ACC picks new sites for 8 championships pulled from NC
GREENSBORO, N.C. - The Atlantic Coast Conference has picked new sites for eight of the championships it is moving from North Carolina because of a law that restricts the rights of LGBT people.
League officials on Tuesday said four championships are moving to Georgia, three more are headed to South Carolina and another is set for Kentucky.
The ACC last month said it would move 10 neutral-site championships out of North Carolina because of the law.
Last week, the league awarded this season's football championship game to Orlando, Florida. The latest announcement addresses every sport affected by the relocation decision except women's basketball.
League spokesman Steve Phillips says that site has not yet been determined.
