U.S. Figure Skating announced the selection of Nashville as the host of the 2022 TOYOTA U.S. Figure Skating Championships. The 2022 U.S. Championships, which will take place Jan. 3-9, will serve as the final qualifying event prior to selecting and announcing the U.S. Olympic Figure Skating Team that will represent Team USA at the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022. The U.S. Championships were last held in Nashville in 1997.
The annual event, held since 1914, is the nation’s most prestigious figure skating event, with past champions including Michelle Kwan, Kristi Yamaguchi, Brian Boitano and Scott Hamilton. Champions will be crowned in ladies, men’s, pairs and ice dance at the championship and junior levels.
In 2022, as all eyes shift to the Olympic Winter Games in Beijing, Nashville and Bridgestone Arena will serve as the final qualifying event prior to the nomination of the U.S. Olympic Figure Skating Team.
The U.S. Championships return to Nashville for just the second time, with the event first taking place at the newly opened Bridgestone Arena in in 1997. Nashville is home to Olympic champion Scott Hamilton, who founded the Scott Hamilton Skating Academy, which highlights the strength and growth of the Nashville skating community.
“From my very first days working with the Nashville Predators through the Scott Hamilton Skating Academy, I knew we were going to build something unique and special,” Olympic champion and Nashville resident Scott Hamilton said. “I also knew there were no limits to the ways we could benefit the skating community at large. I always knew we would someday host the U.S. Figure Skating Championships and I’m so excited that it’s happening in 2022 and that we’ll get to send off the U.S. Olympic Figure Skating Team to Beijing. I couldn’t be more excited for the city of Nashville, and also for the skating community as together we will all witness a U.S. Championships like no other!”
The championships will be hosted locally with the support of the Nashville Sports Council, Bridgestone Arena and local skating clubs.
The event will be broadcast live on NBC Universal, and streamed live, commercial-free and on demand with the Figure Skating Pass on NBC Sports Gold. Ticket information will be available at a later date.
