Philips Arena To Host 2012 ACC Men's Basketball Tournament

Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford announced today that Philips Arena in Atlanta, Ga., will host the 2012 ACC Men's Basketball Tournament.

The selection of Philips Arena as the 2012 venue marks the sixth time the city of Atlanta will serve as host for the ACC Tournament. The league's tournament has been held in The Omni in 1983, 1985 and 1989 while the Georgia Dome served as the host site in 2001 and for second time, last year, in 2009.

"The City of Atlanta is a great partner and our league is truly excited to return for the 2012 ACC Tournament," said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. "Playing in Philips Arena provides our teams and fans with a more traditional and intimate environment which will serve our league well. The ACC Tournament continues to be one of the most special events in all of sports and we are proud of that tradition and success."

The 2001 ACC Tournament still stands as the most-attended conference basketball tournament in NCAA history for both total attendance (182,525) and per session attendance (36,505).

A year ago 158,112 fans attended the ACC Tournament held in the Georgia Dome for an average session attendance of 26,352 - both totals are the second-highest marks in NCAA history.

The dates and site for the next six ACC Tournaments are listed below.
