SPARTANBURG, S.C. – The Carolina Panthers will hold their 21st summer training camp at Wofford College through Aug. 20. Practices are free and open to the public.

"Panthers practices are a terrific opportunity to get close to the action and see your favorite Panthers players begin the 2015 season, says Riley Fields, Panthers director of community relations. “We are very excited to be back at Wofford and in Spartanburg."

The camp has worked to enhance the first-class experience fans have enjoyed since 1995. With the help of Lowe’s, new fan amenities have been implemented and the grounds beautified to create a pristine environment.

One week into the Panthers’ stay at Wofford, the team will return to Charlotte for Fan Fest at Bank of America Stadium on Friday, Aug. 7, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Following the first preseason game against the Buffalo Bills on Aug. 14, the Panthers will wrap up training camp with joint practices back at Wofford with the Miami Dolphins on Aug. 19 and 20. The two teams will play each other at Bank of America Stadium in Week 2 of the preseason on Aug. 22.

Academy Sports + Outdoor again is presenting Panthers Pals, a special experience especially for children. Panthers Pals offers five lucky children between the ages of 6 and 13 an opportunity to watch part of practice from field level and then spend time with a player afterward. They can register to be a Panthers Pal at the Academy Sports tent at the entrance to the practice fields.
