"It’s hard to say that after one year because we want to see a progression of successes before you call a place a home,’’ Swofford said while speaking to the Raleigh Sports Club. "But the fact that Charlotte is within 300 miles of eight of our schools is a real plus, because it enhances the fact that you’re going to have at least one fan base that can drive in and out to the game. And Charlotte sold a little over 30,000 tickets before we knew which teams were going to be in the game. That’s not quite where we want or need for it to be, but it’s a great start."

Although Kelly said exact numbers aren't available, he said tickets sales in Jacksonville (2005-'07) and Tampa ('08-'09) never exceeded more than 30,000 by the start of football season.

4) A new home After spending three forgettable years in Jacksonville, Fla., and two more in Tampa, Fla., the ACC championship game is coming to Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium on Dec.4. ACC and Charlotte tourism officials hope bringing the game to the geographic center of the conference will generate ticket sales. Will Webb, the executive director for Charlotte Collegiate Football, said 38,000 seats have been sold. About 4,000 seats remain available on the stadium's lower level. "Everything seems to be falling into place," Webb said. "We're excited about it. We really want to make Charlotte the long-term home for the ACC football championship."
