Moving things out of North Carolina isn’t a great idea. See NASCAR.

Going forward, I think the football schools need to exert more influence - particularly Clemson and Florida State, but also Virginia Tech to the proper degree.

...that said, I see no reason nor any advantage to moving ACC headquarters.

I think the reason to look at moving the headquarters from Greensboro is to think about where you want the conference to go. Not where it currently is.
I don't necessarily say move the headquarters unless there is a good reason.

It depends where does the ACC see itself going. In my view, the ACC should be moving to increasing its use of technology in the future. That could be more statistics being generated by the sports to use in conjunction with betting.
There was an article in the Wall Street Journal on August 27th. I won't post the article out of respect for the Wall Street Journal as it is available only to subscribers but I will post the title.

ESPN Explores Sports-Betting Deal Worth at Least $3 Billion
Sports-media giant has held talks to license its brand to sportsbooks including Caesars Entertainment and DraftKings

This is for branding only of the ESPN brand for gambling, but it does bring up the fact that there is going to be a lot more data, statistics and technology coming that leagues like the ACC are going to be able to provide for a price to the various gambling platforms like Draft Kings, Bet MGM, Caesars etc. All of this extra money that the ACC will generate will require more technology folks to be hired in the ACC conference. Gambling could be a big part of the future as it grows around the world. This could grow if the Alliance with the Pac-12 and Big Ten create a basketball streaming super league in the future to market to the world. The ACC has to think about being in a location that will enable it to get a lot of technology staff. Perhaps it is not easy to get technology people to move to Greensboro, i don't know but i suspect it is not that easy. The ACC also has to think about being in a location that will get more national media (and perhaps international media if the basketball super league takes off and is sold to the world via internet streaming). New York and Washington would fit the bill for national or international media but I am not sure about the technology staff as it might get expensive in either New York and Washington. There may be other things that would have to be considered such as air connections to other parts of the country. Perhaps they might want to look at more social media opportunities with large corporations so that might be part of the decision. There are a lot of things to consider which is why they are doing a study.
