-A A +A

From release

CHARLOTTE –  Less than 5,500 tickets are still available for the 2010 Dr. Pepper Atlantic Coast Conference Football Championship game, it was announced this week by game officials.

Over 65,000 tickets have already been sold for this year’s game between Virginia Tech and either N.C. State, or Flordia State.

The Dr. Pepper ACC Football Championship Game, in its sixth year, will be played in Charlotte on Dec. 4, with a 7:45 p.m. kickoff and televised nationally on ESPN. 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.

The ACC title game will be held at Bank of America Stadium, home of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers and the Meineke Car Care Bowl.

“We couldn’t be happier to be where we are in ticket sales at this point,” said Will Webb, Executive Director, earlier this week. “We are striving for a sellout, which is what we always believed the ACC deserves. The fact that we are almost there, given we don’t know the final matchup, is a testament to the game and the conference.”

Tickets for the 2010 Dr. Pepper ACC Football Championship Game begin at just $25 and are available through the local organizing committee’s official website, www.accfootballcharlotte.com and through TicketMaster.

Charlotte Collegiate Football, a non-profit organization, serves as the organizing committee for the Dr. Pepper ACC Football Championship Game. CCF also operates the Meineke Car Care Bowl.
