NCAA Division I Championship Tickets For Both Men & Women Sold Out

Tickets for both the Men’s and Women’s NCAA Division I Swimming & Diving Championships are sold out.

Tickets for the women’s championships went on sale to the public on Jan. 24, while men’s tickets became available earlier on Tuesday (Jan. 31) and sold out in less than five minutes.

The women’s D1 championships will be held at the University of Tennessee’s Allan Jones Aquatic Center in Knoxville, Tenn., on March 15-18, with seating capacity available for 1,284 spectators. The men’s D1 competition will be hosted by the University of Minnesota at the Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center in Minneapolis, where there’s seating available for 1,350 spectators.

Both D1 meets are being held at smaller facilities than the Division II and Division III championships, which will be at the IU Natatorium in Indianapolis and the Greensboro Aquatic Center in North Carolina, respectively.


  • D1 Women – Knoxville, Tennessee – University of Tennessee, Knoxville – Allan Jones Aquatic Center (seating for 1,284 spectators), March 15-18, 2023
  • D1 Men – Minneapolis, Minnesota – University of Minnesota, Twin Cities – Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center (seating for 1,350 spectators), March 22-25, 2023
  • D2 Men/Women Combined – Indianapolis, Indiana – IU Natatorium, IUPUI Campus (seating for 4,700 spectators), March 8-11, 2023
  • D3 Men/Women Combined – Greensboro, North Carolina – Greensboro Aquatic Center (seating for 1,942 spectators), March 15-18, 2023

Both the men’s and women’s NCAA Championship meets have sold out in recent years in much larger facilities, including the 1,900 seat Georgia Tech Aquatic Center last year.

In certain years, tickets have sold out before even becoming available to the general public due to team requests filling the venue capacity.

You have to stop putting Leon in a picture when his family didn’t manage to buy tickets to see him swim

Anyone know how we could find an updated spectator seating guide?

I wonder how many tickets the championships could sell if the arenas could hold upwards of 10,000. Curious to see if they would sell out.

I was hoping to time for this but apparently the timing system removed the use of timers.

I hope I can watch this on tv!

Based on past events in Federal Way in Indy, I would say no. It would partially depend on where the 10,000 seats are.

I think a well-constructed swimming stadium with 5000 good seats would be pretty close to a sell out right now. If momentum continues to build, I think they could get to 10k. Seems like there’s renewed interest among college coaches to make swimming spectator friendly.

Just went to the NCST at TX dual and they did a great job (Friday) with the long horn out front (Bevo) cheerleaders inside and a good student section. It had good music and a fast pace with 2 very fast teams and the atmosphere was great with the music and light shows etc.
