Pull out your favorite jersey, throw on some face paint, and fire up the hibachi grill: Carolina Panthers season is upon us! Heading down to the stadium to cheer on the Panthers with 75,000 electric fans is always a blast. Tailgating before the game with friends, family, and other fans can be an equally fun part of the game day experience.
Given Bank of America Stadium's central location in Charlotte, figuring out where to park on game day can be a difficult task.
That's where we come in. Parking Panda allows Panthers fans to reserve guaranteed parking spots before they head to the stadium. With over 40 parking options to choose from, you'll be able to lock down that prime tailgating spot to toss the pigskin in or search for the cheapest parking option within easy walking distance of the stadium.

Season Outlook:The Panthers enter 2016 with an explosive group of talent looking to finish what they started last season after the Lombardi Trophy narrowly eluded their grasp during their Super Bowl appearance. With always smiling quarterback Cam Newton at the helm, the team's prospects for success are continually shimmering. A week one rematch against the Broncos in Denver should serve as a valid measuring stick for the 2016 Panthers.
