Football licenses reservations at 3,755

At the close of business on Thursday, the Charlotte 49ers had received reservations for 3,755 Forty-Niner Seat Licenses (FSLs). At a price of $1,000 each, that could translate into more than $3.7 million for the creation of a football program.

At this time, no money is being accepted by the ticket office. The 49ers must await the final decision of the UNC Charlotte board of trustees, which will come next month, before money can be accepted. The recommendation of the school's chancellor, Dr. Philip Dubois, called for the sale of 5,000 FSLs within six months of the board's approval.

Interested fans and corporations can add their names to the reservation list by calling the 49ers ticket office at (704) 687-4949 or the 49ers Athletic Foundation at (704) 687-4950.

Seat licenses? Seriously? Getting to be just as big a rip off as the freaking Panthers!

If no money is being accepted, what difference does it make how many reservations they have? It can become a different story when you have to write the check.

you're probably also the guy who questioned the interest in the community of Charlotte having a program. No money has been accepted, but no real marketing has been done by the athletic department because the official board decision isn't for another three weeks. So yeah - its expected a few people will drop off, but to be almost all the way there before a decision has even been met is a good sign when marketing hasn't even begun.

The people who are pooh-poohing this good faith effort on the 49er fans part are probably the same people who said that no one would ride the light rail. How did that work out?

GO 'NINERS FOOTBALL !!
