The conference worked to restructure contracts with venues that had multi-year agreements to compensate for events that were moved in 2016-17, the league said.
In September, the ACC announced it would be pulling all 10 of its neutral site championships for 2016-17 from the state of North Carolina due to House Bill Two.
