Tickets are on sale for the first stop of the 2019 TYR Pro Swim Series in Knoxville, Tennessee from January 9th-12th. While ticket prices vary from meet to meet, the series-opening stop in Knoxville has prices comparable to those in last year’s opener in Austin.
A big change is that premium tickets are on sale, following a national trend at USA Swimming-run meets of segmenting seats into different price tiers. Even then, however, the adult all-sessions premium ticket price is just $1 more than the adult all-sessions general admission price in Austin last year.
2019 TYR Pro Swim Series – Knoxville Ticket Prices:
- All Sessions Premium – Adult: $85
- All Sessions Premium – Child: $60
- All Sessions General Admission – Adult – $60
- All Sessions General Admission – Child – $45
- All Sessions General Admission – Tennessee Student – $30
- Prelims/Wednesday Timed Finals – Adult – $10
- Prelims/Wednesday Timed Finals – Child – $5
- Finals – Adult – $15
- Finals – Child – $10
All 5 meets have new hosts this year after USA Swimming opened up a new bidding process, though in general the venues are smaller than last year with several of the country’s biggest pools, including pools at Georgia Tech, Texas, and at the IU Natatorium in Indianapolis, not earning the right to host this year. Tennessee has the biggest permanent grandstand among the 2019 hosts with room for 1,800 off-deck. Last year’s opener, Austin, seats 2,100.
