Carolina Fever adapts to UNC athletics construction

After going a combined 27-4 at home a season ago, three UNC programs are tasked with recreating that home field advantage in stadiums outside of Chapel Hill.   

Carolina Fever

Carolina Fever, the largest student fan club at UNC, is devoted to showing UNC pride. For each sporting event a member attends, he or she is awarded points. Based on the total number of points, members can earn prizes. Among these prizes are men’s basketball tickets. Each of the top 150 members of fever are awarded two phase one tickets to each home game, provided they enter the student lottery. This changes for the UNC-Duke game, when the top 150 are given one ticket instead of two.

Carolina Fever also hosts events, including the Old Well Watch. UNC students keep an all-night watch on the Old Well on the eve of the UNC-N.C. State football game to prevent vandalism.

In April 2009, Carolina Fever became independent of the Carolina Athletic Association. Under the CAA, Carolina Fever was not its own organization, and funding was therefore harder to come by, leaders said. Massive population growth in the organization also motivated the split.

Membership was opened to all students in 2012 when Fever’s directors announced they would be removing the $20 membership fee.
