Raycom Sports will also continue to manage the ACC’s official corporate partner program and the exploitation of its digital assets, including www.theACC.com, the official Conference Web site.

ESPN, ESPN2 and ABC will televise ACC games each week, including Thursday, Saturday and a Labor Day Monday telecast each season. The ACC Football Championship Game will continue to be televised each year on ESPN, ESPN2 and ABC.

Highlights of the new agreement include:

• Regular-season football on Saturday afternoon and nights, primetime Thursdays, Labor Day Monday and the ACC Football Championship Game.
• Men’s basketball, including both regular-season matchups of Duke-North Carolina.
• Women’s regular-season basketball games and the entire conference tournament.
• An expanded commitment to the league’s 22-sponsored Olympic sports with regular-season and championship telecasts.
   
According to ACC Commissioner John Swofford, “We are excited to be continuing our partnership with ESPN and Raycom Sports. This agreement allows our schools to reach significantly new financial heights while also showcasing more ACC content and coverage than ever before across traditional and new media platforms.”

Added Ken Haines, President and CEO of Raycom Sports, "We are very excited to continue our 30 year partnership with the ACC and ESPN. Throughout the ever-changing landscape of sports television, we have always prided ourselves on the long term relationships we have with both the ACC and ESPN."
