GREENSBORO, N.C.– The Atlantic Coast Conference announced Tuesday it has moved the 2021 ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament from Washington to Greensboro due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The tournament will be held at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro from March 9-13.

The tournament originally was scheduled to be played at Capital One Arena in Washington.

The tournament will return to Washington in 2024.

“The ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament has enjoyed terrific experiences and hospitality at Capital One Arena,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “We look forward to returning to Washington, D.C., and appreciate Greensboro for welcoming and accommodating us during these unique and challenging times.”

The ACC previously announced the 2022 event will be held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and the 2023 event will return to Greensboro Coliseum.

Greensboro Coliseum has hosted the ACC Tournament more than any other venue and will welcome the event for the 28th time in 2021.

  1. The day they shut it down last spring was a very sad day. I’ll never forget driving by the empty parking lot at the coliseum on the way home from work that day. Better days are on the way!

  2. Very well said….Let’s hope that they can get the games in this year and that fans can attend the games at the Greensboro Coliseum in full force…

    Also hoping that we have the Vaccine out by then, and all have been vaccinated…

  3. I am a long time Notre Dame fan and I got to see the last game played last spring with my Irish coming out with a W in the ACC Tournament.
