The Iowa Athletics Department announced on Monday that approximately 4,000 tickets to the U.S. Olympic Wrestling trials have been purchased since they first went on sale on June 6.

The trials will be held in Carver-Hawkeye Arena in April 2012; they will decide which athletes will represent the United States at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. The arena, which will have completed a $43 million renovation, seats 15,000 people.

Tickets are available in four different packages, and can be purchased at hawkeyesports.com or iowacitytolondon.com.

The ticket packages include all-session seats for children for $40, adults for $70, and VIPs for $175. The VIP package includes perks such as preferred seating, a parking pass, a Dan Gable bobblehead doll, and access to a lounge with food and drink.

The U.S. Olympic Committee has also approved a ticket package for 2011-12 Iowa wrestling season-ticket holders, who can purchase an all-session pass when ordering their season tickets. The package includes the bobblehead and a T-shirt.
