This is what those that haven't been to it in Greensboro miss.


The whole city of Greensboro gets involved in the ACC tournament. The ACC Fan Fest events outside the Coliseum and in the Pavilion next door have a lot of stuff to do for kids. That event is very family friendly. That appeals to a lot of the traditional ACC fans. I don't know if that could continue at the Brooklyn and Verizon Center venues. Those seem more adult oriented to me. I know that Charlotte and Orlando both had a FanFest for the football championship game, and Durham has one for the baseball tournament.

You could have one in Philadelphia at that XFinity Complex next to the Philadelphia sports complex if we had it in Philly.
