Extra tickets on sale for the Duel in the Pool

15th November 2013

More tickets will be on sale today from 10am for the most exciting swimming head-to-head in the calendar, the Duel in the Pool.

The biennial event will take place at Glasgow's Tollcross International Swimming Centre - host to the swimming events at the 2014 Commonwealth Games - on 20 and 21 December 2013 and now even more people can be at the heart of the action.

The Duel will see swimmers from USA and Europe facing off to win points for their team in what has become known as the 'Ryder Cup' of the pool.

With tickets already sold out for the second day of competition this is the last opportunity to be at the heart of the action at the future Commonwealth pool.

For swimmers like Craig McNally the opportunity to take part in such an exciting competition was something he couldn’t resist.

“I am really excited about the meet,” McNally said. “I got to watch the competition in 2009 and it looked exciting and fun and I can’t wait to be part of it now. It’s a really different format and totally head-to-head. It will be quick and I will be looking to up my game for the competition.

“The home support really means a lot for all of us. The crowds are what creates the buzz for the swimmers and gets you excited to race. At the Duel in the Pool the crowd will be really important to all of the swimmers. With these extra tickets on sale it gives more people the chance to experience the excitement of the meet and help to cheer us all on ahead of next year’s Commonwealth Games.”

Adult tickets start from £40 for the chance to see a host of world class swimmers battling it out in Glasgow this Christmas. To buy tickets visit http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/feature/british-swimming
