The 2014 IAAF World Junior Championships are coming to the U.S. for the first time in history. The event July 22-27 features competition between the world's best track and field athletes under the age of 20.

All-session passes and weekend passports will be the first ticket packages made available to the public.

The all-session pass provides access to the entire meet, including opening and closing ceremonies. The weekend passport provides admission to sessions on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Single-day tickets will go on sale in late spring 2014.

TrackTown USA is the local organizing committee for the IAAF event.

The Eugene-based organization also organized the 2008 and 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials. It will perform those duties at the 2015 USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, the 2016 IAAF World Indoor Championships in Portland, and the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials.
