Carolina Panthers Stadium to host beer festival

In less than a year since buying the team, Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper has worked to transform the organisation including more bringing non-football events to Bank of America Stadium. Those efforts have paid off as the stadium will host the inaugural Untappd Beer Festival May 4, 2019 which will feature over 100 brewers from across the globe.

Untappd is the world’s largest beer app with over seven million users globally. The company is based in North Carolina and has indicated it will use Bank of America Stadium as a recurring home for an event in the Carolinas.

“We are delighted to be working with Untappd to bring this great new festival to Uptown Charlotte. The beer and brewery scene continues to be a beacon for the growth of our region, and we can’t wait to welcome many local and national brewers to our stadium,” said Carolina Panthers president Tom Glick.

In January, Tepper discussed the possibility of bringing an MLS expansion club to Charlotte to play at least initially at Bank of America Stadium. That effort along with the addition of events like Untappd Beer Festival are part of Tepper’s effort to bring more revenue to the stadium.
