About the Game

Located in the heart of college football country, and home to the newly renovated Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte is the perfect location to kick off the college football season.

Bank of America Stadium has hosted college football since 2002, and with the success of the Belk Bowl and the addition of the Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game, there’s no better place to start the college football season than the Belk College Kickoff in Charlotte.
