The ACC is committed to making Charlotte, North Carolina its destination at the end fo the college football season. On Monday the ACC formally announced the ACC Championship Game will remain in Charlotte through 2019.
The ACC and the city of Charlotte’s previous deal to host the championship game expired at the end of the 2013 season, when Florida State topped Duke for their second straight ACC title. Charlotte has hosted the ACC championship since 2010 and the conference gave commissioner John Swofford the authority to negotiate for a new contract with Charlotte. Since moving the game from Tampa to Charlotte the ACC has recorded paid attendance figures over 64,000 for all four games.
The 2014 ACC Championship Game will be held on Saturday, December 6. It looks like there will be a new championship trophy as well…
