Future Football Schedules


#421

We have a 15,000 seat stadium to fill with over 100,000 alums, 27,000 students, and 155,000 people
living in University City. I know it may take a little bit of EFFORT, but there should be no excuse not to fill that stadium up 6 times a year. The #1 priority of our Athletic Department needs to be making sure our football stadium is sold out, and we are in the process of expanding the stadium. The success of our Athletic Department depends on the success of our football program.[/quote]

I am in total agreement with this statement. At the end of the day, the athletics department has got to figure out a way to put people in the seats. The school is too large with too many alumni and random football fans in the city of Charlotte not to make this happen. We need to aim for 30 - 40k seats by the time we play the tarholes at Richardson stadium.

Otherwise, I think 32k or 35k would be max.

[quote=“Indy Niner, post:414, topic:28863”][quote=“Nugget, post:413, topic:28863”][quote=“Indy Niner, post:411, topic:28863”]Hey guys new to the board. As someone who works with a lot of IU grads, they only care about the tailgate and not the game. Could be winnable games if they stay on the schedule.

Welcome to the board. Were you at the basketball at Indiana when the Niners won on a last second, half-court shot?[/quote]

I was not. At that time, being in grade school, I was still rooting for the hoosiers. I still remember all the crazy snow that day and that half court shot. Maybe that’s what made me want to become a niner :)[/quote]
Okay, the grade school comment hurts, but glad you are a Niner anyway. I was supposed to fly out for that game with the Athletic Department but the snow cancelled the trip. Thankfully the team got there the day before.

That was one of my first memories of seeing Charlotte on TV after deciding I’d be a 49er, they debated whether or not his shot should’ve counted on PTI.


#426

Indiana is hardly an exciting football program but like the $ here and by that time we could easily win one or both of those games and take down our first Big 10 team.


#427

I like the idea of a winning record against the Big 10.


#428

We could meet and beat a Big 10 program in a bowl game before then, just saying.


#429

[quote=“49RFootballNow, post:428, topic:28863”]We could meet and beat a Big 10 program in a bowl game before then, just saying.[/quote]Possibly, but honestly, I’d be surprised if we end up in the HoD bowl. If I were running that bowl, I wouldn’t want us. Our attendance there would very likely be weak.


#430

Tar Heels will pay us a $200,000 Guarantee for the first game that we will pay back after the second game. There is a $500,000 fee for breaking the contract, so they will be in the hole $700,000 for cancelling after the first game.

We’ll be getting $1M and $1.1M from Indiana for the two games. If the game is canceled with >2 years notice the cancelling team will pay $800,000, if it is cancelled after that the cancelling team will pay $1.1M


#431

That’s pretty strong. I’m really liking how our scheduling is progressing.


#432

Will ODU definitely play in Charlotte next year? We didn’t play CUSA eastern division member WKU this year.


#433

[quote=“JaMiNNiNeR, post:432, topic:28863”]Will ODU definitely play in Charlotte next year? We didn’t play CUSA eastern division member WKU this year.[/quote]I don’t think it is definite, but probably fairly likely. We are their closest conference mate, so their admin will likely push for a game against us again.


#434

If we get MTSU and ODU at home next year (and it seems likely), well that’s two games that I will be excited to see.


#435

Game against Marshall is at 3:30 ;D


#436

UTSA at 2


#437

I guess this is confirmed? I was looking earlier today at the “official” 49ers site and the schedule still says TBA…


#438

Confirmed from the Charlotte 49ers Facebook.

Shows correct now.
