The 2016 AT&T American Cup will be held at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The one-day competition featuring the world’s best gymnasts will take place on March 5, 2016. Additionally, the Nastia Liukin Cup, which showcases the country’s top Junior Olympic female gymnasts, will be staged in conjunction with the AT&T American Cup and will be held at the same venue on March 4, 2016.
“Prudential Center was one of our most successful stops for the 2012 Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions, and we are confident it will be a great location for the AT&T American Cup,” said Steve Penny, president of USA Gymnastics. “The New Jersey-New York metropolitan area has a strong gymnastics community, and we look forward to again kicking off the Olympic year in the area.”
Invitations to compete in the 2016 AT&T American Cup will be based on performances at the 2015 World Gymnastics Championships in Glasgow, Scotland.
