The 2019 College Kickoff, ACC Football Championship, and Bowl Game resulted in an economic impact of $76.2 million to the Charlotte community. This included $41.2 million in direct visitor spending. In addition, over 73,000 hotel room nights were generated through the three games. The economic impact data was provided by the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority.

Charlotte Sports Foundation (CSF) owns and operates the College Kickoff and Bowl Game, in addition to serving as the local organizing committee for the ACC Football Championship in Charlotte.

We are pleased that our signature events had a combined economic impact of $76.2 million on the Charlotte community," said Danny Morrison, Executive Director of CSF. "One of the most important things is that the events stimulate the Charlotte hospitality industry during traditionally slow periods. The volume of business driven by these premier college football games is important to the Charlotte community."

Future regular season football games scheduled include: Notre Dame vs. Wake Forest (2020), East Carolina vs. App State and Georgia vs. Clemson (2021), and North Carolina vs. South Carolina (2023).

The mission of CSF, a 501(c)(3), is to provide leadership for sports-based initiatives that result in a positive impact on the economy and quality of life in the Charlotte region.
