The Carolina Panthers’ home of Bank of America Stadium is not in the same state Cam Newton left it in. So, he’s trying to change that.

To kick off his Thursday afternoon presser, the 11th-year quarterback laid out his mission to bring back the pride, energy and love the friendly confines in Carolina once had. As part of his initiative to return that spark to the team’s fanbase, Newton will give out 50 free tickets to this weekend’s game against the Washington Football Team.

“I’m gonna give away 50 tickets to the people who has rarely been to a game or has never been to a game,” Newton said. “This Sunday is important for us. We need to reclaim Bank of America Stadium. I know the success hasn’t been there. But we ain’t talkin’ about the past, we talkin’ about the things here moving forward.”

Bank of America Stadium, unfortunately, has been the site of a few too many takeovers from opposing fans this season. Take for instance, their contest against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5:

And their contest against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6:

And, most recently, their contest against the New England Patriots in Week 9:

The Panthers haven’t given their faithful much to be faithful about either, as they’ve gone 6-15 at home since 2019. Both of those trends must change for Carolina, and Newton is hellbent on making it happen.

“So I know one thing for a fact—there will be 50 people who I know, for sure, that will be screaming to the top of their lungs because they’ve never done it,” Newton added. “And I will hope their experience will be something that will be life-changing, groundbreaking and, obviously, something that will give us the added push to win a football game on Sunday.”

10 of the 50 tickets will be given out by Newton’s production company, Iconic Saga Productions. The other 40 will be distributed through various programs in city of Charlotte, also according to Cam.
