WASHINGTON – The 2016 ACC basketball tournament will be held at Washington’s Verizon Center, ACC commissioner John Swofford announced on Wednesday.

“We are excited to bring the ACC Tournament back to the nation’s capital in 2016,” Swofford said. “Verizon Center is a tremendous showcase for our event, and the Washington, D.C. area is an appealing tourist destination for our member institutions, as well as the alumni and fans of our teams.”

The 20,000-seat Verizon Center previously hosted the 2005 ACC Tournament.

Greensboro will host the ACC tournament in 2014 and 2015.
