ACL Cornhole Mania 2020 Hits ESPN’s Airwaves on May 9

May’s American Cornhole League (ACL) Pro Invitational Qualifier, ACL Cornhole Mania 2020, will be televised live from Rock Hill, SC this Saturday, May 9. The event will be held at the Rock Hill Sports & Event Center.

The doubles competition at ACL Cornhole Mania 2020 is slated for 12 to 2 p.m. ET on ESPN, with singles in primetime on ESPN2 from 6 – 8 p.m.

“We’re excited for the opportunity to televise live sports on our networks for fans to enjoy,” said ESPN executive vice president of programming Burke Magnus. “These past two months, we’ve seen the importance of shared experiences in uniting us all. We look forward to continuing that with the upcoming ACL pro qualifier.”

In recent weeks, the ACL pivoted to virtual and digital competition, with more than 60,000 ACL registered players having the option to compete via ACL Virtual and Facebook Live to keep their skills sharp while staying at home.

“The COVID-19 crisis obviously continues to disrupt everyone’s normal lives,” said Stacey Moore, Commissioner and Founder of the American Cornhole League. “We hope that the resumption of competition will help in some small way by entertaining sports fans at home. We are very grateful for everyone involved that has helped to make this possible – from the City of Rock Hill, S.C. to the South Carolina State Officials to our broadcast partner in ESPN and production team.”

ESPN and the ACL signed a multi-year deal in summer 2017, and the league hosts competitions and tournaments across the amateur, collegiate and professional ranks with thousands of players taking part every year.
