As world-class athletes and spectators from schools across the ACC travel to Louisville’s west end to compete, we are excited about the athletic excellence that will be on display and the economic impact this will bring to our community.”

This is the first time the Cardinals have hosted the ACC Championships since joining the conference in 2015 and it’s the first time the event has ever been held in Louisville. All fifteen ACC schools should be represented at the conference championship, and the event is expected to draw 1,000 athletes in addition to coaches and support staff and approximately 2,000 spectators. Officials project that the event could bolster the city with an estimated economic impact of $2.2 million. 

“Hosting the ACC Championships is further affirmation that the Norton Healthcare Sports and Learning Center is a world class facility, a remarkable space for world class athletes and high achievers to gather and compete at the highest level,” said Louisville Sports Commission President and CEO Karl Schmitt. 

The center is one of only nine banked indoor track and field facilities in the nation, which made it a prime site for the championships. 

University of Louisville track and field Head Coach Dale Cowper also played an integral role in securing the event in Louisville. His team regularly trains and competes at the Norton Healthcare Sports and Learning Center. “The Norton Healthcare Sports and Learning Center will host many outstanding competitions during 2023 but I think the ACC Championships will stand out as a highlight,” said Cowper. “It’s an honor to welcome many of the top teams in the country to West Louisville next February.” 

Opened in February 2021, the center is located at 30th street and Muhammad Ali Boulevard on a 24-acre property in Louisville’s west end. Reynolds was one of the driving forces behind the $53 million project, which was raised through a combination of public and private contributions. The facility boasts 90,000 square-feet of floor space with 4,000 seats, and a 200-meter banked indoor track and a 400-meter outdoor track.
