Tickets for the 2012 Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game go on sale Friday, August 31 at 10:00 a.m.
The big game is scheduled for a primetime kickoff on December 1, at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.
The Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game is in its eight year, but 2012 is its third year in Charlotte. The first two years, teams faced off to a sold-out stadium.
"After two sellouts in the past two seasons, we are very excited to begin public ticket sales for the 2012 Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game," said Will Webb, executive director of Charlotte Collegiate Football. "With the efforts of the CCF Board of Advisors, the Leatherheads community support group and its Co-Captains, we have a great start on another sellout."
Ticket prices are $25 and $40 for Upper Level, $70 and $90 for Lower Level, and $150 and $175 for Club Level. Fans can purchase the tickets through the ACC website (link below), Ticketmaster, or at the Bank of America Stadium Ticket Office.
"The Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game has experienced terrific success the past two years in Charlotte and we look forward to its continued growth," said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. "We appreciate the support of the Charlotte community along with our ACC fans and look forward to December 1st."
"The City of Charlotte and the surrounding communities have proven to be tremendous hosts for the ACC, and the participating schools. We look forward to continuing to build upon our successes over the past two years."
Charlotte Collegiate Football, a non-profit organization, runs the Belk Bowl and serves as the local organizing committee for the Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game. The winner of the championship earns the ACC bid to play in the Discover Orange Bowl, if not selected for the BCS National Championship Game.
