Cornhole Mania 2020 will be broadcast on ESPN and ESPN2 on Saturday, May 9, declared by the American Cornhole League (ACL).

The event will be held in Rock Hill, S.C. at the Rock Hill sports and events center. Furthermore, the doubles competition is scheduled for 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. ET on ESPN, with singles in primetime on ESPN2 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

“We’re excited for the opportunity to televise live sports on our networks for fans to enjoy,” said Burke Magnus, ESPN’s executive VP of programming. “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.”

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the ACL rotated to virtual and digital competition in recent weeks, permitting more than 60,000 ACL registered players to contend through ACL Virtual and Facebook while staying at home.

Commissioner and founder of The American Cornhole League Stacey Moore said he trusts the virtual competition will carry a little diversion to fans during this troublesome time.

“We hope that the resumption of the competition will help in some small way be entertaining sports fans at home. We are very grateful for everyone involved that has helped 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.”

In 2017, ESPN and the ACL signed a multi-year deal, and the league hosts tournaments and competitions over the beginner, collegiate, and professional ranks with a great many players partaking every year.
