The game is slated to start at 8 p.m., and it will be the Panthers' third game of the preseason. Carolina is 3-1 all time against the Ravens, who won the the last meeting in 37-13 in 2010.

Carolina opens the preseason on Friday, Aug. 9 playing host to Chicago. It will be the third time the Panthers, led by coach (and former Bear) Ron Rivera, have played the Bears in either the regular season or preseason.

The Panthers will travel to Philadelphia on Thursday, Aug. 15. After the Ravens game the following week, the Panthers will close out the preseason with a home game against Pittsburgh, with the date to be determined.

The panthers are so boring

that is rough. I think they should have every team get either the 2nd or 3rd preseason game at home.

home crowd will see exactly 1 quarter and 1 series of starters in august. that said.....real fans would stay and watch the entire game regardless and enjoy getting early glimpses of young guys that might be the next steve smith or the next brad hoover.

they should anyway.

The tickets, however, are very sellable on the open market though for that slate. As D.W.G. stated, who cares about preseason?

I refuse to go to preseason games. lame and tickets are outrageous.

the same goes for division 1 ncaa teams that play d2 schools, forget that. you wanna sell tickets, play somebody.

charlottean: what makes you the expert on what a "true fan" should do and not do? I have a job. I pay the same for a meaningless preseason game as I will for the Patriot game. That being said. I will come and go as I please. there is not an NFL stadium that will have 15,000 people in the seats in the 4th qtr unless Baltimore.

I suppose the folks who say "it's pre-season, who cares?" are probably not "fans" who have to pay for these ganes regardless.
I can tell you I do care what games we get...teams have always gotten either the 2nd or 3rd pre-season game at home as they are the only ones that starters play in for any length of time.
Just more ineptitude by this teams front office. It's way past the point of rediculous....I'm am sick of it.

sell your psl globlwmr. you'll save tons, can still go to the few good games on the schedule and avoid the annual rape_ing involving ticket price increases and paying full price for practice games.

of course....as a taxpayer you'll still be funding the team....but not as much as a psl owner.

At least the Panthers have a real GM. Now they need a real owner.
