ATHENS — The Georgia football season-opening game against Clemson has been announced as having a 7:30 p.m. kickoff in Charlotte, N.C. on Sept. 4.

Bank of America Stadium is billed as a neutral site, but Clemson will find a very familiar feeling under the lights in Charlotte.

The Tigers are 7-1 all-time at Bank of America Stadium, with a 6-0 record in ACC Championship Games played there, and a 1-0 mark regular-season play (vs. Temple in 2006).

Georgia last played in Charlotte in 2014, beating Louisville 37-14 in the Belk Bowl under former coach Mark Richt.

The Bulldogs opened that 2014 campaign by beating Clemson 45-21 in Athens in the team’s most recent meeting.

The Tigers have not lost a regular-season game to an SEC team since then.

This season’s opening game between Georgia and Clemson is the first of six that are scheduled over the course of the next 14 seasons.

The Bulldogs will clash again in the 2024 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta, and they have home-and-home series on the schedule for 2029-2030 and 2032-2033. Georgia will be the host team at Sanford Stadium in the 2030 and 2032 games.

For now, all attention is focused on the Georgia-Clemson upcoming game in Charlotte.

The North Carolina governor recently announced the state is lifting restrictions on mass gatherings -- meaning the UGA-Clemson game in Charlotte will be at full capacity of more than 75,000 fans.
