Ticket Pre-Sale For Relocated 2024 Canadian Olympic Trials Begins Friday

Swimming Canada has announced the ticket-buying procedure for the 2024 Canadian Olympic Trials, which were moved from Montreal to Toronto earlier this week after a fire broke out in Montreal’s Olympic Tower in March.

Swimming Canada, which hoped to keep the event in the Montreal area due to flights and accommodations having already been booked by many, will offer those who purchased tickets to the Montreal Trials first crack at the tickets in Toronto.

The event maintains the original dates of May 13-19, running from the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre (TPASC).

Due to a different seating layout, the Montreal tickets will be fully refunded through Ticketmaster, but the pre-sale window for those who already bought tickets will be open for five days before they open to the general public. Those who bought Montreal tickets will receive an email with instructions.

Swimming Canada also announced that it will set up an assistance program for participants seeking accommodations in the area and/or those facing additional costs due to the late relocation. Read more here.

Doubling the cost of tickets for the move from Montreal to Toronto is a bit of a low blow.

Doubling the cost of tickets for Toronto vs. Montreal? I understand Swim Canada need some more money to facilitate the move but adding this on to the parents already scrambling to re-organize is a low blow.
