Location

USA Swimming is organizing, by far, one of the biggest Olympic Team Trials that will take place at Lucas Oil Stadium, located in Indianapolis, Indiana. The home stadium of the Indianapolis Colts hosted many athletic events. From the Super Bowl to the NCAA Championships in the books, this multipurpose arena is now set to host its first pool competition & an Olympic qualifying meet.

Renovated in 2008, Lucas Oil Stadium will be refitted to welcome 30,000 swimming fans, allowing USA Swimming to offer various seating & ticket options for the swimming fans. The spacious football field will be used to construct three temporary pools: 1 competition pool and 2 warm-up/warm-down pools behind the covers for competitors.

Tickets

USA Swimming offers two ticket options:
  • Single day tickets

    A single-day ticket will allow you to attend swimming trials for one day: prelims & finals sessions. The pricing of seats is straightforward: the closer you get to the competition pool, the higher the price.

    Ticket prices range from $55 to $390 for single-day tickets.

  • All session tickets

    All session tickets allow you to attend all nine days of the Olympic Swimming Trials. These tickets are significantly more expensive, and your cheapest option would be around $475 at the very end of the stands. However, if you'd like to sit anywhere closer, the price quickly climbs up to $2000+ per ticket.
