Tickets purchased for the original 2020 U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials at the CHI Health Center in Omaha, Nebraska will be dealt with in one of two ways after Friday’s announcement of the rescheduled dates.
The event will now be held in Omaha, Nebraska from June 13th-20th, 2021. That’s a week earlier in the Olympic cycle than the original dates of June 21st-28th, 2020. Read more on the new schedule here.
One of the most frequent questions that was sent our way is what would happen with tickets that were originally purchased for the 2020 event.
2 Options for 2020 Olympic Trials Tickets:
- re-issuance of new tickets in the same seats for the same session(s)
- ticket refunds within six months of the rescheduling announcement via the original point of purchase
To request a refund, log in to your ticket master account, navigate to “my upcoming events,” click the meet, and scroll down to “Request a Refund.”
The few tickets for the original 2020 dates that were available remain up for grabs, while any returned/refunded tickets will be available immediately again after processing. This means that anybody still looking for tickets, or maybe hoping to upgrade their seats, will have to check the Ticketmaster site frequently and hope to catch any released seats before anybody else does.
The CHI Health Center, formerly the CenturyLink Center and Qwest Center, is an 18,000+ seat multi-purpose arena in downtown Omaha, Nebraska. While its primary tenant is the Creighton University men’s basketball team, it hosts many concerts, sporting events, conventions, and the famous annual shareholders’ meeting of Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway every year.
With the pool deck being built over the first few rows of sweets, the capacity for the Olympic Swimming Trials is reduced to just over 17,000 spectators.
