U.S. Olympic Trial Wave II Tickets Up For Pre-Sale Today

Fans who originally bought tickets to the U.S. Olympic Trials have a chance to buy tickets to the Wave II Olympic Trial meet starting today.

Last week, USA Swimming announced that all pre-sold tickets for the Olympic Trials would be refunded and resold. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the Olympic Trials meet has been split into two separate events, Wave I and Wave II. Pandemic restrictions will lower the spectator seating capacity, and USA Swimming announced that tickets for the Wave II meet will be sold in groups of 2, 4, or 6, with each pod socially distanced from other pods.

Tickets for the Wave I meet will only be sold as daily individual passes.

Today (Friday, April 16), all-session tickets are available for pre-sale for the Wave II meet to those who had originally purchased tickets to the event. An email was sent to ticket-holders with a purchase link here.

Here’s a look at the new ticket resale timeline:

OLYMPIC TRIALS TICKET RESALE TIMELINE

  • Friday, April 16 – All-Session tickets pre-sale opens for Wave II
  • Wednesday, April 21 – All-Session tickets for Wave II released to public
  • Friday, April 23 – Daily tickets pre-sale opens for Wave II
  • Monday, April 26 – Daily tickets for Wave I and II released to public

You can read more about the Ticketmaster refund process here.

The Wave I meet is set for June 4-7, with the Wave II meet happening from June 13-20.

Everyone got a different passcode, I think. Mine was not the same as the one below.

I am quite sure I received no email with a passcode. Please tell me I’m wrong, and give me a hint. Did it come from USA Swim, SwimSwam or USA Swim? Please help.

It came from Ticketmaster and was sent to the email on file with them from last years order.

USA Swimming is telling me that because we purchased a four day package we don’t get a code! Does anyone read this anywhere in the information??

I purchased the full week previously and did not get a passcode, I called the CHI Center and they put me through to someone who was able to look it up. Each passcode is unique to each Ticketmaster purchaser. You’ll need to confirm your identity with specific info.

Thanks. Of course it’s 2 hours late but we’ll try to call now.

Thank you! I called CHI and they found my code. You saved a certain 16 year old from heartbreak!

CHI Center will give you your passcodes if you call. Got it but no seats really available now 3 hours later. Sounds like many people didn’t get the email with passcodes for their all-session tickets so there is a real problem with their system. Good luck all. We are not very pleased with how this has all been organized this time around. Still working on securing tickets.

I completely agree Joy – this is a complete disaster. Incredibly poorly handled. This was a present to my son who has been looking forward to this for 2 years now. Omaha CHI can’t explain why they failed to send out the codes. They even try to claim they did send them – but turns out we know all know that is false. I didn’t even know whom to call – tried Ticketmaster first which of course wasn’t useful – finally saw this thread and called CHI center directly and got my code but too late to get any decent tickets (top deck at the ends is open – sadly my son knows where our first tickets were). Complete failure… Read more »

If you still have them I would happily take them. I actually bought tickets from someone else after my daughter made her cuts late so sadly didn’t have a code. Let me know if you still have them! I really need them for 14,15 and 19…

Everyone that I know that has not gotten the code all purchased 1st half of the week tickets. 13 tickets in 4 parties.

I purchased full week; Joy did as well above – looks like many people who purchased full session did not get passcodes. CHI Omaha had no answer as to why.

Shout out to USA Swimming for offering virtually no sets of 2 seats in the entire lower level. Was 85th in the queue and still got shut out. Nice move to force ppl to buy at least four.

This is frustrating for sure. We have a National Team member swimmer and had our tickets $ refunded but didn’t get an email with a passcode for presale today for Wave II. Got on at 8am this morning and couldn’t get our tickets cause NO passcode was provided. Didn’t know we needed a passcode? Now what. This not ok.

Call the CHI Center directly. Someone there was able to recover my specific passcode.

I was in the waiting room 15 mins early and still just got upper level tickets for 4. Happy to have gotten them but Ticketmaster really does make it hard and not provide an adequate ‘best available’ while also letting you manually click on seats to only tell you every time that someone else got them despite them showing available for hours.

I encountered this as well. They would not allow sets of four to be broken up. I got the same ‘Sorry, someone beat you to it’ only to continually see the seats available. Soooooo frustrating. I originally had great lower level seats until this reconfiguration now I ended up paying more and getting worse seats.

I had the same problem finding just two tickets. The majority were four. Finally scored a pair at the start line in second level. I was 400 in the queue
