BUIES CREEK — Campbell has added four future football dates, including North Carolina and East Carolina, plus a home and home series with The Citadel.

UNC becomes Campbell’s first Atlantic Coast Conference opponent on the schedule, with the Tar Heels welcoming the Camels to Chapel Hill on November 4, 2023.
With the additions, Campbell will face at least one FBS opponent in each of the next five seasons, including Troy in 2019, Georgia Southern in 2020 and Liberty in 2021. The Camels also head to Coastal Carolina this season, taking on the Chanticleers on September 15.

The announcement also includes a change in the Camels’ previously announced William & Mary series. Campbell was originally slated to host the Tribe on October 12, 2019, with that date moving to 2023. The Camels will head to Williamsburg, VA, in 2022. Both dates are to be determined.
With the four game additions, Campbell now has 16 future opponents on the books from 2019-23, including four nonconference dates slated for each of the next two seasons.
The Camels have had 14 sellout crowds at Barker-Lane Stadium since 2013.

Good for CU. Worked on campus there for 3 years running concessions for the athletic games. Watched their football stadium be built from the ground up. There’s a lot of Fighting Camels pride in Buies Creek–just took a shift in university leadership to emphasize and prioritize it. Hope this turns into a long friendship on the field for both schools.
