Panthers to play 2024 regular-season game in Germany

Guten Tag!

As announced by the NFL on Thursday, the Carolina Panthers have been designated to play in Munich, Germany during the 2024 regular season. The game, which will account for one of their nine home contests, is set to be played at Allianz Arena—home of FC Bayern Munich.

Owner David Tepper said the following in the official statement released by the team this morning:

“It’s an honor for the Carolina Panthers to play in Munich in 2024. This game represents more than playing internationally for us. With more than 200 German-owned companies in the Charlotte area, this opportunity offers a special connection for the Panthers and our community. We are excited to deepen our relationships with our German fans, engage with our partners, and continue to grow our brand globally.”

The Panthers, as part of the league’s Global Markets Program, were awarded marketing rights to Germany back in December of 2021.

Their opponent and date for the matchup will be announced at a later time.
