19th Annual Game Features Teams from the ACC and Big Ten


Charlotte, North Carolina (December 14, 2020) – The Charlotte Sports Foundation (CSF) announced tickets are now on sale for the 19th Annual Duke’s Mayo Bowl scheduled for Wednesday, December 30th at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. The game, set for a noon kickoff, features for the first time a matchup of the Atlantic Coast Conference against the Big Ten Conference. It will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.

A limited number of tickets are available for the game and may be purchased through Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.com.

In compliance with current state and local regulations, the total number of spectators is set at seven percent of capacity for Bank of America Stadium. Seat locations are similar to those currently in place for Carolina Panthers’ football games and comply with stadium policies.

Game tickets in the outside seating bowl are distributed in “pods” to support physical distancing between each group of ticket holders at the game, with the expectation that fans will be attending games with family members they have been sheltering with and/or with trusted acquaintances. Seating pods are assigned every other row with at least two seats between groups. Fans are asked not to move to other seats or join other groups.

Face coverings are mandatory for every person in the stadium (fans and staff) and must be worn at all times, except while actively eating and drinking in their seat. Fans are required to follow all physical distancing markers displayed throughout the stadium. These markers will help everyone line up for security screenings, restrooms and concessions.

Bank of America Stadium is entirely cashless in 2020. All purchases will need to be made via credit card, debit card, or touch-free payment. Pre-paid debit cards are accepted.

The Duke’s Mayo Bowl has welcomed 942,565 fans to Charlotte since its inception. The game has reached over 55 million television households and produced an economic impact of over $280 million to the city and the surrounding region

This is the first year with Carolinas-founded Duke’s Mayonnaise as the title sponsor. The partnership with Duke’s Mayonnaise, a staple in southern recipes for over 100 years, was announced this past June.
