SPARTANBURG (WSPA) – The Carolina Panthers recorded the second largest attendance numbers for training camp in Spartanburg in the team’s history.

The Spartanburg Convention & Visitors Bureau reports 99,196 people watched practices on the campus at Wofford College between July 26 and August 13.

That is down from the fans who turned out to the 2016 camp as the Panthers were coming off appearing in Super Bowl 50 after winning the NFC Championship.

The 2017 training camp at Wofford had three fewer practices compared to the previous year’s camp.

This year’s camp marked the first decline in attendance for the training camp in Spartanburg since 2009.
