Omaha To Host Women's World Volleyball Tournnament

Omaha has been chosen to host the final round of a top women's world volleyball tournament in 2015.

Harold Cliff with the Omaha Sports Commission says the International Volleyball Federation's Volleyball World Grand Prix is the premier annual international women's volleyball tournament run by the federation.

U.S. women's national volleyball team head coach Karch Kiraly says that outside of the Olympics in 1984 and 1996, this will be the first major federation event the United States has ever hosted.

The final round will be played July 22-26, 2015, at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha.  The top six teams in the world will compete, including Team USA.  It will be held a year before the Olympic Games in Rio.

Tickets go on sale this June.
