Panthers to host flag football tournament

THE WEEKEND WARRIOR FLAG FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT IS SOLD OUT, AND WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING REGISTRATION FORMS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST.

The Carolina Panthers will host the seventh annual Miller Lite Weekend Warrior Flag Football Tournament March 27-28 at Bank of America Stadium and the team's practice fields. The two-day, non-contact tournament is for ages 21 and older and features four skill divisions: Weekend Warrior, Couch Potato, 35 and over, and Matt & Ramona Co-Ed.

The tournament format is four-on-four with rosters comprised of a maximum of six players (four players plus two substitutes). All teams are guaranteed to play a minimum of three games during pool play on the first day of the tournament. Fifty percent of all teams will advance to Championship Day, which will be a single-elimination format.

Division champions will receive championship rings and will be recognized during an on-field presentation at a Panthers preseason home game in 2010. The registration fee is $240 per team, and tournament proceeds will benefit Carolina Panthers Charities.

"The Carolina Panthers are thrilled to provide this fun and unique opportunity. Folks will enjoy a memorable NFL-style experience while raising critical funds to serve children in our community," said Riley Fields, the Carolina Panthers director of community relations.

The event is sponsored by Miller Lite, Time Warner Cable, News Talk 1110 WBT-AM and 107.9 The Link.
