The Carolina Panthers have announced that the team will hold two joint practices with the Buffalo Bills prior to their preseason game.
The Bills visit Bank of America Stadium on Friday, August 16. Before that, the two teams will hold joint practices on the final two days of training camp – Aug. 13 and 14.
“The joint practices are an opportunity for us to get some quality work done,” said head coach Ron Rivera. “We’ve done it before and had good success. They are high intensity workouts and give our players different looks against different people. There is a little bit more of a challenge, especially for the quarterbacks. I’m pretty excited about that.”
The last time the Panthers held joint practices was in 2015 with the Miami Dolphins. Training camp opens on Thursday, July 25 at Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC with the team’s annual kickoff party prior to practice. The 14 practices will be open to the public with the team returning to Bank of America Stadium on August 2 for Fan Fest.
Tickets to Fan Fest are $5 and go on sale beginning Friday, July 12 on Panthers.com. Ticket proceeds from Fan Fest will benefit Carolina Panthers Charities and its on-going mission to serve the needs of communities across the Carolinas.
