Charlotte Sports Foundation
Charlotte Sports Foundation is the organization that operates the two major college football events in the city of Charlotte; the Belk Bowl and the Dr Pepper ACC Championship Game.
About the Belk Bowl
Established in 2002, the Belk Bowl is one of the most successful college bowl game start-ups in NCAA history. In ten games, the Belk Bowl has averaged 60,000 fans each year.
About the ACC Football Championship
After adding Miami and Virginia Tech to the conference in 2004, the Atlantic Coast Conference welcomed Boston College in 2005 as its 12th member institution. With the expanded conference, the ACC created two divisions, the Atlantic and Coastal, and pitted the champions of each in the Inaugural Atlantic Coast Conference Championship Game on December 3, 2005 in Jacksonville, Florida. The winner of the championship earns the ACC bid to play in the Discover Orange Bowl, if not selected for the BCS National Championship Game.
