Athlete Ticket Offer - 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Track & Field
In an effort to better serve athletes, USATF and the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) have developed a ticket plan for qualified athletes. The LOC and USATF have set aside a limited number of reserved tickets for purchase by athletes for their families and friends. Both single-day tickets and 4-day ticket packages are available for early purchase by athletes, with the 4-day package offering an additional discount off of the public prices. (See Prices below)
The U.S. Olympic Trials are conducted in two, 4-day sessions. Session 1 goes from June 22-25. Session 2 is from June 28-July 1. The Athlete Family Plans will be sold as a 4-day ticket package. One ticket package includes one ticket per day for each session’s four days. There is a limit of four, 4-day ticket packages per athlete per session.
The Tier System will be used to offer tickets in the early stages prior to tickets becoming available to all athletes based on the following timeline:
For questions or clarification about your tier status, please contact Sariyu “Beka” Suggs at Sariyu.Suggs@usatf.org.
If you are only interested in single day tickets, these will be available to athletes beginning on Thursday, March 15th. Single day tickets will not be sold at a discounted rate, and they will not be available in all sections like the packages are. Prices depend on location. To order these tickets on March 15th, go to the website listed below and enter the promotional code: USATF
For family and friends in the Hammer, that event will not be taking place at Hayward Field. Hammer Time is a featured event hosted on the Nike Campus in Beaverton, OR (approximately 2 hours North) on Thursday, June 21st. This is a free event, and does not require a ticket.
The LOC will receive the list of 2012 Tier athletes along with their email addresses. Athletes will receive an email from the LOC that will include the promotional code that may be used online to purchase family ticket packages. The promotional code listed above is only for single day tickets and may not be used for family ticket packages. Please note that the email will come from the following address:
Athletes are responsible for enabling their email account to receive messages from this address into the inbox, for looking for emails from this address in their spam folder or for contacting the LOC ticket office directly if you cannot locate this email.
This promo code can be used until the athlete has reached the 4 package maximum per session (i.e. an athlete can purchase 1 package and then give the code to a parent who can purchase one of the remaining packages, as long as the 4 package maximum per session has not been reached).
All remaining athletes may begin purchasing tickets on April 1, 2012
All non-tiered athletes should email the LOC at email@example.com to receive a code to purchase tickets.
Please note that ticket purchases are based on availability under this athlete family ticket plan. If tickets are purchased at different times (i.e. 2 tickets purchased on Monday and 2 tickets purchased on Wednesday), they are not guaranteed to be either next to each other or even in the same section. All tickets are based upon availability. If all 4 seats need to be together, they must be purchased together.
Ticket prices are as follows:
There is a delivery fee for each package purchased.
