IM GOING TO THE GAME!!! GO PANTHERS!! this coming sunday should be the largest crowd ever at B of A stadium

THIS will be the biggest sporting event in Charlotte history. Period.


At least the biggest that a Charlotte team has played in.  Final Four was arguably bigger.

The Arkansas-Duke final had a 21.6 TV rating. The game Sunday should double that. The FF4 was a major stepping stone for the city as it pertains to hosting big events but this game will have a bigger national spotlight. The NBA All-Star game in 2017 should trump it though.


Sunday cannot get here fast enough.

I'd say the biggest sporting event in NC history. You could argue (Stanley Cup, Nascar, US Open Golf, NCAA final fours) but NFL is king.

I think everyone is speaking towards events the city has hosted.

You guys clearly don't recall The Great American Bash in 1985 at Memorial Stadium where Ric Flair defeated Nikita Koloff for the NWA Title and featured others such as the Ragin Bull, The Road Warriors, Magnum TA, Dusty Rhodes, The Minnesota Wrecking Crew and Superstar Billy Graham!

I will be there. Got tickets for $210 after stub hub fees in section 537. Really thought I'd have to spend at least $250 for tickets. I'm sure the opponent being Arizona and not Greenbay helped, along with the cold and maybe fans spending their money already on last weeks game.

Love ya bro, but NO WAY.

Only bigger from a local perspective and interest. Final Four brings more $, hotel rooms and attention to the city than the NFC championship.  Far more out of towners were here for Final Four than will be here for NFC championship.

2015 Final Four drew 74 million viewers and NFC championship drew 50 million.  Final Four visitors are here three nights typically vs one for football.


Final Four site is also promoted all season long and especially at beginning of NCAA tournament.  "The Road to Charlotte", etc. 


1994 brought national attention to the city itself which you don't get from a playoff game.

LOL.  I was at the Final 4 and I will be there Sunday.  From a local/regional viewpoint, Sunday will be larger.  From a national viewpoint, Final 4 MAY have been bigger, but it took place over a 3 day span with more than one televised game (which should mean more viewers).

You both have a point.  Now stop argueing.
