"Curling Night in America will bring a new to focus to Omaha, one with an international flair, and serve as a great preview before the Trials this November."
- Wes Hall, President/Executive Director of the Omaha Sports Commission
In conjunction with the World Curling Federation, U.S. Curling Association, and the United States Olympic Committee, NBC Sports Group will air the series beginning in October, as a lead-in to the Olympic Team Trials and U.S. Olympic Mixed Doubles Team Trials.
“Since securing the bid to host the 2018 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Curling, we have witnessed growth in public awareness, excitement, anticipation, and curiosity relating to the sport throughout Omaha. This trend will continue as we host Curling Night in America,” said Wes Hall, President/Executive Director of the Omaha Sports Commission. “Curling Night in America will bring a new to focus to Omaha, one with an international flair, and serve as a great preview before the Trials this November.”
The August competition will feature three American teams taking on China, Japan, and Scotland in team and mixed doubles competition.
“With the next Curling Night in America series starting in the fall, fans will be able to enjoy an exceptional amount of curling on U.S. television from October right through the Men’s World Curling Championships in April 2018,” said Rick Patzke, USA Curling Chief Executive Officer. “We are grateful for the partnerships with NBC, the U.S. Olympic Committee, the World Curling Federation, and USA Curling sponsors that make this possible. Having this international event in Omaha as a precursor to the Olympic Trials is also a significant bonus, and we’re thankful for the support of the city and Omaha Sports Commission in making this happen.”
UNO is proud to be the Education Sponsor of both Curling Night in America (Aug. 23-27) and the Olympic Trials (Nov. 11-18).
All-session tickets for the Olympic Trials are now available.

History of Curling in Omaha
The beginnings of curling in Omaha began in 1960 at the old Ak-Sar-Ben Race Track location inside the hockey rink and a couple years later, inside the old 4H Barn during the winter. In 2000, the track and barn were closed and curling in Omaha is now done at UNO's Baxter Arena on the Holland Community Ice.
