Spotlight: Are You Ready for Some UNC Charlotte Football?

Date Published:
Friday, August 23, 2013

UNC Charlotte football is almost here. On August 31, we'll make history as we kick off our first NCAA football game in Richardson Stadium. It's a big day for the University, the region, and the state of North Carolina. And there are lots of ways you can be a part of that moment.

Even though the game is a sellout, it will be carried on television by WCCB in Charlotte. With almost half of all the tickets set aside for students, they'll receive 7,500 tickets to each game through the online lottery. While everyone can't get a ticket, there will also be viewing parties in many locations for students, fans and alumni. And don’t forget the special inaugural tailgating party with Alumni!

You can start the day with our pre-game webcast via live stream starting at 11:30 AM Saturday morning, where you can get a look inside the stadium and get ready for some 49ers football. On campus, the Student Union will have the game on and special activities, as well.

You can keep up with the game on Facebook and Twitter. Follow all the Twitter conversations at #CharlotteKickoff13.
