It says that they will play at Memorial Stadium.  Other than its central location it doesn't have much to offer.  They should play in Niners Stadium once it is completed.
Hey 49er undergrads, you are bigger than UNC-CH.  Start acting like it!

I like this idea

Judy said that one of our possible Title IX teams could be lacrosse.  I didn't know they had women's lacrosse but if this is true we should do some sort of collaboration with the professional team and the women's team on a field/stadium if they don't use the football stadium.

They chose a team name. Next season, you will be seeing the Charlotte Hounds taking the field in Navy, Royal, Gray, and Tan.

Purchased my season tickets this weekend. Charlotte is poised for a playoff run before they even play a game. Widely regarded as having one of the best rosters in the league, as well as having one of, if not the best off season.

Season opens on the 28th. I'll be in Charlotte and at Memorial tailgating before the game.

With Memorial being walking distance from me, I'll probably check out a few games. I noticed when I drove by a few days ago that the field is already painted up for the Lacrosse team.

They started training camp a week or two ago. As strange as it sounds to say, don't be surprised if the hounds become the most successful charlotte pro sport on the field.

Joe Walters will dominate this league. Lacrosse is spelled with an "e" at the end

And ten thousand Charlotteans will be beyond elated about it.

I think you're being generous.

Currently have the third best attendance in the league. I expect it'll jump since we won our first game last week
