Located in downtown Greensboro and home to 2011 Class-A South Atlantic League champion Greensboro Grasshoppers, NewBridge Bank Park opened its gates to a crowd of 8,540 on April 3, 2005, with a Grasshoppers exhibition game against the Florida Marlins. The state-of-the-art facility features a 30' wide, open-air concourse, 36 concession points of sale, the Go Triad GrandStand outdoor sports bar, a kid-safe play park and numerous amenities.

The stadium's seating capacity currently stands at 7,499, which includes 5,300 chair back seats, 16 luxury suites and two grass berm and picnic areas.

This will mark the third time in four years that NewBridge Bank Park has hosted the ACC Baseball Championship. The 2010 tournament attracted 50,266 fans, while the 2012 edition saw 52,926 in attendance, the fifth-best mark in league history.
