Greensboro has hosted the prestigious event twice already, once in 2011 and the second in 2015. Greensboro is the only site that hosts the championships, practice rink and fan fast all under one roof because of the multiple venues at the coliseum which is pretty unique. In other host cities competitors have to be shuttled around the city between venues. It was a big deal for Greensboro because it was nationally televised on NBC complete with aerial skyline shots. Greensboro's skyline will be a little bigger by then. 2020 will be a good year for the city with the opening of a number of downtown developments. Gate City Blvd has received a makeover since the last time the championships were held in Greensboro. The competitors loved the city both times it was hosted here. This year the event is being held in San Jose and the last two years Kansas City and Saint Paul, Minnesota. Greensboro, Atlanta, Nashville and Orlando are the only southern cities that have hosted the event.
