The Charlotte 49ers men’s soccer team, who are ranked 23rd in the preseason NSCAA/Continental Tire Coaches Poll, play Davidson on the road in their final exhibition game, Saturday, August 23 at 7 pm.
Charlotte returns 15 letterwinners from last season’s Conference USA Tournament Champion and NCAA Tournament participant squad. The 49ers recorded a 12-6-3 record last season.
Kevin Langan, who is entering his third season as head coach, welcomes back stalwarts Kyle Parker, Luke Waechter, Brandt Bronico, David Mayer and Biko Bradnock-Brennan.
