Cardinals turn over tickets for Saturday’s playoff game

Panthers playoff game tickets were still available Friday after the Arizona Cardinals turned over about 300 unsold seats on Thursday night.

About 200 were left Friday afternoon, a Panthers spokesman said.

Additionally, thousands of seats were available for resale Friday on third-party websites like StubHub and Vivid Seats, where season-ticket holders, permanent seat license holders and others can sell their tickets.

Nearly 3,000 tickets were available Friday morning on StubHub. That number dropped and hovered around 2,000 in the afternoon.

However, Panthers officials said fans should be wary of counterfeit tickets and only buy from someone they know or from an official website. The Panthers’ website, Ticketmaster and the NFL Ticket Exchange are the endorsed options for tickets.

Limited tickets for the wild-card game were grabbed quickly by fans online Sunday night. It took only 15 minutes for fans to buy all 7,000 available tickets, Panthers officials said.

This is the 125th consecutive sellout for the Panthers.

According to ESPN, the Panthers have the eighth highest home-game attendance of all 32 teams in the NFL, with an average of 73,607 at each game. Bank of America Stadium can hold 74,000.
