For their troubles, they received a Wake Forest-Notre Dame game, which was canceled after several Covid-related disruptions – followed by a bowl game in December that didn’t allow fans in the stands, interrupted by a broken trophy has been.
This year looks a lot better. Most importantly, the games the food company sponsors here, the Duke’s Mayo Kickoff Classic and the Duke’s Mayo Bowl, will likely be played at the 75,000-seat Bank of America Stadium. And they are likely to be played with no state-set capacity limits.
Last month, NC Governor Roy Cooper said the current 50% capacity limits with a 6 foot social distance separating any group of fans at sporting events will be lifted in June if current Covid trends follow a similar path the recent, steady improvement remain.
In addition, two kickoff games are planned for the BofA Stadium on Labor Day weekend this year. Usually only one game is played here in the preseason.
