49ers' football reservations reach 3,300

At the close of business on Tuesday, the Charlotte 49ers had received reservations for 3,300 Forty-Niner Seat Licenses (FSLs). At a price tag of $1,000 each, that would translate into $3.3 million for the creation of a football program.

At this time no money is being accepted by the ticket office. The 49ers will await the final decision of the UNC Charlotte board of trustees, which will come next month.

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 are encouraged to add their names to the growing reservation list by calling the 49ers ticket office at (704) 687-4949 or the 49ers Athletic Foundation at (704) 687-4950.
