Others have accepted. The uniforms seemed to be a hit among fans.
âI love it. This blue color is fantastic,â Hector Cortes of Rock Hill.
Several fans told WBTV that they liked the way the Charlotte FC colors looked similar to the Carolina Panthers colors.

Minutes after the jerseys were unveiled on Thursday night, fans started lining up to buy them at the booths set up at Camp North End. Many fans have said they can’t wait for the start of the season.
Hill said his family will be making the trip from Whiteville, North Carolina to watch the home games.
âWe drive two and a half hours every game at home to come see the team, so we’re super excited,â said Hill.
Santos said her family lives in Kannapolis and they are also looking forward to attending the games.
âWe’ve already put the program on our calendar and it’s already a built-in night for us to enjoy as a family,â Santos said.
