Miami, which has become used to playing in front of packed houses of late, will get another one when it heads to Charlotte in three weeks.

The ACC Championship Game between UM and Clemson is sold out, the conference announced Wednesday. It is the fourth time in seven years in Charlotte the game has sold out (2010, ’11, ’15, ’17).

That’s hardly all Clemson fans, either.

UM’s initial allotment of tickets, not including 500 seats for band and students, was 5,000. It requested and received 2,500 more. It expects to sell them all.

“Response has been overwhelming,” a UM spokesperson said. “There will be a lot of orange and green in Charlotte.”

Bank of America Stadium, home of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers, seats 75,412.

Want to sit in the Miami section? Hurricane Club members can request tickets through 5 p.m. Monday by calling the UM ticket office.

At 8 p.m. Wednesday, StubHub.com showed tickets starting at $115.

The website also had tickets starting at $19 for the Miami-Virginia game (noon Saturday, ABC)
