PANTHERS FACE BLACK OUT FOR FIRST GAME AT MEMORIAL STADIUM
Published August 9, 1995
The Panthers are 26,000 tickets short of a sellout on the final day before the NFL's 72-hour sellout rule takes effect and the exhibition game will be blacked out in the Charlotte area, according to the CHARLOTTE OBSERVER. The team has sold 50,000 tickets for the game but Memorial Stadium in Clemson, SC has the largest NFL capacity at 82,000 seats. The Panthers have sold 50,000 of the 62,000 available PSLs for the Carolinas Stadium, but those PSL owners bought only 28,000 season tickets for this year (Ron Green Jr, CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 8/9).
