What happens when I join TeamAutismNC?

After joining TeamAutismNC, you will receive e-mails during the college football season that include educational info, current events and stats associated with autism in North Carolina. These e-mails begin in August and run through the first week of December.

Team members who are 18+ years of age and a resident North Carolina will be eligible to win the Wood Pellet Grill Give-A-Way at the end of the college football season. To be eligible to win, you must be subscribed to the e-mail list at the end of the season. See Give-A-Way Rules for more information.

E-mails are not sent out during the football off-season, but will continue the next year once the college football season begins. Once you join the team, you’re on it even going into the next year, so if you signed up in 2017 and are currently on the e-mail list, there is no need to sign up this year. You should already be receiving e-mails. If you have signed up and are not receiving e-mails, please e-mail us at and we’ll fix the problem.

What is the Autism Awareness Game?

Each season, one University of North Carolina Football home game is designated as the Autism Awareness Game. During the game the Autism Society of North Carolina will be featured on in game graphics and also on pregame radio.

Prior to kickoff, the Autism Society of North Carolina will be setup in Tar Heel Town. Staff members will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about autism or the services they provide in the state.

The 2022 Autism Awareness Game is scheduled for October 1st. North Carolina will be playing Virginia Tech.
