Derailed by the pandemic in 2020, the Dan Gable Donnybrook will mark its inaugural year in 2021. The 32(+) team individual format will include some of the best high school teams from Iowa and the midwest with both boys and girls divisions. Xtream Arena, though just opened in September 2020, has already hosted USA Wrestling Senior Nationals, the Iowa High School Girls State Wrestling Tournament, the NWCA D3 National Wrestling Tournament, USA Wrestling Girls Freestyle Nationals, and USA Wrestling's High School Showcase. It's no wonder Iowa City/Coralville has been dubbed "Wrestling Town USA."
"This tournament has my name on it. So you better come to compete. Anyone who wins this tournament has accomplished something special." - Dan Gable
