U.S. Figure Skating announced the selection of The Orleans Arena in Las Vegas as the host for 2021 Skate America, Oct. 22-24, 2021. Skate America® will mark the first of six stops on the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series 2021.
Skate America® was staged in Las Vegas for the first time in 2019. The competition was held at The Orleans Arena in 2020 without spectators in a bubble environment due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All-session ticket packages will go on sale Wednesday, May 26. More information will be available at 2021SkateAmerica.com.
"The Orleans Arena was such a great partner for this competition in 2020, so we are excited to bring Skate America back to Las Vegas in 2021," U.S. Figure Skating President Anne Cammett said. "We’re looking forward to having fans in attendance as athletes from the United States and abroad continue on their journey towards the Olympic Winter Games.”
The Orleans Hotel and Casino, which is adjacent to the arena, will offer a special fan rate during the competition. More information regarding lodging will be available at 2021SkateAmerica.com on May 26.
“We are excited to continue our amazing relationship with U.S. Figure Skating, which has included some great closed events over the last year,” said Orleans Arena Executive Director Rex Berman. “The one thing that has been missing is the ‘oohs and aahs’ as skaters take the ice. We are ecstatic to welcome the cheering fans back for the 2021 edition of Skate America.”
The complete list of athletes selected to compete at 2021 Skate America and all other ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating competitions will be announced in June.
