Kickoff arrives for Charlotte 49ers football

When football kicks off on Aug. 31, it will be the biggest athletic event the campus of UNC Charlotte has ever seen — and likely the biggest event period. Charlotte has “officially” had football since it was approved in 2008, but it becomes real Saturday. I’m excited about the tailgates and the traditions that come along with college football, but possibly my favorite part of Charlotte football is how it even got to this point in the first place.
