Charlotte names stadium after Richardson

By The Associated Press
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Charlotte 49ers have announced their new 15,300-seat football facility will be named Jerry Richardson Stadium following a $10 million donation from the Carolina Panthers owner.
Construction on the stadium was completed last October.
Charlotte Chancellor Phillip Dubois said Tuesday in a release that Richardson ``knows that football can bring the students and the city of Charlotte together and he wanted to be among the first to stand up and state, `this program is important to me.'''
The playing surface was previously named McColl-Richardson Field after an earlier donation from Richardson and former Bank of America chairman Hugh McColl.
Richardson also announced an endowed football scholarship in honor of his son, Jon Richardson.
Charlotte begins play this fall as an FCS independent before joining Conference USA in 2015.
