The Charlotte 49ers will open their second football season the way their first began: against Campbell. The difference this time is that the game against the Camels will be in Buies Creek on Aug. 28.

The 49ers released their 11-game 2014 schedule Monday. There are six games at Richardson Stadium, including one against Mecklenburg County rival Johnson C. Smith on Sept. 6.

The 49ers (5-6 last season) went 3-5 against teams they will play again in 2014. They will face Elon, J.C. Smith and The Citadel for the first time.

It’s another mix of teams from various NCAA classifications – Wesley, Division III; Johnson C. Smith, Division II; Campbell, Morehead State, non-scholarship Football Championship Subdivison (FCS); The Citadel, Southern Conference FCS; Gardner-Webb, Charleston Southern, Coastal Carolina, Big South FCS; Elon, James Madison, Colonial Athletic Association FCS; N.C. Central, Mid-Eastern Athletic FCS.

All of Charlotte’s home games will start at noon. The 49ers have delayed the installation of lights for Richardson Stadium from the 2014 season until 2015, when they will join Conference USA.

The 49ers’ spring game is scheduled for April 5.
