American Cup (gymnastics)
The American Cup, formerly known as the AT&T American Cup through a sponsorship arrangement that ended in 2018, is an elite senior level international gymnastics competition that has been held in the United States since 1976. It is usually held in March or February of each year. In 2011, it became part of the International Federation of Gymnastics (FIG) Artistic Gymnastics World Cup series. With the exception of 2005 (when the competition was also part of the FIG World Cup series), it has been exclusively an all-around competition. Past champions include Olympic all-around champions Nadia Comăneci, Mary Lou Retton, Vitaly Scherbo, Paul Hamm, Carly Patterson, Nastia Liukin, Gabby Douglas, and Simone Biles.

Since 1978, the American Cup has been sponsored by various companies, and the event is typically named for the sponsoring company. AT&T cancelled its sponsorship of the competition prior to the 2018 event due to the ongoing sex abuse scandal at USA Gymnastics.
