UPDATED

 

Got my tickets, hotel and flight. 

 

I'll be sitting at the top like a boss Section 543 Row 34.

 

I'll be staying at the Blake Hotel in Uptown Charlotte less than a mile away from BoA.

 

I'll be flying in Sunday the night before the game at 3pm. 

 

If anyone wants to show me and my girl around Charlotte the night before and hit some bars and watch the games PM me and I'll give you my cell. PUMPED!

 

 

 

First ever time in Charlotte as well as North Carolina. Only got to see my Panthers play in New York and Mass. Now I'll be coming down with my girlfriend who is a Pat's fan as well as my cousin and her fiancee who is a Pat's fan as well. I have a ton of questions. Places to stay for cheap? Thinking of flying in Sunday and staying for two nights. Also how much can I expect to pay for MNF tickets? Seats that are good but not too expensive? Will I be able to attend the Huddle tailgate with Pat's fans and walk out alive? Any information would be great! Thanks and see you this season for the first time ever, I'm looking forward to putting names to faces. This is SBVG btw.

I'm 22 years old btw and everyone with me will be between 22 and 25. I'd love to go out the night before and see the city so if you want to go on a Sunday bar crawl let me know!

It's hard keeping track of all you fugers. I can't remember who is who half the time. Then again, I don't remember much of anything ever anyways.

I would say stay at Aloft. Its at the epicentre, where there is a good bit of bars and food.

No rooms at Aloft and many of the other center city hotels. I got one at Holiday Inn a few weeks ago. Holiday Inn, Ritz, Hilton Garden and a few others still have rooms.

I may just book one of those $50 a night motel rooms through Expedia.

What about the Residence Inn on Mint St?  It's right near the stadium, good locale.

I'm curious about how you became a big Panther fan when you have never even been in the state. Obviously that's not a prerequisite but we ain't talking about the Cowboys here. Panther fanbase is pretty regional I would imagine.

ticket prices I have seen for this game range from $135 (upper deck end zone) to $500 (row one on the 50 behind the panthers bench).  basically 3 to 4 times face value.  I'd say good luck finding tickets, but your bringing the enemy with you.

Section 543 Row 34. Heard there's not a bad seat in the house.

I also want to hear the story of how you became a Panthers fan even though you have never been to NC.

My best friend and I grew up with our parents being huge Giant's fans but we never were crazy about them and we just liked certain players. This was back in 05 when I was in high school. We both loved Steve Smith & Julius Peppers so we decided to be Panther's fans.

Well good for you on keeping your allegiance to the Panthers after that dbag left for Chicago.

The fact that you are still a Panthers fan even through the hard times gives me a lot of respect for you.

Can't wait to meet you guys....have you checked the Courtyard by Marriott on S. Tryon Street? I'm sure it's a little pricy but our tailgate is right across the street and its close to the stadium and nightlife.....but if you are on a serious budget there is a Days Inn on North Tryon Street a few blocks away....the place looks a little dated but there are some nice bars and restaurants close by....everything you need is in walking distance but you better book now wherever you stay!
