Charlotte, North Carolina – The Charlotte Sports Foundation (CSF) announced that the 2020 Duke’s Mayo Classic has 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, www.DukesMayoClassic.com.
“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. We now look forward to an exciting game between two great teams to end the regular season.”
