ACC Brings Events Back To N.C., Extends Agreements To Compensate For Lost Year

Published

ACC championship events are returning to North Carolina and contracts with venues that had multiyear agreements with the conference were "extended a year to compensate for games that were relocated" following the HB2 drama, according to a front-page piece by Peralta & Cioffi of the CHARLOTTE OBSERVER. The ACC’s contract for the football title game at Bank of America Stadium now runs through '20. Other championship events returning to the state include women’s basketball, baseball, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s golf, and men’s and women’s tennis during the '17-18 academic year, and the ACC women’s soccer championship "will follow suit" in November '18 (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 4/20). In Charlotte, Jen Wilson noted the ACC Football Championship has been a "sellout in three of its past six years" in Charlotte. The move to bring events back to North Carolina "follows a similar decision by the NCAA" (BIZJOURNALS.com, 4/19). In Orlando, Matt Murschel noted Camping World Stadium hosted last season's football title game after ACC officials "voted to relocate the league's championship events" from North Carolina (ORLANDOSENTINEL.com, 4/19). The Charlotte Observer's editorial cartoon today focused on decisions by the NBA, NCAA and ACC to return events to North Carolina after a new, divisive bathroom bill was passed (THE DAILY).
