ACC Football Kickoff goes virtual

The ACC is moving its football media days online, making it the last of the 10 FBS leagues to announce it is going virtual because of concerns about COVID-19.

The ACC Football Kickoff was scheduled to be held at The Westin in Charlotte, N.C. It has been rescheduled for July 21-23, with coverage on the ACC Network. Commissioner John Swofford, each of the conference’s 14 head coaches — including Georgia Tech’s Geoff Collins — and selected players will be featured.

“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.”
