CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Atlantic Coast Conference and the Charlotte Sports Foundation announced they’ve reached an agreement on a six-year contract extension that will keep the conference’s football championship game in Charlotte through 2019.

The announcement was made at a news conference Monday in Charlotte, home of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers.

The game has thrived since moving from Tampa, Fla., to a more centralized location in Charlotte in 2010 with an average yearly attendance of nearly 70,000 fans the past four years. The 2011 game between Clemson and Virginia Tech set an ACC championship game record with 73,675 fans attending the title game in Charlotte.

This past season, Florida State defeated Duke in the ACC championship game en route to winning the BCS national championship.
