The ACC announced future dates for the ACC Tournament in Washington and Brooklyn on Thursday afternoon.
Capital One Arena in Washington will host the tournament in 2021, and Barclays Center, the site of the tournament in 2017 and 2018, will again host in 2022. The tournament will be in North Carolina the next two seasons. The Spectrum Center in Charlotte will play host to this season’s ACC Tournament, and the Greensboro Coliseum will host the event in 2020.
Barclays Center set attendance records while hosting the ACC Tournament the past two seasons, the first time that it’s hosted the event.
Greensboro will be hosting the ACC Tournament for the 27th time, more than any other location. Charlotte will be hosting the tournament for the 12th time. Washington has hosted the tournament twice prior, in 2005 and more recently in 2016.
The ACC Tournament has been held in eight cities spanning 12 venues since starting in 1954.
“The next four years of the ACC Tournament will be played in locations that are tremendously meaningful to the ACC, our players, coaches, alumni and fans,” ACC Commissioner John Swofford said in a release. “All four cities offer first-class venues and hospitality for our league, and we appreciate the continued partnership with each of these outstanding communities.”
Virginia won the ACC Tournament last season in Brooklyn, defeating North Carolina, 71-63 in the final to clinch the tournament title.

The Cavaliers will play at Maryland on Nov. 28 at 7 p.m. in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. The game will be broadcast on either ESPN or ESPN2. The game time and network was announced on Thursday afternoon.
The old ACC rivals last played on Dec. 3, 2014, in College Park, with UVa winning 76-65.
