The Carolina Panthers have finalized the team’s preseason schedule.
Carolina’s preseason home opener against the Houston Texans will be played on Wednesday, Aug. 9, one day before the NFL window for preseason openers. The exception was granted to accommodate the PGA Championship taking place at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte that weekend.
“We approached the NFL and the Houston Texans about moving our game to Wednesday in an effort to minimize the impact on city resources, and out of respect for our friends at Quail Hollow and the PGA,” executive director of stadium operations Scott Paul said. “We thank the NFL and the Texans for their cooperation.”
