The Charlotte Sports Foundation (CSF) announced today that the 2020 Duke’s Mayo Bowl between the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and Wisconsin Badgers will not be open for the general public to attend. The decision was made jointly by county public health officials, Bank of America Stadium, and CSF after careful review of the most recent COVID-19 data and guidance.
Families and friends of the teams and bowl organizer will be the only spectators allowed in Bank of America Stadium. There will be no public ticket sales for the game.
Scheduled for Wednesday, December 30th in Charlotte, N.C. with a noon kickoff, the Duke’s Mayo Bowl will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.
“Our first priority when hosting the Duke’s Mayo Bowl is the safety of all participants, from the teams and coaches to the fans, staff and community,” said Executive Director Danny Morrison. “We look forward to Wake Forest and Wisconsin having a great game in Charlotte in front of their families and friends.”
This is the first year with Carolinas-founded Duke’s Mayonnaise as the title sponsor. The partnership with Duke’s Mayonnaise, a staple in southern recipes for over 100 years, was announced this past June. It also features for the first time a matchup of the Atlantic Coast Conference against the Big Ten Conference.
An automatic refund of all ticket purchases through the Charlotte Sports Foundation and Ticketmaster will be applied to the same method of payment used to purchase tickets within 30 days following this announcement.
