Event Resume

Image

Tournament Town - it's a moniker that has become synonymous with Greensboro, N.C. Because of the number of college sports championships contested in the city through the years, Greensboro became known as Tournament Town after hosting the ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament, the ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament and the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball First & Second Rounds on back-to-back-back weeks in 2006 and eventually trademarked the name. The three tournaments were again scheduled for the Greensboro Coliseum Complex in 2020.

The Tournament Town tradition started with the city’s college basketball history – the Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament has been played in the Greensboro Coliseum 27 times while the same arena played host to the ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament 20 times – both more than any other venue.

Add countless NCAA championships, including the 1974 NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four and annual NCAA and ACC Swimming & Diving Championships, and the picture comes into focus.  However, the Tournament Town Tradition is more than college basketball. The City of Greensboro is nationally known for its wealth of world class athletic venues and overall excellence in hosting sports events at the highest level. Its venues are an integral component in Greensboro’s extensive event resume, below, which includes successful hosting of myriad amateur, collegiate and professional championships in a wide variety of sports including basketball, swimming & diving, amateur and professional golf, figure skating, gymnastics, soccer and more.
