Is there a bylaw in UNCW’s charter that forbids it from forming an NCAA football team?

Alex Riley


Q. Is there a charter law in UNCW by-laws and land grant that does not allow football as an NCAA sport at UNCW. I have heard this rumor for many years.

A.  UNCW can start a football program if it likes. But the school isn’t starting one anytime soon.

UNCW sports information director Joe Browning notes there is no bylaw that says the Seahawks can’t field a football team. But the school has no intentions of creating a program from scratch in the foreseeable future.

There is, however, a Facebook group titled “Football Program at UNCW.” It has more than 1,000 members currently.


When will a football program be started at UNCW?

When did they change the school colors at UNCW?
