Belk Bowl Organizers Prepare for Possibility of Thunderstorms

Game time is almost here in Charlotte. On Wednesday afternoon, NC State and Mississippi State will go head to head in the Belk Bowl at Bank of America Stadium.

Also, Carrie Underwood is set to perform a free concert before the game. Rain is in the forecast with the possibility of thunderstorms.

Belk Bowl organizers tell Fox 46 they don’t expect to make any changes to the schedule, but they’re prepared for the possibility of severe weather.

Will Webb with the Charlotte Sports Foundation said, “We will take into consideration the safety of our fans and patrons and want to make sure they’re safe, but we don’t anticipate any delays at this time.”

Webb says hotels in center city are reporting that they’re 75%-80% full.

Organizers say more than 40,000 tickets have already been sold for Wednesday’s game.
