“Charlotte is one of the best sports towns in the country and a growing destination for sports events so having the ACC call Charlotte home bolsters our reputation nationally,” Mayor Vi Lyles said.
Conference realignment has become a central focus, emphasizing the need for the Power 5 conference like the ACC to not fall behind the ball.
As it stands, the ACC consists of 15 schools across 10 states, which are primarily located on the East Coast. The conference showcases 27 sports with 10,000 student-athletes.
The ACC was founded in Greensboro 70 years ago.
