The entire NCAA volleyball tournament is on its way to Omaha
(WOWT) – A Division I committee on Wednesday approved a plan to bring the entire NCAA women’s volleyball championship to Omaha this spring.
The recommendation is part of a plan to consolidate three sports in the division “based on medical guidance to move all rounds of the championships to predetermined locations and reduce the total number of locations,” the NCAA press release said.
It’s big news for the city to host the national semifinals and finals last year before the pandemic forced massive event cancellations across the country. The plan brings all 48 teams participating in the championship to the arena of the CHI Health Center in April.
Although this is subject to change, this year’s tournament will take place from April 13th to 24th in the CHI Health Center Arena. The semi-finals on April 22nd and the national championship game are scheduled for April 24th.
