Bank of America Stadium confirms college football program until 2020


With the announcement that Notre Dame Fighting Irish will make its first appearance at Bank of America Stadium in 2020, the venue continues to extend its series of marquee matchups featuring programs from North and South Carolina.

The match, scheduled for September 26, 2020, now means that Bank of American Stadium, located in Charlotte, Carolina, is set to host a college football game every year through 2020.

North Carolina State and South Carolina will open the 2017 season on September 2, followed by Tennessee and West Virginia on September 1, 2018, then North Carolina and South Carolina on Labor Day weekend in 2019.

“We have a lot of alumni in the Charlotte area, and we brought 20,000 people with us when we played in the bowl game in 2007,” said Wake Forest athletics director Ron Wellman.

“We will still have six games in our home stadium in 2020, and this is a great opportunity for us to play in an NFL stadium. Notre Dame has a strong following and when you look at both teams, this could be a very good game.”
