This year’s championship will be hosted by Delaware State University.

Norfolk State is the two-time defending MEAC champion for both the men and women, having swept the titles in both 2019 and 2021. There was no championship held in 2020 due to effects from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2022-2023 athletic season will serve as the 52nd year of the Mid- Athletic Conference (MEAC) intercollegiate competition.
