ACC championship game slated as an 'extraordinary event' in Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Football fans can expect to see extra security around the Bank of America stadium this weekend after Charlotte City Manager Ron Carlee declared this weekend's ACC Championship Football Game an 'extraordinary event.'

An Extraordinary Event, in Charlotte, is defined as a large scale event or an event of national or international significance which might attract a significant number of people to a certain geographic area of the city.

The city manager, in collaboration with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, has determined the championship game meets the criteria.

The designation allows the city to modify its permitting process for activities such as parades and specifies certain items that are prohibited from being brought into certain boundaries of the event.

The championship game will be held at Bank of America Stadium Saturday at 8 p.m. and the pregame fan festival, ACC FanFest, will be held near the stadium at South Mint and North Graham streets from noon to 7 p.m.

Number one ranked Clemson will face the number ten ranked North Carolina Tar Heels in the game, which could mean National Championship contention for the winning team.
