For the past 36 years, The Sumner Group has sponsored and coordinated the ACC Barnstorming Tour. Over the years, the Tour has provided a rare up-close-and-personal look at such standout players as Michael Jordan, Len Bias, Dereck Whittenburg, Tyler Hansbrough, Nolan Smith, and Tyler Zeller to fans of all ages across the southeastern United States. This season promises to be another exciting year in Barnstorming history. The tour will consist of eight games over three weeks following the completion of the NCAA Final Four in April.
This year's roster includes: UNC's Leslie McDonald, Duke's Tyler Thornton, Josh Hairston, and Andre Dawkins, N.C. State's Jordan Vandenberg, and Wake Forest's Coron Williams and Travis McKie. These ACC All-Stars will be coached by UNC legend Phil Ford.
In addition to the basketball games, each stop will also consist of a 3-point contest and a dunk contest. Players will be available following the game for a limited autograph session with general admission ticketholders. VIP ticketholders will enjoy reserved front row seating to the game, a post game reception with the ACC All-Stars, and a photo/autograph session. A portion of the proceeds from each game will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House. Additional proceeds will also benefit each hosting high school.
Doors open each night at 6:00 pm and the game starts at 7:30 pm
