Roaring Riots goal is to grow and create a national network of Panthers fans.
- Pantherfanz Tailgate
The Pantherfanz Tailgating Club, established in 1999, goes all out with a black-and-silver bus and matching t-shirts at each home game. The group is made of up diehard Panthers fans who’ve been supporting the team for years, but the group is always open to new faces stopping by or reserving a spot in their designated tailgating area (if the spots aren’t all sold out).
Get excited everyone! #Keeppounding
