Hey Panthers Fans, I will be in South Florida in March and plan to enjoy several games at your fantastic arena. I am looking at seats in section 102 in row 21 or row 25, wondering if anyone has an opinion on which would be a better row? It looks like the seats in row 21 might be trickier to get to and may have less leg room, being right at the rail, than the seats a little higher up. I appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks!

I'm heading down to Ft. Lauderdale at the end of the month. Gonna check out the Jets/Panthers game. Can't wait.

I'm starting to like this Panthers team.

Heading down for a couple of games in early November. I'll be staying in Deerfield Beach, I was wondering if anyone could suggest a couple of good seafood restaurants in that area. Thanks!

Hey Guys,

Buying tickets from a client in the VIP Luxury suites sections 227.

Where is that in relation to the 100 level, and what usually is included in that?

Getting em for $50 a seat. Good deal?

Thanks!!

Nothing is necessarily included, but usually suites order food.

Yes that is a very good deal.

Is this for new years?

So, my work has finally slowed down and am now looking at taking 1, if not 2 trips down this winter to take in some games.

I have read this whole thread and it sounds like Ft. Lauderdale is my best spot to stay. Will be starting to check out Priceline for some hotel, flight, and car rental packages. Will obviously try and low ball off the start.

If I am going to stay in Ft. Lauderdale, what is my best bet for good sports bars?
Also some advice on nightlife, bars and stripbars (just don't tell the girlfriend)

Thinking about taking a trip down to Key West or Miami during one of the days when there are no games. Would be trying to drink all day, so car wouldn't be a good idea. Would train be my best bet for that day??

Thinking of coming down the week before St. Patricks day, which is a lot of peoples Spring Break, so it now just dawned on me things might be more expensive during this time. Might have to look at other weeks.

Where would the best spot to get tickets be in the arena as well? I will be looking on Stubhub for them, just wanna know the better spots to sit.

Will probably be posting more questions comments as they come to me. Can't wait to go and catch some games, and maybe come and say hello to some of you!

K, sounds good. No real budget. I'm going to try and get a car rental, flight, and hotel cheap as possible through Priceline, so after that I'm just looking for a good time!

I will be coming to the Leafs game in December and I was wondering what the view is like in the 400 level. Should I try and get better tickets than that?

If you sit in the first few rows at Center Ice, the view is really not bad at all. Otherwise, it is pretty far away (meaning you're sitting far enough that you can't see the player names on their jerseys) and I would try to sit closer as we have one of the bigger arenas in the league.

Back from Fla. Caught Hawks game and Tampa game. Too many transplants at the Chicago game. I hope that a winning team will get butts in the seats. Stayed at Embassy Suites in Deerfield Beach. Like the location and the hotel. Being land locked in Colorado I ate as much seafood as possible. Went to Seafood World in Pompano and thought it was great, also ate at Two Georges and thought it was real good as well. Checked out Whales Rib for lunch and felt it wasn't great. Went for Italian at Rosarios in Boca and it was top notch, although the food took forever. Caught some hockey and dinner at Duffy's, perfect place to watch some games and get food. Thanks

Nope, Deerfield Beach is on the coast, maybe 30 minute drive to rink.

Yeah, Deerfield Beach is in the Northeast part of Broward County along the coast and Sunrise is in the West Central area of the county just east of The Everglades.

I'm in Miami this week for business and was hoping to catch the Panthers/Flyers game on Sunday. Will I be able to scalp a decent seat or should I play it safe and buy from StubHub? Thanks!

I can't wait to see (OH MY) GOC play again!
