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.
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.
