ACC extends deals with North Carolina sites after law change

AP Exclusive ‘Bathroom Bill’ to Cost North Carolina $3.7 Billion

SC had been locked out of hosting NCAA neutral-site championships for 14 years as the Confederate flag flew on the state Capitol grounds.

"Clearly, they (NCAA) wanted a clean repeal of House Bill 2, as did I", Governor Roy Cooper said.

After the state passed the "bathroom bill", the collegiate governing body announced it would boycott North Carolina, arguing the bill did not promote a safe, healthy and discrimination-free environment for athletes and fans.

Women's Soccer: The semifinals and finals of the women's soccer tournament will be held at WakeMed Soccer Park in 2018. In 2012, they pulled six planned championship events in New Jersey, specifically citing the "integrity of the game" and "concerns for student-athlete well-being" as its reason for doing so.

The NCAA has awarded championships to Greensboro, Raleigh and Cary over the next four years. Mike Meno with ALCU NC added: "It's disappointing when the NCAA said they weren't going to have events in North Carolina, it was because we couldn't guarantee non-discrimination protections for all people and under state law we still can't do that. We are thrilled to renew our relationships with so many terrific people, outstanding cities and first-class venues".

We will, of course, host first and second round March Madness games next year. The 2018 event will be held in Brooklyn before returning to Charlotte in 2019 and Greensboro in 2020. This makes up for the game Charlotte lost to Orlando last season due to North Carolina's passage of House Bill 2.

Much like the first leg, Madrid weathered the early storm and had plenty of chances to go in front before half time. Real boss Zidane said: "We played 120 minutes and in the end some players have finished a bit worse for wear".

The NCAA announced Tuesday that the 2020 and 2021 Stagg Bowls will be played at the newly-renovated Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, next door to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton.

The affected events included this year's Division I Men's Basketball Championship first and second rounds, which were held last month.

In addition to basketball, the city learned that it would host an NCAA regional men's and women's track meet at the University of NorthFlorida's Hodges Stadium in 2019 and 2021. The Coliseum is now set to play host to the tournament through 2023. Overall attendance at the Greensboro Coliseum has exceeded 60,000 eight times since 2006.

Scheduled to open this September, Little Caesars Arena in Detroit was awarded the 2020 Men's Frozen Four and the 2022 Division I Wrestling Championships. Three of the ACC Baseball Championship's 10 largest overall attendance figures have been posted at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

Of the 133 reported North Carolina bids, 21 were successful. Cary will also the 2018 and 2020 Division 1 Women's Soccer College Cup. McConnell Golf is contracted for the event through 2021. The sixth championship, Division III women's ice hockey, does not select predetermined sites.
