Greensboro, North Carolina: 'Tournament Town' Evolves
Greensboro, North Carolina, is called "Tournament Town" for many reasons. The ACC is headquartered here, and the Greensboro Coliseum has hosted the ACC Men's Basketball Tournament 26 times and the ACC Women's Basketball Tournament 16 times. The arena also was home to the 2015 NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Regional Championship in March, and will host preliminary rounds of the 2017 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament. But over the past year, Greensboro tourism officials have been able to make the city an even more tempting destination for championship-level competitions in everything from volleyball and gymnastics to figure skating and wrestling.
