Dickies Arena, a 14,000-seat multipurpose venue on the Will Rogers Memorial Center campus, will host gymnasts and fans next summer.

In 2020, the U.S. Gymnastics Championships will make its first appearance in Fort Worth, when the national championships heads to Dickies Arena June 4-7. It will be just the fourth time the event has been held in Texas.

The U.S. Championships determines the men’s and women’s U.S. champions and U.S. National Teams for the junior and senior elite levels. In 2020, performances at the U.S. Championships will play a major role in determining which athletes advance to the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials.

“The 2020 U.S. Championships is literally the last stop before the Olympic Trials, and the four-day competition will play a pivotal part in selecting the gymnasts who will advance to the trials,” said Stefanie Korepin, chief programs officer for USA Gymnastics. “This is an incredible opportunity for gymnastics and sports fans in Texas to see, in person, the country’s and some of the world’s, best gymnasts. The Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area and the state of Texas have great gymnastics communities and have produced a number of World and Olympic medalists, including Carly Patterson, who won the 2003 World and 2004 Olympic all-around titles. We hope everyone will come watch our athletes compete, including those who may be on their way to Tokyo.”

The Fort Worth Sports Commission and Dickies Arena are local partners for the 2020 U.S. Championships.

“Being selected as the host city for the 2020 U.S. Gymnastics Championships is a huge win for Fort Worth as the nation gears up for the Summer Olympics,” said Jason Sands, director of the Fort Worth Sports Commission. “Our community is excited to showcase the city and Dickies Arena’s state-of-the-art facility to the fans, athletes and coaches of this prestigious sport.”

“Fort Worth has continued to show its ability to host major national sporting events, and we are thrilled to assist in bringing the U.S. Gymnastics Championships to this city in 2020,” said Matt Homan, president and general manager of Dickies Arena.

Tickets for the four-day championships are expected to go on sale in the near future. Visit the USA Gymnastics website for more information.
