ACC announced it would relocate the ACC Football Championship and other neutral site championships for the 2016-17 academic year because of the North Carolina House Bill 2. The 2016 ACC Football Championship was scheduled to be in Charlotte.

Here is the official team statement from the Carolina Panthers that was supposed to host the Championship from their Bank of America Stadium.

"We are aware of the decision from the Atlantic Coast Conference. Although we are disappointed, we remain steadfast in providing an inclusive environment at Bank of America Stadium. As we stated last summer, after more than 20 years of operations, we undoubtedly have had transgender persons attend events here and, presumably, they have used the restroom of the gender with which they identify. Our organization is against discrimination and has a long history of treating all of our patrons at Bank of America Stadium with dignity and respect."
