There are 3 games Uptown at BB&T Ballpark this season featuring the Niners, 2 home games vs UGa and NC State, and a "road" game against Winthrop.  I had a great time last year when we hosted NC State and was able to get some great seats.  The Home Run Club seats that are normally $25 for Knights games are $15 for the college games. The Field Box seats that are normally $19 are $10 for the college games. I don't think they even sell the Home Run Club Seats for Knights games since they are mostly held by season ticket holders.

March 8- Georgia at Charlotte 6:00
March 29 - NC State at Charlotte 6:00
April 5- Charlotte at Winthrop  6:00


Next question:  Are we pre-gaming at NWA's favorite spot, Belfast again?

I'd recommend buying ahead of time and printing them at home/work. I seem to remember some folks very upset by their experience with will call last season.

I'd be there if I wasn't traveling for work.

Should be a great night for a game, hopefully our guys actually show up after the sweep/embarrassment by Kent State.

Can't wait, there were still a few home plate club seats left when I grabbed mine a few minutes ago  :)

Fun game. I thought we were about to have another game where we played well on a big stage and walked away empty handed. Then, #BOOM. I know they were budgeting their arms, but I never thought I'd see an SEC team run out of pitching before we did. Let's try and back it up tomorrow!

Good to see the team overcome some really bad base running early on. Turnout was slightly disappointing but it was a great night for baseball.

Even their mid-week relievers were coming in throwing low 90's.  Georgia is a mid to low level $EC program these days, but they are still in the $EC.   

Nice to see us come back after giving up the lead.  Horkey pitched really well, and our bullpen was shakey but got it done with the big cushion we had.  Hopefully this will be something to build on for conference play starting in a few weeks.

Nice article from ESPN on our Uptown games, and the other college games hosted by the Knights.

Nice, but he can stick that Charlotte is the  "...Chapel Hill South" reference up his ass.

So who's going to see us vs State on 03/29, or us vs Winthrop on 04/05?
CHP sold out.  I declare Nick McEntyre our Chancellor-In-Exile!

I'll be there 2nd row behind home plate, hope there is another good crowd and more concessions are open.

I'll be there.  I agree with the statement about the concessions.

Just by judging by the tickets sold on TicketReturn there should be a much larger crowd than the game against UGA. If they have the same amount of concessions open then I wish everyone good luck.

Took me a full inning and a half to get a hot dog last time, even though they should have had more concession stands open the problem at the stand I went to was the general disinterest the workers all seemed to possess.

Well, we need a law to guarantee them $15 per hour to reward them for their disinterest.
Hey 49er undergrads, you are bigger than UNC-CH.  Start acting like it!
