Wofford College and the City of Spartanburg have been hard at work to make this year’s Carolina Panthers Training Camp another fantastic success.
From Thursday, July 25 through Wednesday, August 14, the Carolina Panthers will host public practice sessions as well as participate in a variety of fan-centric activities. Here’s your complete guide to making the most of your time in Spartanburg during the 2019 Carolina Panthers Training Camp. And as always, admission and parking are free for every practice session.
All traffic is encouraged to enter campus via Cumming Street from Pine Street and Wood Street. Twitty Street will be closed to all camp traffic.
Handicap parking will be available in the lot beside Jerry Richardson Indoor Stadium off Cumming Street for vehicles with state-issued placards or plates.
Additional parking information can be found on the Carolina Panthers website.
Free shuttle buses will be provided from several parking lots on and around the Wofford College campus. On campus, the shuttle drops off and picks up in front of the Gibbs Stadium plaza on Cummings Street and operates two hours before and after practice. The shuttle also stops at the corner of Evins Street and Osage Street to pick up fans from Lots C, D and E.
Practice sessions begin Thursday, July 25 and continue through Wednesday, August 14. Cancellations due to weather or other scheduling conflicts can occur, so be sure to visit the Carolina Panthers Training Camp webpage for additional information.
Getting an autograph can be an art. The best advice for getting an autograph during a practice session is this: Arrive early and stay late. The most common area for obtaining an autograph is along the fence which runs from the practice field to the player facility. Be sure you have everything ready at a moment’s notice! Also, for the sanity of everyone involved, please don’t ask players to sign a dozen items. It keeps other fans from getting their autograph and it can also help make for an awkward situation.
What To Bring With You
Backpacks, medical supplies, coolers, folding chairs, seat cushions, tablets, and umbrellas are all allowed in the practice complex. We recommend bringing a folding chair, plenty of sun screen, water, and an umbrella just in case! It can get very hot out there at the practice facility, so please be careful!
Spartanburg offers a myriad of activities for you and your family to enjoy throughout the day. Hit up RJ Rockers Brewing Co., The Silo, Ciclops Cyderi and Brewery, or the Growler Haus for a delicious craft beer and quick snack. Looking for a sweet treat? Hub City Scoops and Spill the Beans have got you covered. Looking for a big… big meal? Well, The Beacon Drive-In is clearly the answer.
