The ACC is going to the movies. Literally.

ESPN announced Tuesday afternoon that the company has paired with Theater Sports Network to broadcast ACC football games this fall. The games include weekly matchups, New Year’s Six Bowl games, including the Cotton Bowl and Orange Bowl, as well as the 2024 College Football Playoff.

Altogether, the deal results in 75 games being broadcast. According to ESPN’s press release, road games for the visiting team’s market will be able to watch Theater Sports Network while both home and road team fan bases are able to view during neutral site meetings.

Theater Sports Network President and CEO Scott Daw expressed his excitement Tuesday in moving forward to a new avenue of live sports viewing in 2023.

“We believe movie theaters are the next great frontier for live sporting events, and we are elated with this unprecedented agreement with ESPN,” Daw said. “We look forward to bringing these games to ACC football fans. We believe that theaters have the ability to generate excitement around live sporting events. These events will replicate the feel of a football stadium experience as fans gather and fill theaters to watch the games on the big screen.”

Daw mentioned he wants to expand coverage to additional conferences and future events.

MetaMedia has partnered with the network to live stream the games and is currently connected to over 5,000 screens in the country. Cinemark previously worked with ESPN during the 2021 and 2022 seasons to showcase the College Football Playoff semifinal and National Championship games.
