Wake Forest students cheer on the Demon Deacons men's basketball team.

And the Crowd Goes Wild!

Wake Forest University proudly competes in the NCAA Division I Atlantic Coast Conference. As a founding member of the ACC, Wake Forest Demon Deacon teams have won nine national championships in five sports, including men’s tennis and men’s soccer. Our football and basketball teams practice and perform in the state-of-the-art Sutton Center, LJVM Coliseum, and Allegacy Federal Credit Union Stadium. The football, baseball, and men’s and women’s basketball teams play about a mile away on Deacon Boulevard. Athletic tickets are free for students and distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Across Wake Forest Road is Kentner Stadium, home of our three-time NCAA field hockey champions and our track teams. Kentner is one of two major sports venues on this campus. The other is Spry Stadium, which an ncaa.com fan survey recently called one of the nation’s best spots to watch college soccer.

And many students join the Screamin’ Demons to cheer on their teams. It’s the largest student organization on campus and gives Wake Forest students special access to sporting events. They have helped the Division I Demon Deacons to national prominence in the nation’s toughest conference: the ACC.

Finally, 90 percent of Wake Forest undergraduates participate in at least one intramural team or individual sport.
