UNC Charlotte 49ers Football

Coming up at the end of the month, an event will take place At UNC Charlotte that has never happened before- the University will host its very first college football game. The 49ers previously have not had a football program, but an effort years in the making has culminated in the development of a new team over the past couple of years, and on August 31, they play their very first home game. We'll talk about what it means to the University, its students, alumni and supporters, and what effect a collegiate football team could mean for Charlotte, when Charlotte Talks.


Coach Brad Lambert - Coach of the Charlotte 49ers Football team
Judy Rose - UNC Charlotte Athletic Director
Philip Dubois - Chancellor of UNC Charlotte
