North Carolina Loses More Major Sporting Events Over Bathroom Law

The city of Charlotte lost the NBA All-Star Game over North Carolina's controversial bathroom law, and now the state has lost many more major sporting events.

The NCAA announced it would pull seven championship events from North Carolina including:
  • Division I women's soccer championship College Cup, slated for Cary, N.C., Dec. 2 and 4.
  • Division III men's and women's soccer championship in Greensboro, Dec. 2-3.
  • Division I men's basketball tournament first/second rounds in Greensboro, March 17 and 19, 2017
  • Division I women's golf championship regional in Greenville, May 8-10.
  • Division III men's and women's tennis championships in Cary, May 22-27.
  • Division I women's lacrosse championship in Cary, May 26 and 28.
  • Division II baseball championship in Cary, May 27-June 3.
That is a lot of money that will be lost - It will be interesting to see if this puts enough political pressure on the lawmakers to want to change the law.
