In accordance with the recommendations of medical experts and scientists, the singles and doubles tournaments will have a small number of ACL Pros in comparison to a normal National event, all players are being monitored and will be screened for COVID-19, players will maintain proper social distancing, and they will wear protective masks. The ACL has been in close communication with the city, county and State of South Carolina government officials to ensure that all protocols are being adhered to. Accordingly, all ACL Pros participating in the event must drive to the event.
“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, SC to the South Carolina State Officials to our broadcast partner in ESPN and production team. The ACL and our Pros give special thanks to our Title Sponsor, Johnsonville, and their front line workers that are working hard in a high risk environment to keep us fed.”
