American Athletic Conference Relocates Headquarters to Texas
POSTED: July 1, 2020 -- 12:15 p.m. CT
American Athletic Conference Commissioner Mike Aresco announced The American has officially moved its headquarters to Irving, Texas, effective July 1, 2020. Providence, Rhode Island, has been the home of the Conference since its formation in 2013.
The Conference offices will now be located in an 18,000-square foot space at The Summit at Las Colinas in Irving. The Summit is a 19-story building on 4.1 acres in the Las Colinas neighborhood of Irving and is within 15 minutes of both the Dallas-Fort Worth International and Dallas Love Field airports for convenient access to The American's member institutions, as well as Dickies Arena, the site of the Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championship for 2021 and 2022. Other tenants in The Summit at Las Colinas include the College Football Playoff, JP Morgan Chase and General Motors.
"We are excited to begin serving our membership from our state-of-the-art office in Texas," Aresco said. "The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is a national epicenter for intercollegiate athletics and allows us to be geographically closer to many of our member schools as well as to the site of our men's and women's basketball championships. We look forward to joining our colleagues from SMU, and those from other conferences, the College Football Playoff, the National Football Foundation, the Goodyear Cotton Bowl and Dickies Arena, among other organizations.

"We chose The Summit because it is an attractive and well-managed building in a centralized location with easy access to the nearby airports, and to the desirable residential areas, restaurants and many cultural attractions in the region. We look forward to hosting the visiting membership."
The new office will include a high-tech production studio and a command center. The production studio will be the home of the American Digital Network and will be used to produce features, interviews and halftime segments to be highlighted on ESPN broadcasts produced by the Conference. The command center will allow for real-time monitoring and interaction with officials at conference football games.
Conference staff members will begin working in the new space in July following state and local health guidelines.
