49ers Football Stadium Taking Shape
The football stadium that surrounds McColl-Richardson Field at UNC Charlotte is taking shape. The stadium, constructed with more than 15,000 permanent seats, will be augmented with thousands more temporary seats by the time the Charlotte 49ers take the field Aug.31 2013 for their first intercollegiate game, against the Campbell University Camels. The additional seats are required as part of the 49ers' transition from the Atlantic 10 conference to Conference USA. The stadium design includes plans for it to be expanded -- eventually -- to 40,000 permanent seats. If you haven't been to campus lately, come see the transformation. Go Niners!
