Swofford: ACC Will Make Fall Sports Decision in ‘Late July’



The Atlantic Coast Conference will not make a final decision on its fall sports schedule until “late July,” commissioner John Swofford said in a statement on Friday afternoon.

The statement comes on the heels of a Thursday report by Brett McMurphy of Stadium that the conference was expected to forgo non-conference games for the 2020 football season.

The Big Ten and Pac 12 have already made such announcements, with the ACC joining the Big 12 in waiting to make a decision.

“The health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches and administrators remains the ACC’s top priority,” Swofford said. “As we continue to work on the best possible path forward for the return of competition, we will do so in a way that appropriately coincides with our universities’ academic missions. Over the last few months, our conference has prepared numerous scenarios related to the fall athletics season. The league membership and our medical advisory group will make every effort to be as prepared as possible during these unprecedented times, and we anticipate a decision by our Board of Directors in late July.”

The ACC has already announced that it has pushed back the start of the fall sports season for all teams to Sept. 1.
