ACC Tournament Moving To Barclays Center In 2017?
The ACC is finalizing agreements with the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York to move the postseason tournament there starting as early as 2017, according to Sports Illustrated.
The tournament returns to Greensboro next year, then travels to Washington, D.C. in 2016.
While many wondered if the historic Madison Square Garden would be the home, that option wasn’t available due to the venue’s agreement with the Big East until 2026.
The Barclays has a similar issue as the Atlantic 10 conference concludes its five-year agreement with the arena in 2017. The A-10’s presidents and athletic directors meet Friday morning to discuss the future of the league.
ACC tournament action remains close to home for one more year, but with the addition of more teams to the north, a move to the Empire State is right around the corner.
