What has long been speculated is now official: the 2020 ACC Football Championship Game is set for Dec. 19 in Charlotte. Kickoff time remains unknown, for now; however, that information will be released no later Dec. 7. With Bank of America Stadium playing host, ESPN or ABC will have the call.
Starting Oct. 2, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper allowed larger in-state outdoor venues to host crowds of 7 percent capacity amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. That policy remains in place for the ACC title game, too. Bank of America Stadium has a capacity of 75,412; this likely means a crowd of around 5,200-5,300 will be permitted to attend.

There are no divisions this season; the ACC Football Championship Game will take the two teams with the highest winning percentage in conference games.
