Good morning and welcome to “Cats & Coffee,” a weekly segment in which we get you caffeinated with an exciting look at the week ahead for the Florida Panthers.
Who’s ready to update their wardrobe?
The Florida Panthers will be holding a viewing party to unveil the club’s highly anticipated new logo and uniforms on Thursday, June 2 at the BB&T Center at 7:00 p.m.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 5:00 p.m. with a wide range of fun activities to partake in on the JetBlue tarmac in front of the area, including music, a bounce house, slap shot station and ball hockey.
Panthers defensemen Aaron Ekblad and Steven Kampfer, as well as forwards Vincent Trocheck and Shawn Thornton, will be in attendance at the event to introduce the Panthers new logo and model the team’s new threads. And, if you’re really lucky, you could be one of 300 fans to win a “selfie” with the players at the conclusion of the event.
In addition to the players, Panthers Owner & Governor Vincent Viola, as well as John Viola, will also be in attendance to answer questions about the team’s new look in a round-table setting.
Select merchandise with the new logo will be available for sale based on availability.
PICK YOUR SEAT
Now that you’ve got your new threads, it’s time to select your new seat for the upcoming season!
On Saturday, June 11, fans will have the opportunity to hand pick their 2016-17 seats at the BB&T Center from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. There are guaranteed to be plans that fit every budget, with ticket packages starting as low as $150.
In addition to selecting your seat, there will also be activities for children and the team’s latest merchandise will also be available for purchase.
You can RSVP here or simply stop by on the day of the event.
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY
On this Memorial Day, the Panthers would like to thank all those who have served and are currently serving in the military and armed forces. We greatly appreciate your sacrifice and service to our country. On this day we remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Happy Memorial Day to you and yours.
In honor of today, we’d like to once again share the story of US Air Force Staff Sergeant Zach Lieberman’s surprise return to the BB&T Center – a moment his family will likely never forget.
