The Atlantic Coast Conference and ESPN have extended their television deal through the 2026-27 season.
The ACC and the network announced the extension Wednesday.
A person familiar with the agreement told The Associated Press that it's worth $3.6 billion over the 15 years. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because financial terms weren't released when the two sides announced the deal Wednesday.
The deal gives ESPN title sponsorship rights beyond football to the ACC's other championships, including men's and women's basketball. Those sponsorship deals are subject to the ACC's approval.
The extension comes eight months after the ACC announced it was adding Pittsburgh and Syracuse. It remains unclear when those schools will leave the Big East and begin play in the ACC.
