FORT WORTH – Fort Worth will be part of the run-up to the Paris Olympic Games when the city welcomes America’s top gymnasts as host of the 2024 Xfinity U.S. Gymnastics Championships.
Set for May 30-June 2, 2024 at Dickies Arena, the Xfinity U.S. Gymnastics Championships will determine national champions in men’s and women’s artistic gymnastics and will set the National Team lineups that will compete for Olympic berths at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Gymnastics, to be held June 27-30 in Minneapolis.
The 2024 Xfinity U.S. Gymnastics Championships mark the second straight Olympic year Fort Worth has hosted the event, having most recently hosted the 2021 national championships in the lead up to the Tokyo Olympic Games. As in 2021, Fort Worth will again host America’s best artistic gymnasts including returning Olympians, defending champions, and world champions.
“With the incredible success of the 2021 championships, we are excited to return to Fort Worth,” USA Gymnastics chief programs officer Stefanie Korepin said. “The Xfinity U.S. Gymnastics Championships will offer fans an early look at the athletes who ultimately will compete to make the 2024 Olympic team.”
More than 150 athletes and tens of thousands of fans are expected for the 2024 Xfinity U.S. Gymnastics Championships.
“We truly value our partnership with USA Gymnastics and we couldn’t be more excited to host this prestigious championship and welcome the best gymnasts and fans in the country to experience all Fort Worth has to offer,” said Jason Sands, executive director of the Fort Worth Sports Commission.
Tickets for the 2024 Xfinity U.S. Gymnastics Championships will go on sale later this year.
