The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Men's Basketball Tournament is one of the most popular collegiate sporting events in America and boasts some of the oldest rivalries in the sport. The winner of the event receives an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament. The tournament began in 1954, a year after the conference was created, and the first championship game pitted North Carolina State against Wake Forest. The finale was won by N.C. State 82-80 and kicked off years of domination by schools in North Carolina. For the first 17 years of the conference's existence, the ACC Championship was won by a North Carolina college, with the lone exception coming in 1958 when Maryland upset North Carolina to take its first title.
With the arrival of basketball powers like Syracuse, Pitt and Notre Dame, the ACC Men's Basketball Tournament has begun a new era of high-profile rivalries that is bound to create a few classics along the way. The tourney has now taken center stage in the conference championship pool as teams vie to win at-large bids and build up a resumé to make it to the NCAA Tournament.

ACC Basketball Tournament Event Guide
What is the best time to buy tickets for the ACC Tournament?
If you’re just going as a spectator and not a fan of any specific team, buy as early as possible. If you want to see your team, wait until you know what seed they are and then jump on tickets for that session!
Can I buy tickets for just the game that my team is playing in?
For this tournament, tickets are only sold as sessions and therefore you are buying a pass to two games (unless it’s the final).
Where can I find the ACC tournament schedule?
The 2018 ACC tournament schedule is listed as soon as it is made available by the tournament, and TicketCity has all the dates and times posted above for all sessions. The tournament is split up into sessions, with each session containing two games except for the last one, which is just the championship game. The gates usually open one hour before the first game of every session.
Where are good places to park at Barclays Center?
Parking at the Barclays Center is extremely limited. The only real chance of getting a parking spot is to purchase a parking pass in advance and to arrive early. This is a venue where it is not worth the trouble to drive to. We strongly recommend taking the subway. It lets off right next to the arena, is cheap and lets you start the celebration early.
Where are some good places to eat before a ACC Tournament at Barclays Center?
Barclays Center is located in the same neighborhood as some of the best food in the world. If you are looking for something truly Brooklyn, try Bark Hot Dogs. Don’t let the name fool you, this place has artesian sausages and unbelievable milk shakes that will not leave you disappointed. Another great pre-game spot is The Smoke Joint. Offering some of the best barbeque in New York, it is often filled with Nets fans. For trendier places try No.7, or Stonehome Wine Bar and Restaurant. Both are upscale but casual and will satisfy even the most die-hard foodies out there. For quick places that will give you a great Brooklyn experience, try South Brooklyn Pizza, Kulushkat Gourmet Falafel, or Bierkraft.
What teams have won the ACC Basketball Tournament?
