USA Wrestling has finalized the schedule and posted an official event website for the Senior Nationals, which will be hosted at the new Xtream Arena & GreenState Family Fieldhouse in Coralville, Iowa, October 9-11.

The schedule features three days of competition, which will showcase the nation’s top international-style wrestlers, competing in the three Olympic disciplines: men’s freestyle, women’s freestyle and Greco-Roman.

Extensive information on the Senior Nationals has been posted on an official event website at:
https://usawrestlingevents.com/event/2000215702/

The schedule for the Senior Nationals will include the six Olympic weight classes in each discipline. There will be a one-match finals, as is traditional at the Senior Nationals. Athletes will be able to register starting August 20.

However, if United World Wrestling confirms that the proposed 2020 Senior World Championships meets the conditions to be held and USA Wrestling decides to attend, the event format could change. The Sport Committee in each of the disciplines will meet to consider using this event as a 2020 World Team Trials, which could change the number of weight classes and the competition format.

In an effort to answer a variety of questions about the Senior Nationals for athletes, coaches, team leaders and fans, USA Wrestling has developed a Q&A document, which can be accessed at:
https://www.teamusa.org/USA-Wrestling/Features/2020/July/27/Question-and-answer-about-Senior-Nationals

Fans will be able to order tickets starting at 12:00 noon on Monday, August 3 by visiting www.xtreamarena.com. Ticket prices for the Senior Nationals will be:
• All Session Adult $45
• All Session Youth $25
• Single Day Adult $35
