USA Wrestling, Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics and the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee have collectively decided that the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Wrestling, originally scheduled for April 4-5, 2020, will not be held at the Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, Pennsylvania.
USA Wrestling and Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics worked to reschedule the event in 2021. However, a decision to relocate the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Wrestling was made due to a variety of factors, including current COVID-19 health and safety guidelines and the desire to provide the ability to accommodate all of the participants, staff and fans.
In addition to the announcement of the relocation of this year’s U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Wrestling, USA Wrestling, Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics and the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee announced Penn State and the Bryce Jordan Center will host the 2024 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Wrestling.
USA Wrestling came out with the following information today. Many families who purchased directly from the Bryce Jordan Center are already being reimbursed and putitng themselves in position to buy tickets once the new venue is released.
Please provide reimbursement information so we are able to watch our loved ones compete in the Olympic Trials.
USA Wrestling is currently in negotiations to secure a new location for the competition, targeting the early April 2021 time frame. USA Wrestling expects that it will be able to finalize this arrangement in the near future.
The decision to relocate the event will not impact the competitions which serve as qualifiers for the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Wrestling, as set in the approved USA Wrestling Athlete Selection Procedures for the 2020 Olympic Games in men’s freestyle, women’s freestyle and Greco-Roman.
