CHARLOTTE, N.C. With only a few days before the A.C.C. Football Championship at Charlotte s Bank of America stadium, it appears there are thousands of empty seats left.

The last two A.C.C. championships, also in Charlotte, had sell-out crowds.

Ticketing website StubHub advertised having more than 8,000 tickets to Saturday s game, featuring Florida State versus Georgia Tech, going for as little as $3.95 a piece.

For comparison, the S.E.C. championship game in Atlanta Saturday has only 2,000 tickets left, selling for a minimum of $320 each.

Businesses in uptown remain optimistic about the crowds.

I don't think we're worried about it. I think we'll be packed still. Even though all the tickets haven't sold out like they have in the past years, said Jennifer McDade, server and cook at Picasso s Sports Bar.

McDade believes the bar will see more patrons than it sees on a Panthers home game.

It will still be bigger than a Panthers gameday, because there are so many people coming outta town for this.

Fans will be entertained by a day-long FanFest at the stadium during the day before kick-off Saturday nigh.t
