CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Fans will get their first look at the 2014 Charlotte 49ers Volleyball team during the annual Green/White match scheduled for this Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. inside Halton Arena. After the roughly two-hour match that will mix and match the Niners roster, everyone in attendance will be invited down to the Halton Arena floor to meet the players and coaching staff. Schedule posters will be handed out as well giving fans a great opportunity to get some autographs and take photos with your favorite Niners.
The roster of 2014 features eight returners from a year ago, six newcomers and one returner who missed 2013 due to injury. Head Coach Gokhan Yilmaz is beginning the new era of Charlotte volleyball in his first season with the Niners.
Admission to Saturday night’s Green/White match is free and open to the public.
The 2014 regular season will also open up at home next weekend as the Niners host the five-team Charlotte Invitational.
