The Hurricanes Homegrown Series returns for the 2017-18 season and features seven games that showcase some of the best that our local community has to offer in t-shirts, food, beer & spirits, art and music.

T-Shirts
Each game features a unique Hurricanes t-shirt designed and produced by one of these seven North Carolina clothing companies: Porch Fly Supply Co., Oak City Collection, Recover Brands, Runaway, Humbly Made, House of Swank and Asheville T-Shirt Co. Each shirt debuts at its corresponding Homegrown Game and is sold for $30 in the north end location of The Eye team store (section 112). Each shirt is produced in a limited quantity of 200 and is marked by a unique printed tag that denotes the game and shirt series. Limit two per person per purchase.

Food
Each game features an in-house, signature entree and dessert (new for the 2017-18 season) made fresh by PNC Arena chefs. All entrees are available at the section 109 concessions stand, and all desserts are available at the newly-created Homegrown Series dessert cart at section 111.
