      I may have a line of a full set of tickets to the Olmypic Trials. Basically, a buddy of mine bought the 15 session pass for himself right when they went on sale. Apparently, a conflict has come up that he cannot reschedule and he will no longer be able to attend. I’d snatch these up myself, but I will also be busy during that time and unable to go.

      Here’s the details I have from him:
      All session pass to the Olympic Trials held at the Qwest Center in Omaha, Nebraska in the form of 15 single session tickets. The tickets are located in Section 224, Row D, Seat 12 for all sessions. He would like to sell the tickets as a group like they were purchased, but would be willing to work with potential buyers and split the tickets up however would work best.

      Here’s a link to Ticketmaster page where you can find info on the sessions as well as a seating chart:

      Please PM me for price inquiries, purchases, or any general questions if you do not want to simply make a reply post.

      Alright everyone, the tickets are officially for sale. I would like the sell all fifteen tickets to one person, but will more than happily split the tickets up to get them all sold. Prices are negotiable to an extent, and I will do my best to honor all offers made at a discounted price.

      The 15-ticket, all session pass is $500.

      If you wanted to purchase tickets session-by-session, I propose the following rate scale:
      Prelims tickets are $30.
      Finals tickets are $38.

      I will ship the tickets to anywhere via USPS first-class mail. If it is overseas or an obscure location where the shipping is crazy(like more than $5 or $6), I would appreciate it you helped out with a little of the shipping cost (say half?).

      Event Details:
      The event takes place June 29th – July 6th at the Qwest Center in Omaha, Nebraska.
      The tickets are located in Section 224, Row D, Seat 12 for all sessions.
      Prelims are at 11AM, finals at 7PM.
      Parking is located within 4 blocks of the facility.

      I do not know the layout of the facility, so I was wondering what kind of seats these are.

      Click on the helpful links that rustie has provided. One of them takes you to the ticketmaster website where they have a seating chart display.

      As wonderboy so kindly pointed out, the link prefaced by “Ticketmaster event details and seating chart:” gives you a layout of the facility. Maybe I should’ve bolded that stuff to make it standout…

      Again, the tickets are located in Section 224, Row D, Seat 12 for all sessions.

      So it costs $68 to watch one day of swimming? I can pre-party at ODonovans and hit up a U2 concert at Target Center for that kind of cash. Seems a bit spendy.

      Also, this meet being in the worst city in America, Bugaha, does not help matters.

      That would be the cost, yes. It may be a little spendy, but it is the Olympic Trials.

      As far the site is concerned, it’s fairly central the US.

      Mister Obvious is embarassed that someone beat him to the punch on this one.

      PS – Where can I get $68 U2 tickets?

    • #42567

      I’m cheking on the exact seating situation. So far my e-mails have gone unreturned and the people I reach on the phone know next to nothing. I’ll see what I can do.

      Now that the dates is a bit closer, I’d like to remind everyone of the tickets that are for sale for the Olympic Swimming Trials taking place in Omaha June 29th – July 6th at the Qwest Center. I would like the sell all fifteen tickets to one person, but will more than happily split the tickets up to get them all sold. Prices are negotiable to an extent, and I will do my best to honor all offers made at a discounted price.

      The 15-ticket, all session pass has been reduced in price to $450 ($50 off of the original post).

      If you wanted to purchase tickets session-by-session:
      Prelims tickets are $25 each (down from $30)
      Finals tickets are $35 each (down from $38)

      I just checked the Ticketmaster website, and currently you can get the following tickets:

      All session pass at either end of the pool rather than the side: $400
      Single session prelims: $35
      Single session finals: $45
      One day, two session pass: $80

      I will ship the tickets to anywhere via USPS first-class or express mail, depending on when I get the tickets and when you need them.

      Feel free to post or PM me with your questions and comments.

      Is this the first Mac of the MIAC post since it was sold?

      To clarify… O’Donavan’s and the U2 show are gonna be closer to $80… at least that was the rough cost when I did that 4 years ago.

      How did they build a pool in that place? Is that on another thread? It is a temporary pool, right?

      Notice the date of the post. Someone just resurrected the thread.

      Got it. Thanks.

      I guess I just miss my friend Mac.

      That is correct. I’m really hoping to sell these tickets since I have no use for them. Just thought I’d make the post show up on people’s “Posts since last login” page.

      Sorry for confusing you Chapel. It was never my intention to make it appear as though Mac was back. Although I have a sneaking suspicion that he lives on under another alias….

      I’m curious as to why I have received no interest in these trial tickets. Is the price too high? Are the seats not good enough? Is it because it’s a sole ticket and not a pair? Too far to drive? Or is it something else entirely?

      If it’s price, I can be more flexible. Make me an offer and I’ll let you know if it’ll work for me.

      Feedback would be appreciated.

      Hey Gustie. I think the main thing deterring people from buying the tickets is the combined cost of the trials trip. The tickets are one thing, but I just booked my flight out to Omaha and it was 423 dollars! Add in a hotel plus tickets and you are looking at a pretty expensive trip to Nebraska. Factor in the week of vacation for people that have full time jobs, its a pretty tough sell. I know I was considering buying these tickets until I found out I could attend the meet as accredited media.

    • #42575

      Thanks, Colby.

      I kind of figured that it was the combined cost that was deterring people. I may be better off trying to get an ad in the Omaha paper or selling them on eBay.

      Unless I post it here, consider the tickets up for sale until the last session starts!
