SEC Championship Game Is One Hot Ticket, With Prices Up This Year
Published November 27, 2012
MOVING SLOWLY: In Charlotte, Erik Spanberg notes as of Friday morning “about 58,000 tickets have been sold at the 74,000-seat” Bank of America Stadium for the ACC Championship game. Those figures include “the 10,000 seats allotted to each school playing in the game.” Game operator Charlotte Collegiate Football Exec Dir Will Webb said, “If this is a hiccup year, I think it’s had a good run.” When asked about the lack of a sellout, he added, “I am disappointed.” But the ACC is “committed to playing the game” in Charlotte through ‘13 after “signing a two-year extension last December.” Next summer and fall, talks are “expected to begin on the championship’s future.” Webb and other Charlotte execs have “emphasized their wish to make this the permanent host city, much as Atlanta is" for the SEC title game. Charlotte Collegiate Football Accountant Mike Mistler said that the goal is “to break even on the ACC game” (CHARLOTTE BUSINESS JOURNAL, 11/23 issue).
