On Monday, the NCAA announced it is moving seven championship events from North Carolina due to the state's passage of House Bill 2, which keeps cities and counties from passing protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity and requires people to use public bathrooms that match their gender assigned at birth.
In a statement, NCAA President Mark Emmert said championship events must provide an "inclusive atmosphere for all college athletes, coaches, administrators, and fans." The relocated events include Division I women's soccer, Division II baseball, Division I women's lacrosse, and Division III men's and women's tennis championship games. The NCAA is expected to announce the new venues soon. In July, the NBA moved the All-Star game from Charlotte because of the controversial law.
