The Carolina Panthers official app on iOS and Android will offer a number of new features to enhance the Game Day experience in 2018.
For the first time this season, Panthers fans will be able to order food and beverages from their seats while watching the game or gathering on the concourse. The initial rollout will be available on the 100 level concourse. After linking their payment to the app, perusing the menu and making their selections, those fans will receive a notification when their order is ready and directions to the nearest pick-up point. When arriving, the app will allow them to skip the line at the concession stands and open a sealed locker which will hold their order.
The experience will allow fans to pay digitally and watch more of the game while their order is being prepared.
Fans can access the order area by navigating to Stadium > Food and Beverage Ordering in the app.
Panthers fans are also encouraged to download the app to utilize the NFL's new digital ticketing initiative. The Panthers are replacing the print-at-home PDF ticket option with mobile ticketing. PDF tickets will no longer be valid for entry. PSL holders will still receive printed tickets in the mail and can enter the stadium using their printed tickets or mobile tickets.
The new initiative aims to reduce the risk of fraud and more easily allow fans to manage, transfer and resell their tickets through the app and Ticketmaster.
Both the app's ticket account manager and Ticketmaster.com will allow fans to access their tickets for gate entry and transfer or sell them.
Within the app, fans can click to the "Ticket" menu and access "My Account." After signing in, they will be given a number of options for managing their digital tickets, including adding it to the Wallet for iOS users. The Panthers mobile ticketing guidelays out step-by-step instruction along with frequently asked questions on the process. Fans can also sign in directly to Ticketmaster on their smartphones through the My Account page.
Fans without access to a smartphone and those with further questions are encouraged to call the Panthers ticket office at 704-358-7800 for more information.
Fans in the stadium that log onto the Panthers Wifi and then navigate to the home page of the app will be able to access a number of exclusive benefits, including the ability to watch in-game highlights in real time. By clicking the card on the home page or navigating to the "Drives" chart in the "Schedule" page, they utilize four different camera angles to watch replay just seconds after the play unfolds.
As always, fans within Carolina's primary markets are able to listen to live radio during the game by clicking on the radio button at the top of the screen.
Fans can navigate to the "More" menu on the right and then click "Settings" to toggle what type of Push Notifications they receive from the Panthers, including News, Promotions, Gameday and quarterly score updates.
