ACC Kickoff to be held virtually

The annual ACC Football Kickoff will be held virtually July 21-23, 2020 as players and coaches will do interviews with the media via video conference. The event is typically held in Charlotte, N.C., each summer.

ACC commissioner John Swofford will speak on the ACC Network, which will also provide other interviews.

“As we continue to navigate the necessary steps surrounding COVID-19, transitioning this year’s ACC Football Kickoff from an in-person event to a virtual experience is the best option to provide media access to our coaches and student-athletes,” Swofford said in a statement. “Our primary focus in all decisions continues to be the health and welfare of our student-athletes, coaches, and in this specific instance, all of our media partners and event attendees.”

All of the Power 5 conferences have now moved their media events online.
