The worst kept secret in college football is officially official.

The ACC title game is moving from Charlotte to Orlando, the league announced Wednesday morning.

The game will be on Saturday, Dec. 3 at either 7:45 or 8 p.m., on ESPN or ABC at Camping World Stadium - the same stadium where Florida State opened its season. FSU remains in the mix to challenge for another trip to Orlando, while Miami looks like the frontrunner in the Coastal Division.

The game had been scheduled to be played in Charlotte before the ACC removed all of its athletic championships from North Carolina over a state law limiting protections for LGBT people. The ACC Council of Presidents voted earlier this month to relocate the league's championships until North Carolina repeals the law.

Tickets for Florida Citrus Sports members will go on sale on Oct. 5, and tickets for the  general public will go on sale on Oct. 10. Tickets will also be available through the two qualifying schools. 

The Florida High School Athletic Associaton's state football championship games will all take place between Dec. 8-10 as a result. Classes A, 2A, 3A and 4A were scheduled to be held Dec. 2-3 but are shifted to Dec. 8-9 at Camping World Stadium.
