CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte has scheduled the opening game for its first football season, a home game against Campbell on Aug. 31, 2013.
Wednesday's announcement comes a little over a month after the school got final approval to begin a program at the Football Championship Subdivision level. Construction of an on-campus stadium is expected to begin in May.
The 49ers have one other game scheduled in 2013, a trip to Morehead State on Nov. 23.
Charlotte's two-year deal with Campbell includes a road game in 2014.
