GREENSBORO, N.C. – Last month, the Atlantic Coast Conference relocated all 2016-17 neutral site championships out of North Carolina as a result of the state’s controversial House Bill 2. Tuesday, the ACC announced new host locales and venues for eight of its league championships.
ACC Women’s Soccer Championship, Nov. 4 & 6 – MUSC Health Stadium; Charleston, South Carolina
ACC Women’s Swimming & Diving/Men’s Diving Championships, Feb. 13-16 (change from original date) – Georgia Tech Aquatics Center; Atlanta, Georgia
ACC Men’s Swimming Championship, Feb. 27-March 2 (change from original date) – Georgia Tech Aquatics Center; Atlanta, Georgia
ACC Women’s Golf Championship, April 13-15 (change from original date) – The Reserve Golf Club; Pawley’s Island, South Carolina
ACC Men’s Golf Championship, April 21-23 – Musgrove Mill Golf Club; Clinton, South Carolina
ACC Men’s & Women’s Tennis Championships, April 26-30 – Rome Tennis Center at Berry College; Rome, Georgia
ACC Baseball Championship, May 23-28 – Louisville Slugger Field; Louisville, Kentucky
With the exception of the Georgia Tech Aquatics Center, each of the sites will be hosting an ACC Championship for the first time. Georgia Tech welcomed the ACC Swimming and Diving Championships most recently in 2015 and also served as the host school for the events in 2005, 2008 and 2011.
The unveiling of the new championship sites follows last week’s announcement that the Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game will be played Dec. 3 at Orlando’s Camping World Stadium. Eight states within the ACC footprint are now scheduled to host at least one conference championship in 2016-17.
The ACC will announce additional details, including ticket information for all championships, at a future date. Please continue to check theACC.com.
