24 Sep, 2020

The Charlotte Sports Foundation (CSF) announced that this year’s Duke’s Mayo Classichas been rescheduled for Saturday, December 12th. The matchup between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons was postponed this past Tuesday from its original date of September 26th due to COVID-19 testing results and procedures implemented by the University of Notre Dame.

Further game details including location, kickoff time and ticket information will be announced at a later date. Fans may sign up for updated information on the official website,

"After discussions with Notre Dame, Wake Forest and the ACC, the 2020 Duke’s Mayo Classic will now be played on December 12th,” said Danny Morrison, executive director of the Charlotte Sports Foundation. “We are grateful for the opportunity to play the Duke’s Mayo Classic later this season. There have been a lot of changing variables just in the past 24 hours. The most important thing that we should focus on is the fact that the COVID protocols implemented by the teams are working to ensure the safety of the participants. As we continue to follow the updated guidelines and advice of government and public health officials, we will announce additional information about the Duke’s Mayo Classic in the future.”

About the Charlotte Sports Foundation

The mission of the Charlotte Sports Foundation (CSF), a 501(c)(3), is to provide leadership for sports-based initiatives that result in a positive impact on the economy and quality of life in the Charlotte region. CSF?was created in the spring of 2013 as a combined entity of Charlotte’s two primary sports development groups, Charlotte Collegiate Football and the Charlotte Regional Sports Commission. Its origins can be traced to the vision of Charlotte civic leaders after the very successful hosting of the 1994 NCAA Men’s Final Four.

The Foundation also provides support for recruitment and operation of other local sporting events, and spearheads Charlotte’s continued growth as a preferred host for premier national and regional sporting events. CSF’s future regular season football games include East Carolina University vs. Appalachian State University and the University of Georgia vs. Clemson University (2021), and the University of North Carolina vs. the University of South Carolina (2023).
