Olympic Trials Ticketing Will “Start Over”

Karen Richards

TrackTown USA has news for spectators of this summer’s U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials in Eugene. CEO Michael Reilly said in a statement Thursday that based on Hayward Field’s capacity and current health protocols, they cannot honor the number of tickets already sold.


All ticket holders will be refunded their money. TrackTown USA will announce new ticketing procedures in May, using updated COVID-19 safety regulations. 


Athletes will have first choice of seats and days, followed by those who have held tickets until this point. The statement says TrackTown USA will try to give as many people as possible an opportunity to attend at least one day of the 10-day event. Those who’ve paid for tickets will be contacted with details about next steps. The U.S. Track and Field Olympic Team Trials are scheduled for June 18th to 27th.
