“The ticket launch is a major milestone in the preparation for the World Athletics Championships Oregon22, the first time our flagship event has been held on U.S. soil,” World Athletics President Sebastian Coe said.

“In little more than a year, the greatest athletes in the world will gather in the state-of-the-art, purpose-built track and field venue of Hayward Field. The competition schedule has been carefully designed to allow multi-talented athletes to contest all traditional doubles, so this will be the perfect stage for our athletes to show just how extraordinary they are. There’s nothing like being there, so don’t miss out.”

Ticketed competition will take place at the reimagined Hayward Field at the University of Oregon, a world-class venue designed with one singular purpose: to elevate the sport of track & field. Every seat comes with a wow!

“Hayward Field will provide the best spectator experience ever for a World Athletics Championships, with fans as close to the action as possible,” said U.S. Olympic champion Sanya Richards-Ross, a four-time Olympian and Board Member of WCH Oregon22.

“There is no doubt in my mind that every single session will sell out, and sell out fast, for a Championships that is already shaping up to be ‘The Best of All Worlds’.”

Price categories reflect the seating section location in the stadium, and pricing bands differ depending on the event finals contested per session. Additional temporary seating will be added to maximize the number of fans who can attend.

Organizers have committed to making tickets affordable, with 50 percent of all tickets on public sale costing less than $100. Adult pricing begins at $25, and children’s tickets are under $10 for select sessions.

Special commemorative prices on Friday, July 22, will honor several world records achieved by American athletes at World Championships throughout history. With finals in the women’s 400m hurdles and the men’s and women’s 400m taking place that evening, a tribute to one-lap races was in order.

  • 400 tickets will be priced at $52.16 – the world record Dalilah Muhammad set in the 400m hurdles at the World Championships in 2019.
  • 400 tickets will be priced at $43.18 – the world record Michael Johnson set in the 400m at the 1999 World Championships.
  • Additionally, all children’s tickets on July 22 will be priced at $8.95 to mark Mike Powell’s world record long jump performance at the 1991 World Championships.
