Tickets for the 2013 Dr Pepper Atlantic Coast Conference Football Championship Game are now on sale. Fans may purchase tickets through the ACC’s official website, theACC.com, through Ticketmaster atticketmaster.com, or locally at the Bank of America Stadium Ticket Office.
Ticket prices are $25 and $40 for Upper Level, $70 and $90 for Lower Level, and $150 and $175 for Club Level.
The Ninth Annual Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game will be played in Charlotte Saturday, Dec. 7, with a primetime kickoff of either 7:45 or 8 p.m. For the fourth consecutive year, the game will be held at Bank of America Stadium, home of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers and the Belk Bowl. The game has sold out in two of its three years in Charlotte and has resulted in exciting matchups in each of its previous three years. Heavy demand is expected again this year and fans are encouraged to purchase tickets early to ensure good seats.
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.
“It’s an exciting time in the ACC as we kick off the 2013 season and begin to watch the 14 football programs compete for a spot in this year’s Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “As we look ahead to December 7th, we appreciate the support of the City of Charlotte and look forward to the event’s continued growth.”
“We believe the ACC is going to be as strong as ever in football this year and we are very excited about hosting the 2013 Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game in Charlotte for the fourth straight year,” said Will Webb, executive director of the Charlotte Football Foundation. “We are looking forward to another sellout and terrific event in Bank of America Stadium.”
Charlotte Sports Foundation, a non-profit organization, runs the Belk Bowl and serves as the local organizing committee for the Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game.
