The Atlantic Coast Conference has made a strong effort to continue hosting tournament championships within the state of North Carolina.

On Thursday, the conference announced that those plans remain true through at least 2030.

As approved by the league's membership, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced that Charlotte, Greensboro, Cary, Durham, and Raleigh will host numerous future neutral site conference championships over the next few years. Half of the conference’s 28 sponsored sports are named, including the ACC Men’s and Women's Basketball Championships, as well as other notable Olympic Sports.

After this year's event, the ACC Men's Basketball Championship will be hosted in the state of North Carolina over the next five seasons. Charlotte will host in 2025, 2026, and 2028, while Greensboro will handle hosting duties for the 2027 and 2029 events.

The ACC Women's Basketball Championships will also split time between the two cities, but will be opposite of the men's tournament. Greensboro will host the women's event in 2024 and 2025, while the event will shift to Charlotte in 2027. At this point, no host for the 2026 tournament has been released.

Additionally, the ACC Baseball Championship will alternate sites between two cities over the next six years, as Charlotte and Durham will step up to the plate as host sites.

In the official press release from the Atlantic Coast Conference, Commissioner Jim Phillips, Ph.D., expressed his excitement for the future of the conference's neutral site championship contests.

β€œWe are incredibly proud to announce this tremendous package of neutral site championships that will be held in the State of North Carolina, where the league was founded more than 70 years ago. Each of these outstanding cities and venues will provide a first-class experience for our student-athletes, coaches, institutions, alumni and fans over the next seven years. We are also pleased to have been able to deliver so quickly on our commitment to continue to hold numerous tournaments and championships in cities across the State of North Carolina as part of the ACC Board of Directors' decision to relocate the conference office headquarters to Charlotte.”

This announcement is great news for the North Carolina Tar Heels, as they'll be able to continue staying in-state to kick off postseason play in various sports.
