Economic touchdown? Some question impact of UNCC football
By Sam Boykin The University of North Carolina at Charlotte is scheduled to break ground on a $45 million football stadium next spring, with the first game scheduled for August 2013. But the UNCC football team is not expected to be a moneymaker for the college. In fact, it will likely be a drain on the college’s financial resources. That comes as no surprise to those involved with college athletics, most of whom say it’s just the cost of doing business. “We look at the value of any collegiate athletic program as what is the total experience and not as a profit center,” said Judy Rose, UNCC’s director of athletics. The issue of a UNCC football team has been debated for the past 20-plus years, with some claiming a football team would help bolster the university’s profile and campus life. Others have argued it’s too costly.
