Past U.S. Figure Skating Championships have brought in more than $15 million in estimated economic impact, the Columbus Sports Commission said, while NBC has devoted more than 40 hours of live coverage across its networks.
“U.S. Figure Skating is thrilled to host this prestigious event for the first time in Columbus,” U.S. Figure Skating Chief Executive Officer Tracy Marek said in a statement announcing the event. “Nationwide Arena offers the unique benefit of housing two rinks under one roof for a seamless transition from practice to competition for our competing athletes. Plus, its central location in downtown Columbus creates an accessible, fan-friendly and energetic atmosphere that will make an exciting destination for competitors, coaches, their families and fans alike.”
Practice sessions for the sessions will be held in the OhioHealth Ice Haus.
Past cities to host the U.S. Figure Skating Championships include Boston, Kansas City, Detroit, Nashville and San Jose, California, which is currently hosting the event.
Nationwide Arena recently hosted the first and second rounds of the 2023 NCAA men's basketball tournament, along with previously hosting events like the 2021 Division 1 Women's Volleyball Championship and the 2018 Division 1 Women's Final Four.
Columbus is also scheduled to host the 2027 Division I Women's Final Four.
