When this year’s ACC men’s basketball tournament in Greensboro was canceled after just two days of play due to the COVID-19 outbreak, no one was sure when — or if — it would return to the Gate City.

The answer came Tuesday when the league announced the 2023 ACC Tournament will be held at Greensboro Coliseum. It will be the 28th time the venue will host the tournament, the most in the league’s history.

“The partnership between the ACC and the city of Greensboro is extremely special, and one that has spanned nearly seven decades,” ACC Commissioner John Swofford said. “The decision to bring the ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament back to the Greensboro Coliseum was the right thing to do and we look forward to returning in 2023. We also appreciate the annual hospitality shown to our teams, schools, alumni and fans while hosting the ACC Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships, the ACC Women’s Basketball Championship and the ACC Women’s Golf Championship.”

Next year’s tournament is scheduled for Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C., followed by the 2022 tournament in Brooklyn, New York, at Barclays Center.
