CHARLOTTE – It's good to be back.
The Carolina Panthers and Bud Light are celebrating a return to a full Bank of America Stadium in 2021.
For the season opener on Sunday against the Jets, the Panthers and Bud Light are giving away 623 Bud Lights to fans before the start of the game. This number represents the 623 days since the last time Panthers fans were in the stadium at full capacity for a regular season game.
Starting at 11:45 a.m., fans can go to one of five designated concession stands near the entrances to claim their beer. The drinks are limited to one per customer and the fan must be 21 or older.
Once the 623 beers have been distributed, fans can purchase drinks through mobile ordering on the Panthers app or at the concession stands around the stadium.
With 15 minutes before kickoff, all fans should look to the stadium video boards and grab their Bud Lights for a massive cheers moment as we all celebrate being back cheering the Panthers together.
The Panthers and Bud Light encourage all fans to enjoy responsibly. Fans are eligible to win prizes by signing up for the Responsibility Has Its Rewards program and pledging to take a ride share, find a designated driver or be a designated driver.
