ACC Network Set for 24-Hour Marathon of Women’s Sports in Conjunction with espnW Presents: When We Play, A Multi-Platform Event, June 23

  • 24-Hours of Female-Focused Programming in Celebration of the Anniversary of Title IX
  • One-Hour Special Women in the ACC

On June 23, 1972, as part of the Education Amendments, the United States passed Title IX which “requires that no person be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or subjected to discrimination on the basis of sex under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

To celebrate the 48th anniversary of the passing of Title IX, ACC Network (ACCN) will dedicate 24 hours of female-focused programming on Tuesday, June 23 in conjunction with espnW Presents: When We Play, a three-day, women’s sport-centric, multi-platform initiative (June 21-23).

Beginning at midnight ET, female athletes and women’s sporting events from across the ACC will be showcased on ACCN for a full day of programming. A day of buzzer beaters, record breakers, upsets and championships will highlight these phenomenal athletes, trailblazing head coaches and sport programs.

Programming highlights:

  • 2020 ACC Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships
  • Florida State softball winning its first Women’s College World Series crown in 2018 over Washington led by Most Outstanding Player Jessie Warren
  • 2019 ACC Field Hockey Championship match featuring North Carolina and national player of the year Erin Matson against Boston College
  • 2009 and 2018 Women’s College Cup finals spotlighting title-winning performances by North Carolina (2009) and Florida State (2018)
  • 2018 NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship game featuring Arike Ogunbowale’s buzzer beater to give Notre Dame its second national title in program history
  • 2019 and 2020 ACC Women’s Basketball Championship title games, Notre Dame vs Louisville and Florida State vs NC State, respectively
