The Clemson Tigers and North Carolina Tar Heels will be playing in Charlotte for the ACC championship on December 5. It looks like the fans are pretty excited for the game and it was evidenced the ticket sales.
The game is still a little less than two weeks away, but Bank of America Stadium has already sold out, more than 73,000 tickets, according to College Football Talk. This is the third time the game has sold out since coming to Charlotte in 2010.
“We look forward to having a full house in Charlotte for this year’s ACC Football Championship game, and we appreciate our partnership with the entire city,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford in a released statement. “Our event continues to gain excellent momentum in Bank of America Stadium and it’s a win-win that Charlotte and the ACC Football Championship are becoming synonymous.”
A big part of this feat is possibly because the Tar Heels are making their first appearance in the game in team history. The Tigers are also possibly going to be undefeated going into the game and the winner will likely be in the College Football Playoff.
