable changes. The Carolina Panthers did have music throughout most portions of practice at training camp but this was more of a result from coach Ron Rivera forgetting to turn it off than it was having a new person in charge.
However, there have been personnel shifts inside the front office as Tepper strategically places his own impressions over the organization. On Friday night, the Panthers debut at Bank of America Stadium, a few more differences appeared while setting the stage for an exciting reveal at the home opener in just a few weeks.
The Panthers unveiled a new uniform combination, never before worn by the team. Already scheduled to wear their blue alternate jerseys against the Miami Dolphins, Carolina elected to go with white pants as opposed to their usual silver color.

Creating a new look, combined with black socks the Panthers have also been building the suspense behind what will appear at midfield when the regular season kicks off against the Dallas Cowboys.
Against Miami, midfield was left vacant but the team, and coach Rivera, have been alluding to something special taking place very soon. Tepper has also been keeping tabs on the #PanthersLogoChallenge and took it a step further before the two teams kicked off last night.
The Panthers, coaches and Tepper have done a phenomenal job of building the suspense as many expect the Panthers logo to finally adorn the field when Week 1 of the regular season arrives. A welcome change from the NFL shield, even quarterback Cam Newton, linebacker Thomas Davis and running back Christian McCaffrey recently shared their opinions on the subject (spoiler alert – they want it).
Let the countdown begin – 22 days to go.
