Swing for the Fences
Home to the NCAA Men’s College World Series since 1950, Omaha is a bucket-list destination for college baseball fans. Omaha’s resume is filled with impressive sporting events, including the U.S. Senior Open; NCAA Basketball, Volleyball and Wrestling Championships; U.S. Speed Skating; FIVB and NORCECA Women’s International Volleyball; the National Veterans Wheelchair games; and the U.S. Olympic Swim Trials (4X). Olympic coaches and swimmers praise Omaha, saying the “convenience factor is unparalleled,” and that the city makes athletes and fans “feel welcome and important.” The total experience is what solidified the Swim Trials returning to Omaha in 2020.
There’s a reason Omaha is a player. The city is centrally located, making travel easy. Omaha has a strong volunteer base, and sporting events enjoy tremendous support from the local community. Omaha provides a unified team approach to events making it easier for event planners to do their job.
