Awesome to hear. I think there's a number of foreign fans on the reddit.com panthers section (http://www.reddit.com/r/panthers) mostly from England and Australia if I remember right.

Yeah, Football is getting bigger in England, also thanks to Godell and his London policy. But he leaves out us guys in Germany and the Netherlands, where most NFLE teams were located back then. Football in Germany is unbelievable small, a lot smaller than soccer in the US. But the funny thing is that millions of germans are watching the SB, without having any idea what is going on. They are staying up till 3 in the morning. But that doesn´t help much.

Canadian Panther fan, and I know there's a bunch of us in Canada because I see a fair amount of Panther gear / jerseys here. I became a fan during the 2003-2004 season when they were making their run as the Cardiac Cats. Chris Berman and the whole ''Daylight come and me wanna Delhomme'' sealed it for me.

Hi
I'm from Bristol England
Got hooked on football when Channel 4 started showing games in 1983 watching Riggins & the Redskins
Started following Raiders after visiting L A but they went back to Oakland & I watched football when i could without following any particular team.
Decided to follow the Panthers the day the franchise was announced and watch streams if i can or follow
play by play on NFL
Been to a couple of games at wembley but would rather follow the Panther games.
Don't post on here much , but visit most days for the local gossip and opinions.

I watched the Eagles/Patriots superbowl at an Irish pub in Nuremberg. I was surprised how much they got into the game.
They even stood for our national anthem.

That was a tough year to start watching Panthers football.

It's always great to hear from fans that follow our team from far away. We seem to take being close to our team for granted. You guys must be great fans to follow the team even when it is somewhat difficult to do so. I kinda feel the same way watching Liverpool but thats because I'm not a saturday/sunday morning person. Cheers to our International supporters.

What does it say that I live less than three hours away from Charlotte, and I can't even make the same claim?

Panther fan from Australia here.

I started following Carolina thanks to Madden 2001 and a random team selection in my franchise, that's seriously the only reason.

I've had Gamepass the past few seasons, it makes watching us so much easier, although it's still 5am starts on Monday mornings to catch the game live. Primetime games are right in the middle of work, they're at least on cable here so I spend my work days avoiding the result and get home to watch it.

My girlfriend and I were just talking about coming to America in the next few years, I'm gonna so much time watching college ball and at BoA.

Not sure I qualify as "international" as I am a Raleigh native, but I've been in S. Korea for the past 8 years. Been with the team since its birth, although I missed a few years when I first came to Korea and couldn't find a reliable way to stream/watch the games.

Still wearing an old worn out Panthers sweater I got for Christmas like 12 years ago, still have a Panthers hat signed by Jordan Gross at a fan event just after he was drafted,..and still talking poo to the few Eagles/Saints*** fans I run across over here~~

No english studies, all learning by doing. Best way to pick up things IMO. Also good german skills you show.

Fan from Saltillo, Mexico. I have followed the team since 95 but it was until the 2001 campaign that I started to watch games thanks to my dad's directv. I had my first panthers gear back in 1997, a hoodie that helped me go though the cold winter of missouri (went to a military school there for a year)

I'm American and grew up in the Charlotte area, but have lived in Amsterdam now for 2.5 years.

I use GamePass as well, and strangely enough, it was free here in the Netherlands this year. Considering how the season has gone, I'm [b]really[/b] glad I didn't have to shell out the money.

I'm Somalian but grew up in the Netherlands. I started watching NFL around 2007 but never religiously. I have family in the DC area and they're all diehard Redskins fans. But I didn't have a team that I rooted for and started watching college football 2010. And started following Auburn because they had the most crazy and entertaining season. I liked Cam Newton as a player. I started following the Panthers after they drafted him. I wanted to root for a team and why not a team that was down and was going up with a great quarterback. I watch the games with Gamepass for free. The early games are great. I watch the night games the next morning with Gamepass but in a condensed form.
