As the Carolina Panthers count the hours until Super Bowl 50, they’ve found support from another football team - not American football, but the other football - Leicester City of the British Premier League.

If you’re looking for a place to watch the Super Bowl, but don’t have an invitation you’ve still got plenty of choices around Charlotte. Sports bars and restaurants will be throwing their doors wide open for fans. Some other venues are offering more elaborate Super Bowl options. Your choice might depend on your budget.

At some venues, you’ll pay just to get in the door for the big game.  As in – cover charge.  For example, Tilt on Trade, uptown, advertises on its website that “$20 cover gets complimentary draft and food.”

Sometimes, just sometimes, extreme persistence pays off. Especially when you're trying to help Panthers fans spread hither and yon cheer on their team from afar.

This Sunday when the Carolina Panthers play the Denver Broncos, Panthers' coach Ron Rivera will become the second Latino head coach in Super Bowl history. It's one reason many in Charlotte's Latino community are all about American football right now.

Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera is happy with how linebacker Thomas Davis and defensive end Jared Allen are looking in practice. Both are key players recovering from injuries.

For 17 weeks, in distant NFL cities like New York, Denver and San Francisco, they’ve cheered on the Carolina Panthers behind enemy lines.

Amid whispers, open snickers and often the objects of bewildering curiosity, they audaciously wear anything Panthers blue, black, silver and white: T-shirts, jerseys, sweatshirts and lately toboggans – even when they’re relegated to the smallest TV in the back of the bar.
