2016 U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials Tickets Will Go On Sale June 29th

All-session tickets for the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials will go on sale on June 29th, 2015 at 10 A.M. Central Time, USA Swimming announced this week. Individual-session tickets will go on sale at a later time, but the initial run that will gain fans entrance to all 15 sessions of the Olympic qualification event will range from $330-$550 per seat.

For the third-straight occasion, the meet will be held in Omaha, Nebraska at the 17,000-seat CenturyLink Center (approximately 14,000 seats for swimming), which will be configured with a 50-meter pool built center-stage where the basketball court and hockey rink usually sits.

In 2012, local officials announced an official total attendance of 167,048 seats filled for the duration of the meet, or approximately 11,000 per session. Most finals sessions were at capacity, while prelims had plenty of empty seats in the upper levels.

The meet will run from Sunday, June 26th through Sunday, July 3rd, 2016.

Once again, the first 4 days overlap the college baseball world series – so parking, hotel rooms, etc. will be very hard to come by. Why couldn’t they stagger these two events to avoid conflict?

The college world series has a contract with hosting it during those dates in Omaha. Baseball signed their contract way before swimming decided to Trials in Omaha. Baseball has done nothing wrong, and if anything, the baseball people should be upset that the swimming people are coming into their town the last 4 days of the college world series. I’m not exactly sure why our Trial meet needs to be those exact dates, but I’m sure the higher ups have their reasons.

8 days in Omaha in 2012 watching prelims and finals of swim trials and also catching a bunch of CWS games with my baseball fan friends was unequivocally the best sport spectating experience of my life. My baseball friends became swim fans after joining me for OTs. The CWS is a bucket-list American sporting event.

The baseball and swim fans got on great, the bars were hopping, and the merch was best in class. I love that these events overlap. Count me in–where will the SwimSwam after party HQ be?!
