Omaha Lancers, UNO Mavericks to play hockey outdoors at TD Ameritrade Park

The Omaha Lancers and UNO Mavericks will play hockey outdoors next February at TD Ameritrade Park.

The Omaha Sports Commission announced Tuesday that a hockey doubleheader will happen February 9, 2013. It’s being called the “Mutual of Omaha Battles on Ice.”

Sports Commission president Harold Cliff says it’ll be a family-friendly event, with the first game, between the Lancers and the Lincoln Stars, happening at 12:30 pm. Cliff says the outdoor hockey doubleheader has been in the works for two years.

He says the hockey doubleheader probably won’t be an annual event.

TD Ameritrade Park hosts the College World Series. It also hosted the Red Sky Music Festival last summer. Tickets will go on sale in October.
