Greensboro, North Carolina, which had been scheduled to host the 2020 Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament before the event was canceled due to COVID-19, will get to host the event in 2023. ACC Commissioner John Swofford announced that the conference will return to the Greensboro Coliseum for what will be the 28th time for the event.
The ACC is headquartered in Greensboro.
“The partnership between the ACC and the city of Greensboro is extremely special, and one that has spanned nearly seven decades,” Swofford said. “The decision to bring the ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament back to the Greensboro Coliseum was the right thing to do and we look forward to returning in 2023. We also appreciate the annual hospitality shown to our teams, schools, alumni and fans while hosting the ACC Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships, the ACC Women’s Basketball Championship and the ACC Women’s Golf Championship.”
The event has been held in eight cities and 12 venues since the inaugural event in March 1954.
