History

The Carolina Panthers play in the NFL’s National Football Conference. The franchise was founded in 1993 by club owner Jerry Richardson and began play in 1996. During the team’s inaugural season, home games were played at Memorial Stadium on the campus of Clemson University. The Panthers moved into a brand new facility in 1996, located in Charlotte, North Carolina. The stadium was known as Ericsson Stadium but has since been renamed Bank of America Stadium. The stadium was financed by private ticket sales and the Panthers are one of few NFL teams to own their own stadium.

The Panthers became successful very quickly as they set an NFL record for wins by a first year franchise with seven. In just their second season, the club went 12 to 4 and won their division. That season, their offense was led by a young Kerry Collins as quarterback and Anthony Johnson as running back. The team’s defense was led by star linebackers Kevin Green and Sam Mills and was ranked second in the NFC during the 1996 regular season.

The surprising early success of the Panthers did not last very long. In 2001, the football club went 1 to 15 and set an NFL record with 15 consecutive losses. However, the team soon rebounded from the terrible 2001 campaign and found themselves in the Super Bowl just two seasons later. The Panthers lost the championship when the New England Patriots kicked the game winning field goal with just four seconds left in the fourth quarter. The game is considered to be one of the most exciting Super Bowls of all time.

Though the Panthers have yet to make a return trip to the Super Bowl since 2003, they have qualified for the playoffs on three more occasions, including the 2013 season. The franchise has made the NFL’s post season a total of five times and have won four regular season division titles. The club has been able to field a competitive team on many occasions during their relatively short history.
