Albany Panther fans turn out this season

Posted: Updated:

The Albany Panthers will play their last regular season home game this weekend.  Team leaders say they're pleased with the support they've gotten from fans this season.

General Manager Will Carter says team is averaging around 5,000 fans per game, that's up from last season.  He thinks starting a new youth indoor football league with Parks and Recreation contributed to the rise in attendance.  He hopes for a big crowd Saturday to cheer the team for a win which would guarantee the Panthers a home playoff game.

"The fans we have are die-hard, you notice at the games it's a lot louder, our players enjoy it the most because they can hear the encouragement on the field as they're trying to win the game. They can hear fans chanting getting the team involved and getting them excited to pull through with a victory," said Will Carter, Albany Panthers Manager.

If the Panthers win Saturday night, tickets will immediately go on sale for the playoff game next Saturday. Season ticket holds have until Monday to decide if they want their seats for the playoff games. If not all tickets would $15.00 for all seats.

Saturday will be rally towel night, and the team will auction off their white away jerseys from last season.
