Weekend Warriors to Battle Like Panthers

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 4/03/2009 No comments
If some of your coworkers, particularly males, appear to be in pain or moving a little slower on Monday, here's likely the reason why. This weekend the Carolina Panthers are hosting the sixth annual Miller Lite Weekend Warrior Flag Football Tournament at Bank of America Stadium and the Panthers' practice fields.

The tournament takes place Saturday and Sunday for ages 21 and older and features four skill divisions: Weekend Warrior, Couch Potato, 35 and over, and Matt & Ramona Co-Ed. Registrations for this popular event quickly filled up (128 teams) and long ago closed, but you can still come as a spectator. Play begins at 10 a.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. Sunday.

The format is four-on-four with rosters comprised of a maximum of six players (four players plus two substitutes). They'll play on 25-by-60-yard fields. All teams are guaranteed to play a minimum of three games during pool play on Saturday. Half of the teams will advance to Championship Day on Sunday, which will be a single-elimination format.

Division champions will receive championship rings and will be recognized during an on-field presentation at a Panthers preseason home game this season. Oh boy, you can just see the bragging coming around the water cooler.
