With lower bowl tickets already sold out for 2020 Olympic Trials in Omaha, Nebraska, organizers announced the release of four-day ticket packages for the June 21-28, 2020, event Friday.
“Sales of all session ticket packages have exceeded expectations and we are on a pace to sell out all eight days of the Olympic Swim Trials next June,” Josh Todd, president of the Omaha Sports Commission, said. “Fans are clearly excited to see America’s top swimmers, such as Katie Ledecky, Caeleb Dressel, Nathan Adrian and Simone Manuel in their final competition on home soil and people wanting good seats should purchase their tickets soon.”
While four-day packages were originally expected to go on sale in November, the ones now on sale offer ticket bundles for either the first four days or last four days of the meet. Prices range from $220 to $275 for access to prelims and finals sessions for either June 21-24, or 25-28.
There are approximately 2,000 tickets remaining for the each of the four-day packages; only 30 all-session packages remain (starting at $330). Single-session tickets would go on sale in February, if any remain. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster.
A “large percentage” of sales so far have come from fans living outside the Omaha metropolitan area, according to USA Swimming. The CHI Health Arena (formerly CenturyLink Center) seats about 18,320 for a basketball game, though that capacity is reduced slightly for Trials because the pool deck is built over the first few rows of seating.
