“The Duke-Carolina rivalry is the best rivalry in American sports due to the proximity of the universities and the sustained excellence of each program. The rivalry is further intensified because the fans of both teams live and work amongst one another," added Pinto.
As the film’s theatrical premiere at Durham’s Carolina Theatre on October 1st draws near, Pinto and GreatestFan, LLC want fans to experience the hoopla live. "To one very, very lucky fan we are giving a pair of tickets to each of the 2014 Duke-Carolina games at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham and the Dean E. Smith Center in Chapel Hill. The winner will be announced at the Carolina Theatre premiere," Pinto said.
