The ACC has cancelled seven conference events in the State of North Carolina this year regarding HB2. The ACC Conference Championship game slated to be played again in Charlotte on December 3rd may be relocated. North Carolina has already lost the NBA All Star game, and the NCAA recently decided not to hold organization-sponsored events in the state beyond an individual home team having earned the opportunity to host.

North Carolina is taking a HUGE financial hit over this law. In addition to the 9 ACC championships and the 7 NCAA championships already pulled, there could be more. The CIAA is headquartered in North Carolina and holds most of their championships (including football and basketball) in the state. The MEAC and Big South also have championships in North Carolina scheduled for this school year. And we all know how much North Carolina loves college sports.


According to below, "It has not been announced where the 2016 ACC Championship Game will move. Possible replacement sites include Jacksonville, Orlando, Miami and Washington, D.C."

They should bring uconn in like they did with ND all sport minus football that way their at 16 teams for all other sports


That's a plausible idea, Dirt. However, UConn would need a scheduling agreement in fb, like ND, with the ACC. It would be difficult for UConn to function as a fb independent on a high level without a number of assured games.

The ACC wants ND FT for #15. Another that may be considered for #16 would be WVU, if available when the time comes. Cincy has been trying for the ACC as well.

Texas, apparently, had been exploring with the ACC about a ND-type affiliation. Doubtful that will happen.
