NCAA Gymnastics Championships Tumbling into Fort Worth

13 Apr, 2021


Tickets to the 2021 NCAA National Collegiate Women’s Gymnastics Championship are on sale now. Fort Worth Sports Commission, Knight Eady and Texas Woman’s University are bringing the 2021 NCAA National Collegiate Women’s Gymnastics Championship back to Fort Worth at Dickies Arena April 16-17, 2021.

This year’s event will be the fourth year the event has been hosted in Fort Worth. Fort Worth was recently awarded to host the NCAA National Collegiate Women’s Gymnastics Championship through 2026. This event is the first NCAA National Championship that was hosted in the city of Fort Worth. Last year’s event was canceled due to COVID-19. A limited number of spectators may attend the two-day event featuring the semifinals and championship. For this year’s event, only single-session tickets will be available for purchase. In 2019, the event saw a record number of tickets sold for the gymnastics championship event. Fort Worth Sports Commission, Knight Eady and Texas Woman’s University are excited to host this year’s event at the Dickies Arena. The event will be hosted at Dickies Arena for the next five years.

Due to COVID-19, the event will operate at 25 percent capacity with limited tickets available for purchase. The NCAA and parties involved in planning the event have ensured that the number one priority for the event is the safety of the student-athletes, coaches and fans.

The weekend schedule includes two semifinals on Friday, April 16 at 12:00 p.m. CST and 5:00 p.m. CST. On Saturday, April 17 the top four teams in the country will compete for the title of National Champion. The championship will begin at 2:30 p.m. CST and will be aired on ABC.

“We are excited to partner with Knight Eady and Texas Woman’s University to host the return of the NCAA 2021 National Collegiate Women’s Gymnastics Championships to Fort Worth,” said Jason Sands, director of the Fort Worth Sports Commission. “We will be working closely with the NCAA staff, Dickies Arena and our hospitality partners to ensure athletes, coaches and fans have a safe and enjoyable experience in our city,” said Sands.

“We are excited to welcome the NCAA National Collegiate Women’s Gymnastics Championships back to Fort Worth and into Dickies Arena,” said Trail Drive Management Corp.’s Matt Homan, president and general manager of Dickies Arena. “We look forward to providing an incredible experience for our guests and for the NCAA and their student athletes when they come to compete this Spring.”

Teams will punch their ticket to the championship after competing at Regional meets, April 1-3 at one of four Regional hosts: the University of Georgia, University of Alabama, Utah and West Virginia University. Texas Woman’s University is the host institution for the championship.

Tickets are on sale now and will continue to be on sale until the event. Tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com.
