The Charlotte Sports Foundation and Tepper Sports & Entertainment have announced an extension of their partnership to host events at Bank of America Stadium, including the Duke’s Mayo Classic and Duke’s Mayo Bowl.
Bank of America Stadium is home to the NFL’s Carolina Panthers and Major League Soccer’s Charlotte FC. In 2022, the stadium hosted 39 sports and entertainment events, a venue record. The bowl game has called Bank of America Stadium home for 22 years.
“The Charlotte Sports Foundation is excited to build on our already strong partnership with Tepper Sports & Entertainment,” said Charlotte Sports Foundation Board of Director Co-Chairs Johnny Harris and Andrea Smith. “The support we receive from their entire organization is invaluable and we look forward to hosting more high-profile events at Bank of America Stadium in the coming years.”
This year’s college football games included the Duke’s Mayo Classic on September 2 with North Carolina taking on South Carolina. In December, the Duke’s Mayo Bowl will feature teams from the ACC and SEC. Additionally, the Atlantic Coast Conference maintains a long-term agreement to host the ACC Football Championship Game at the stadium.
“Tepper Sports and Entertainment is grateful for its partnership with the Charlotte Sports Foundation as we continue to work together to make Charlotte the premier destination for sports and live entertainment in addition to generating a significant economic impact for our city,” said Panthers Team President Kristi Coleman, a member of the Charlotte Sports Foundation Board of Directors.
