Statement from NCAA on Confederate flag legislation

The NCAA announced via a statement on Thursday afternoon that the state of South Carolina can bid on Championship events now that the Confederate flag is coming down.

"We commend South Carolina lawmakers for taking this action to remove the Confederate flag from the Capitol grounds. For nearly 15 years we have specifically protested the flag by not allowing states like South Carolina to host pre-selected NCAA championships. With this impending change, and consistent with our policy, South Carolina may bid to host future NCAA championships once the flag no longer flies at the State House grounds."

The NCAA since 2001 has not allowed the state of South Carolina to host any predetermined postseason events. Sporting events such as the men's NCAA basketball tournament and NCAA men's baseball tournament can now be played again in the Palmetto State. Possible cities that could potentially be affected positively financially would be Columbia, Myrtle Beach, Charleston, Greenville, etc.

The flag is expected to be removed from the state grounds at 10 AM EST and then the sanctions will be lifted.
