ASI Gymnastics is so excited to share with you all that USA Gymnastics has designated AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX as the site for next year’s AT&T American Cup! That’s right, the most important international gymnastics competition held on US soil will be in our own backyard for the first time since the late 90s! The 2015 American Cup, which will be held on March 7, 2015, is a very important stop on the road to Rio 2016. Every woman in US history to win the Olympic All-Around gold medal was a past American Cup Champion, so this event offers North Texans an unprecedented opportunity to see some of gymnastics’ brightest stars up close!
From USA Gymnastics:
“AT&T Stadium will be a truly unique stage to showcase gymnastics as the Road to Rio heats up in 2015,” said Steve Penny, president of USA Gymnastics. “Hosting the event at AT&T Stadium is important to us for several reasons: AT&T, one of our premier corporate partners, is based here and its name is on the stadium and the event itself; this will be the first time this event has ever been held in a football stadium; and Texas has one of the largest gymnastics communities in the country. The AT&T American Cup showcases the best in gymnastics, and this facility is definitely world class.”
From AT&T Stadium:
“We are excited to have the opportunity to showcase some of the finest gymnasts in the world the year before they head to the 2016 Olympics in Rio,” said Charlotte Anderson, executive vice president and chief brand officer of the Dallas Cowboys. “We are always looking for new ways to bring the greatest sporting events and athletes to AT&T Stadium, and the success of U.S. gymnasts in recent years on the global stage makes our venue the perfect place to host an event of this kind.”
