Charlotte 49ers Football Adds Crosstown Series With JCSU

CHARLOTTE - Dec. 1, 2011 - The Charlotte 49ers, who will unveil a new football program in 2013, have announced the final game for year number two: the 2014 season.  Charlotte will play a crosstown series with Johnson C. Smith in 2014 and 2015. Both games are slated to be played at the 49ers stadium, which is currently under construction.

The 49ers will play Johnson C. Smith at home Sept. 6, 2014 and Sept. 19, 2015.  With this announcement, the 2014 schedule is now complete, with six home games and six road games.  The 2015 date gives the 49ers four opponents for the 2015 season. Charlotte had already completed an 11-game schedule for the inaugural season in 2013, with six home dates and five road games.

With the scheduling of this series, two games previously slated for 2014 have been rescheduled to new dates in the same season:  The 49ers will play their season-opener at Campbell, Thursday night, Aug. 28 and the 49ers have shifted the Old Dominion home game to Sept. 20.  Campbell will now be the 49ers season-opening opponent in each of the first two seasons.

Charlotte will play its first football game at home, Aug. 31, 2013 vs. Campbell to open a three-game homestand in which they face Chowan, Sept. 7 and North Carolina Central, Sept. 14.  The other three home dates for the first season are Oct. 5 against Gardner-Webb, Oct. 12 against UNC Pembroke and Nov. 9 vs. North Greenville.
