Clemson Files Lawsuit Against the ACC

CLEMSON, S.C – Clemson University filed a lawsuit against the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) on Tuesday.

The ACC owns the broadcast rights to home games played through 2036, even if the institution ends its membership with the conference. For institutions to leave the conference, there is a $140 million penalty.

In the lawsuit, Clemson says the extension of the ACC’s media rights hinders the university’s ability to negotiate alternative revenue-sharing proposals for home game broadcasts and “explore its options regarding conference membership.”
