USA Swimming Adds Colts, Pacers as Partners for U.S. Olympic Trials in Indianapolis

USA Swimming on Friday named both the Indianapolis Colts and Pacers Sports and Entertainment as Centennial Partners for June’s U.S. Olympic Trials in Indianapolis.

The meet to determine American qualifiers for the 2024 Paris Olympics will be held at the home of the Colts, Lucas Oil Stadium, from June 15-23.

“Receiving support from the Colts, Pacers and Fever shows that athletes and staff who perform at the highest level recognize and lift each other up,” USA Swimming CEO and President Tim Hinchey said in a press release. “We appreciate these incredible organizations for investing in bringing the best swimmers in the world to Indianapolis. And we promise a show at the stadium unlike any other!”

“By becoming Centennial Partners, the Indianapolis Colts and Pacers Sports & Entertainment continue to showcase their commitment to the sports strategy here in Indianapolis and their belief in our mission at Indiana Sports Corp,” Indiana Sports Corp President Patrick Talty said. “Their support will be vital in accomplishing our goal of hosting this unique, nine-day event that will leave a lasting impact on our community. I cannot thank them enough for being such great community partners.”

The Colts and Pacers are among the local community partners working with the Indiana Sports Corporation to host the event. Centennial Partners received consideration for ticketing, hospitality and brand recognition, for both the competition and community programs like learn-to-swim clinics attached to the event. The name harkens to the centennial of the last Paris Olympics, held in 1924, for which trials in Indianapolis is a stepping stone.

“Indiana has a rich history and tradition both with the Olympics and swimming, and we are thrilled that as all eyes will be on the best swimmers in the world,” Pacers Sports & Entertainment CEO Rick Fuson said. “Indy will have the chance to once again shine a spotlight on what makes our city and state special.”

“The Olympic Swimming Trials are yet another feather in the cap of Indianapolis when it comes to attracting and hosting the top events in the world,” Colts Vice Chair and Owner Carlie Irsay-Gordon said. “The Indianapolis Colts are thrilled to partner with USA Swimming and Indiana Sports Corp to celebrate 100 years of Olympic events in our city and to make the 2024 Trials the best and most successful ever.”
