New Ticketing Plan Released for 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Swimming in June 2021

New Ticketing Plan Released for 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Swimming in June 2021


We wish to clarify a miscommunication presented in the original U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Swimming ticketing release. The All Session pre-sale event on April 16, 2021, was limited to previous All Session ticket holders only. Previous 4-Day or Daily ticket holders will have access to the Daily ticket pre-sale event on Friday, April 23 at 10 a.m. CT and will receive their unique pre-sale code prior to the on-sale event.

OMAHA, Neb. –
Following the January 2021 announcement that the U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Swimming would be split into two events, with Wave I on June 4-7, 2021 and Wave II on June 13-20, 2021, USA Swimming, the Omaha Sports Commission and the host venue have been working diligently to plan for the rescheduled event at the CHI Health Center in Omaha. 

In an effort to deliver the safest competition possible and to mitigate the potential spread of COVID-19, the venue seating map has been reconfigured, reducing daily session attendance capacity to approximately 50%. Given the June 2020 Trials had already sold tickets in excess of 90% of capacity, there will be a complete refund of tickets and re-sale beginning Friday, April 16. 

Original 2020 ticket purchasers will have two (2) exclusive pre-sale opportunities for both All Session (Wave II only) and Daily tickets, with the Daily tickets providing access to the morning preliminaries and evening finals on a single day. The ticketing timeline is as follows: 

April 16, 2021 at 10 a.m. CT – All Session tickets pre-sale for Wave II 
April 21, 2021 at 10 a.m. CT – All Session tickets for Wave II released to the general public 
April 23, 2021 at 10 a.m. CT – Daily tickets pre-sale for Wave II 
April 26, 2021 at 10 a.m. CT – Daily tickets for Wave I and Wave II released to the general public 

Tickets may be purchased through any Ticketmaster outlet nationwide or online at Tickets also can be purchased at the CHI Health Center Omaha box office. Seats will be sold in physically distanced pods of two (2), four (4), or six (6) seats. Fans may purchase up to six (6) tickets for each session and tickets will be sold on a first-come first-serve basis. 

Hotels reservations for Wave I, from June 4-7, 2021, will open to teams and the general public on April 7 at 10 a.m. CT, by visiting:

The event Organizing Committee (OC) continues to work with USA Swimming National Team physicians, along with the Douglas County Health Department, CHI Health (which is providing medical services for the Trials), the venue and the USOPC in the development of the Trials health and safety plans. Local county health regulations require masks to be worn inside the arena at all times, and event organizers will require this as well, regardless of any changes to local regulations prior to the start of the event. While strongly encouraged, neither a vaccine nor negative COVID-19 test will be required for spectators to enter the arena. The OC will also ensure that anti-COVID measures are enforced and widely available throughout the venue.
