CHARLOTTE -- June 4, 2013 -- In front of a crowd of over 500 fans attending the department's annual Great Gold Rush Auction, the Charlotte 49ers unveiled their 2013 inaugural football uniforms.
Four players emerged from behind a sillouette screen to model each of the combinations that can be used during the historic 2013 season.
Two of the jerseys, one green and one white, were then signed by head coach Brad Lambert and auctioned off during the gala event Saturday night.
The four combinations included all white and all green variations as well as combinations of the green jersey with white pants and the white jersey with green pants. The 49ers will also wear a white helmet with green speckles.
The predominantly green and white uniforms include gold and black accents to match the four colors found in the Charlotte 49ers official logo.
The 49ers will compete this fall in their first year of NCAA football. The 49ers will compete as a Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) independent in 2013 and 2014 before joining Conference USA in 2015.
