Duel in the Pool Day 2 Tickets Sell Out Almost Instantly; Very Few Left for Day 1

Tickets for perhaps the most anticipated Duel in the Pool in history have sold out almost instantly after being released on Friday through Ticketmaster.

After announcing that they would go on sale at 10AM on Friday, October 25th, by Saturday, October 26th, British Swimming posted that the meet’s second day had already sold out.

That second day is Saturday, October 21st. though there are some seats still available for Friday, they are at the far end of the natatorium, roughly 15 meters down from the turn end of the pool, and several rows up. They’re not terrible seats, but they are the worst seats in the pool.

Tickets started at £40 ($65) per seat per session to see the likes of Ryan Lochte, Katie Ledecky, Jimmy Feigen, Tyler Clary, Florent Manaudou, Mireia Belmonte, Camille Muffat, Lotte Friis, Ranomi Kromowidjojo, and 12 British swimmers.

See the full rosters for the meet here.

The 2014 Commonwealth Pool in Glasgow, Scotland  has been refurbished for the 2014 edition of the Commonwealth Games. The pool seats 5000 spectators, including 3,000 temporary seats for the Commonwealth Games. For reference to our American readers, that’s slightly bigger than Indy, though its capacity in normal time will only be 2,000 spectators.

Did Kathleen baker get added to the US roster?


according to her twitter she did


That seems to be incorrect. The Glasgow pool was only built in 1997, but still refurbished recently. Think you have got mixed up with the old Commonwealth pool in Edinburgh that will host the Diving for the Commonwealth games in 2014.
