It will cost more to see Panthers in person

It's going to cost more to watch the Carolina Panthers in person in 2014.

The team announced on Monday that ticket prices will rise anywhere from $2 to $21, with 66 percent going up in the $2 to $5 range. The $21 increase represents only 3 percent of the seats at Bank of America Stadium.

It is the first time the team has raised ticket prices since 2010. It's a modest increase and the reigning NFC South champions continue to rank in the lower half of the league in ticket prices.

In other words, it's a small price to pay for a team that appears to be on the rise after a 12-4 season and a trip to the playoffs.
