The ACC announced today a 10 year commitment to hold its Football Championship game at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.

The championship games recently played in Charlotte have been sell-outs. College football conference championship games have not always drawn big crowds. Charlotte’s geographic location for ACC schools, the city’s appeal for fans travelling, and the growing strength of ACC football programs, have combined to make the Queen City an ideal location for the annual event.
“Charlotte is a premier destination for sports fans to spend a weekend,” said Rep. Scott Stone, who represents part of Charlotte in the General Assembly. “The hospitality of our community, coupled with the large volume of hotels and restaurants near Bank of America Stadium, make it an ideal setting for this event.”
