The ACC and Charlotte Knights have announced this morning at a press conference the 2020 ACC Baseball Championship will be held at BB&T Ballpark from May 19 to May 24, 2020. The ACC Baseball Championship will return to the Charlotte area for the first time since 2000 and 2001 (Knights Stadium in Fort Mill) having been held in Durham, NC five of the last seven seasons.
“In conjunction with the Charlotte Sports Foundation and Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority, we are very pleased to announce that Mecklenburg County, the City of Charlotte, and BB&T Ballpark have won the bid to host the 2020 ACC Baseball Championship,” said Charlotte Knights COO, Dan Rajkowski. “This is a tremendous opportunity to showcase our great city for a full week’s worth of exciting baseball games. These games will bring in fans from throughout the region and around the country. We would like to thank the ACC for their commitment to bringing the Championship to Charlotte.”
Charlotte’s BB&T Ballpark has been Minor League Baseball’s most visited venue since it opened in 2014 and the city continues to be a destination for large-scale events.
“The City of Charlotte and BB&T Ballpark will be excellent hosts to our baseball championship,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “We appreciate our ongoing partnership with Charlotte and the commitment they continue to show in hosting our league events and championships.”
