The ACC announced Tuesday that the 2021 ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament will be held at Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina, from March 9-13. The tournament originally was scheduled to be played at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C., which will now play host to the 2024 event.

The decision to relocate the March 2021 event was due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“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 hosted the first two rounds of the 2020 tournament before it was canceled.

The 2021 ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament will also be held at Greensboro Coliseum, as previously announced. The event is scheduled from March 3-7.
