EUGENE, Ore. -- If you're looking to buy tickets for the 2020 Olympic Trials, you can expect to pay a higher price when they go on sale next Thursday.

All-session tickets along the backstretch of the track will cost $680, where similar tickets cost $525 during the 2016 trials. For tickets at the homestretch, fans will be paying $795, a $585 expense in the last trials.

According to Tracktown USA, the price hike is a result of the Olympic Committee making significant changes to requirements.

"Not only do we have different obligations this time, but the cost of those obligations have gone up," said CEO Micheal Reilly.

About two-thirds of the trials' operating budget needs to come from ticket sales, according to organizers. While the increased seating capacity at the still-under-construction Hayward Field will help to insulate some of those costs, they said some ticket prices needed to increase.

About one-third of the seats will stay at their 2016 prices.

"We'll still go on sale as we have in the past next spring with single-day tickets, and a lot of those prices will be different day-by-day," said Reilly. "So there will still be plenty of great value for customers to buy in the spring."

Tracktown USA will continue to monitor the construction of Hayward Field and expect to complete planning for the 2020 Olympic Trials by the end of the year.
