The 2016 U.S. Olympic gymnastics teams are coming to Gwinnett County this fall fresh off of this year’s Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, officials at the Infinite Energy Arena announced on Wednesday.

The teams, as well as members of the 2012 U.S. Olympic gymnastics teams and select local gymnasts, are set to visit the Infinite Energy Arena with the 2016 Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions at 7 p.m. on Oct. 29. It will be one of 36 stops on the tour, which will begin in Spokane, Wash., on Sept. 15.

General tickets are expected to go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. on June 23, but participating gymnastics clubs will be selling tickets before then. Ticket prices ranges from $29 to $299. Discount tickets are available for gymnastics clubs and there are club incentives based on the sale of tickets.

Any club, with 10 or more people intested in attending, which would like to get tickets for the show is asked to contact arena officials at [email protected] by May 13.

There will be a limited number of VIP packages available which will get guests admission to a pre-show Olympian Chalk Talk, which will include members of the 2016 Olympic teams, as well as Nastia Liukin, who was the 2008 Olympic all-around champion.

The VIP packages also include seats in the first few rows and a chance to participate in an post-show autograph session.
