The Aug. 2 Guinness International Champions Cup soccer match at Bank of America Stadium has been declared an Extraordinary Event.


Charlotte City Manager Ron Carlee made the declaration Wednesday afternoon for the game between the Liverpool FC and AC Milan. The match starts at 6:30 p.m.


Carlee, in consultation with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police, determined the match meets criteria defined by city code as a large-scale event or an event of national or international significance that might attract a significant number of people to a certain area of the city. More than 60,000 tickets have been sold for the match. Previous gatherings that warranted the Extraordinary Events tag, in which certain items are prohibited from the event boundaries, include the Democratic National Convention and the CIAA basketball tournament.


A fan fest will be held on Saturday, which necessitates the closing of South Mint Street from west Morehead Street to Graham and Stonewall starting at 10 a.m. for vendor set-up. The festival will be open to the public from 4 p.m. until the game’s start. It will not include alcohol sales, food sales or entertainment. The streets will remain closed until 10 p.m.


The ordinance does not affect normal daily activities.
