The NCAA just took a stand against North Carolina's controversial bathroom law and pulled seven major championship games out of the Tar Heel state.
The NCAA announced its decision Monday evening, citing the "actions taken by the state concerning civil rights protections."
The law (officially designated "House Bill 2") is the only statewide law in the country that makes it unlawful to use a restroom that is different from one's biological sex. It also overrules any local laws that treat sexual orientation as a protected class to prevent discrimination against LGBT individuals.
The NCAA board of governors said the dynamic in North Carolina "is different from that of other states" because it allows for government officials to legally refuse services to the LGBT community. It also noted that five states plus numerous cities prohibit travel to North Carolina for public employees and representatives of public institutions, which could include student-athletes and campus athletics staff.
NCAA President Mark Emmert said the NCAA will determine the new locations for these championships soon.
The seven championships that will be relocated from North Carolina for the 2016-2017 academic year include:
University of North Carolina President Margaret Spellings was not pleased with the NCAA's decision and lamented how it might affect North Carolina's athletics community.
"We are surprised and disappointed by the NCAA's decision and regret the impact it will have on North Carolina's student-athletes, coaches, athletic staffs, fans, and the North Carolina communities previously chosen to host these championship events," Spellings said. "We welcome a speedy resolution of these issues by the court."
By relocating its championship games away from North Carolina, the NCAA becomes the latest organization to take a stance against the state's controversial law since it passed it March.
