Omaha will once again be play host to the NCAA Volleyball Championship.
The NCAA announced Wednesday that the CHI Health Center Omaha will host the 2022 (December 15-17) championship, but has not yet released the 2021 spring volleyball championship host site. Omaha was set to host the fall 2020 championships before conferences, and ultimately the NCAA, postponed most competitions.
Husker head coach John Cook is pleased with the event coming back to the state of Nebraska.
“This is awesome news for Omaha, the state of Nebraska and volleyball fans across the country,” Cook said. “Omaha has served as a fantastic host in the past, and the way they’ve embraced this championship is unmatched by any other city in America.
“The atmosphere and support in Omaha is what every college volleyball player deserves when they are pursuing a national championship. There are always huge crowds when Omaha hosts, and I have no doubt tickets will sell out fast. This will be a great experience for players, coaches and fans, and the University of Nebraska is excited to be a part of it.”
Nebraska has reached the NCAA Semifinals in every season the event has been held in Omaha. The Huskers won national titles in 2006 and 2015, and fell in five-sets to Penn State in 2008.
Columbus, Ohio is hosting the fall 2021 (December 16-18) event. The full NCAA announced future Division I Women’s Volleyball Championship locations is below:
