Pre-register for 2010 ACC championship tickets

If you want to buy tickets to the 2010 ACC football championship game at Bank of America Stadium, you can now pre-register for ticket orders.

Ticket packages will go on sale Feb. 1, 2010 and individual tickets will be available Feb. 15, 2010 but fans can pre-register for tickets at

The championship game will be played in Tampa this year then move to Charlotte where it will be played for two years, starting with the Dec. 4, 2010 game.

In announcing retired bank executive Hugh McColl and former mayor Harvey Gantt as honorary co-chairmen for the game, local officials made it clear they're intent on making the ACC championship game a fixture in Charlotte.

"We want to make this the permanent home," Gantt said.

ACC commissioner John Swofford endorsed the idea.

"We're here for two years," Swofford said. "We would like nothing better than to be here for a lot longer."

So, 'ticket packages' go on sale first, followed by individual game tickets a couple weeks later? Assuming that they really want the community to grab hold of the game, and seeing as how most of us in Charlotte don't need packages that include various aspects out of towner's need (presumably hotel rooms?), why don't they do the individual tickets first. Heck, they could even limit it to just certain zip codes to do it online?

Based on the attendance last year, you should be able to walk up and get midfield tix for about $5.

The ACC is a BASKETBALL conference. Send BC and VT and Miami back to the Big Least and bring back home-and-home.

Don't be an idiot. The game will be much better attended here than in Tampa for any number of reasons - First time in CLT, More central location that's easier for all teams (besides the two FL that haven't even played in it) to get to by car, etc.

There won't be any walk-up $5 tix, trust me. Think!!
