Carolina Panthers looking forward to 2023 training camp
By Kevin Tolbert
The Carolina Panthers recently announce their 2023 training camp schedule. The camp will remain at Wofford College in Spartanburg, S.C.
After successful OTA and Mini-camp practices, according to new head coach Frank Reich, the team is looking forward to the next phase of preparation as they shape the new offense and defense for the upcoming season. "We like our players, we like our roster and it's our job to put those players in the best position possible," Reich said in a press conference on the final day of the team's mini-camp.
Practices are free and open to the public. Fans will have opportunities for autographs after each session. This season, though, fans will need to acquire a ticket for each practice via Ticketmaster.
