Omaha To Host Future NCAA Volleyball, Hockey Championships

OMAHA – Omaha will remain a regular stop for the NCAA championship in women’s volleyball.

The championship sites for several sports were announced by the NCAA on Wednesday, with Omaha being chosen to host the volleyball Final Four in 2022. The national semifinal and championship matches will be played at CHI Health Center Omaha.

Other sites awarded for women’s volleyball were Tampa, Florida (2023); Louisville, Kentucky (2024); and Kansas City, Missouri (2025).

The fall 2021 championship was previously scheduled for Columbus, Ohio.

The championship for the 2020 season was scheduled to be in Omaha in December, and it’s possible the rescheduled championship may still be held there in April. The NCAA has not yet announced whether Omaha will remain as the host site for the volleyball championship this spring.

In other Omaha site host news, Omaha Athletics and the Sioux Falls Sports Authority will host an NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Regional in 2024 and 2026, the NCAA announced today.

The regionals will be held at the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, S.D.  The building is a regularly used hockey venue, serving as the home to the Sioux Falls Stampede of the USHL, and seats more than 10,500 for hockey.

This will be the first time the Mavericks have hosted an NCAA Championship event since hosting the Division II wrestling championships in 2010 at Sapp Fieldhouse.
