U.S. Figure Skating announced that 2016 Skate America will be held in Hoffman Estates, Illinois -- the same place that hosted the event two years ago.

Competition will take place at the Sears Centre Arena, Oct. 21-23, 2016.

"We are excited to return to the Chicago area for this prestigious international competition," U.S. Figure Skating President Sam Auxier said. "The support of the skating community and the fans in 2014 made our decision to return an easy one."

The event is the first of six in the 2016 Grand Prix Series. The athlete lineup and schedule for 2016 Skate America will be announced June 30.

Icenetwork will provide live coverage of 2016 Skate America as well as the entire Grand Prix Series to Season Pass subscribers. The full list of subscription events will be announced this summer.
