Charlotte hosts 3-day celebration for Carolina Panthers


CHARLOTTE, N.C. - On the last day of the year, Charlotteans can agree on being grateful for one thing; the Carolina Panthers are heading back to the playoffs.

The Queen City is ready to pump up its NFC South Champions with a marathon pep rally leading up to the NFC Divisional Playoff game Sunday, Jan. 12, at Bank of America Stadium.

On Friday, Jan. 10, EPICENTRE transforms into Panthers Fan Headquarters as day one of the three-day celebration kicks off. To thank of this one-of-a-kind team, EPICENTRE created a 4 feet by 8 feet spirit panel, where fans can leave a congratulatory message, words of encouragement and of course, display Panthers pride. Starting at 8 p.m., EPICENTRE kicks off its Miller Lite Playoff Pep Rally and Crawl as Watch Party Headquarters takes over. Those who register for the Miller Lite Playoff Pep Rally and Crawl will automatically be entered to win tickets to the Panthers playoff game, and have a bird's eye view of the action from the Miller Lite Box Suite.

Saturday, Jan. 11, day two of the pep rally continues at noon with a Carolina Panthers Carnival. Soak in the atmosphere of fandemonium while enjoying strolling street performers, games, Panthers Prize Pack valued at $500, mouth-watering food vendors, face painters and live music.

As the Cardiac Cats take on the first playoff game at home Sunday, Jan. 12, cheer them to victory inside any one of EPICENTRE's numerous restaurants, bars or even its bowling alley. Throughout the weekend, EPICENTRE is also giving away Keep Pounding Spirit Towels while supplies last.
