ACC Extends Deals With North Carolina Sites after Law Revision

GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Atlantic Coast Conference has added a replacement year to contracts for North Carolina venues that lost championships when the league relocated events due to a law limiting protections against LGBT people.

The ACC had pulled 10 neutral-site championships for the 2016-17 season. The state passed a compromise bill to roll back elements of the law in March, and the league announced a day later it would return to North Carolina in 2017-18.

The league announced Wednesday that restructured contracts would “compensate” venues with a replacement year as a host. That comes a day after the NCAA awarded several championship events to North Carolina from 2019-22 due to the law change.

Most notably, the ACC football title game will remain in Charlotte through 2020 instead of 2019.
