AP - Sports

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- The American Cup is set to be the first gymnastics event in the $1.2 billion home of the Dallas Cowboys next year.

The event on March 7, 2015, will be slightly more than a year before the Summer Olympics in Brazil. It will be the first American Cup in Texas since a three-year run in Fort Worth from 1996 to 1998.

The Cowboys' 80,000-seat stadium with a retractable roof isn't far from the home of 2008 Olympic all-around gold medalist Nastia Liukin.

The top Junior Olympic hopefuls will compete the day before the American Cup in an event named after Liukin.

This year's American Cup is Saturday in Greensboro, N.C.
