What is Niner Nation Week?  

NinerNationWeek 2022 kicks off October 17th with some of the top five things to do in Charlotte. Its UNC Charlotte Homecoming, Charlotte 49ers football, an Uptown celebration and loads of campus events rolled into a week of NinerNation fun. Coming soon - UNC Charlotte social events in your community. Mayor Lyles, Sharon Gaber, Will Healy have fun at NinerNationWeek Uptown celebration

Even if you can't make it to an event, Niner Nation Week is the perfect time to display your UNC Charlotte pride. Fly your Charlotte 49er's flag, stake your Niner's yard sign, wear Niner green gear all week (especially on Wednesday), and spread the word on your social channels that you're a proud member of Niner Nation!


Niner Nation Week is celebrated on campus, around Charlotte, in your neighborhood and online. Don't miss being a part of one or more of our fun-filled events. We're adding them daily so check back often.
