2020 U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials Tickets Go on Sale July 1st

Update: Tickets will go on sale at 11:00 AM Eastern Time.

All-session passes for the 2020 U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials will go on sale on July 1, 2019. This means that fans will actually be able to buy tickets for the 2020 Olympic Tickets (which go on sale internationally on June 14th) before tickets to the Olympic Trials. The meet will be held from Sunday, June 21st through Sunday, June 28th.

Key Dates:

  • July 1, 2019 – All-Session tickets open for general public via Ticketmaster
  • November 15, 2019 – Launch of 4-day ticket package (based on availability; date subject to change)
  • February 15, 2020 – Launch of Daily and Single-Session tickets (based on availability; date subject to change)

This is similar timing to the 2016 Trials, where they went on sale on June 29th of the prior year.

For the first time ever, all 8 days of the U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials were sold out in 2016.

Hotel rooms are available to book for the public 12 months in advance of the dates for which they are to be booked.

Ticket prices for the 2020 Trials have increased slightly: an 2016 all-session pass cost $550, $450, or $350 for the 3 primary tiers. The $25 increase is almost exactly in-line with U.S. inflation over the same time period.

There will be a slight premium on tickets for either 4-day (half-meet) packages or single-day packages.

The newly-renamed CHI Health Center in Omaha seats over 17,000 for basketball games, with its swimming capacity reduced to just-over 14,000 for the Olympic Trials.

Do swimmers who qualify for and swim one event get to go back to watch on other days and for finals or do they need to buy tickets for the other days?

Do qualifiers have any sort of special access to tickets for their friends and family? Especially for their event session?

In 2016 I tried to purchase tickets in Victory Row the minute the tickets went on sale. This was not possible through Ticketmaster. Are those tickets reserved for VIPs or will they be available July 1st?

How do we find out the schedule of events so that we know which days to purchase tickets for?
