Nighthawks Single Game Tickets Go On Sale

Football fans have embraced the team and are ready for kickoff.

With 8,000 season tickets already sold, twice as many are now available.

"We've been ringing off the hook by people who are wanting to buy single game tickets this year," Nighthawks Director of Ticket Sales Mike Wierbicki said. "Fans have been passionate ever since we finished up last year about when are season tickets coming out, when are single games going on sale. We were kind of expecting a nice hit this morning."

That passion led to the Nighthawks selling out every game last year.

That momentum continues.

"Omaha is that kind of model franchise in the league, they keep saying that because we've done so well and we're still doing well, it's kind of exciting that Omaha is setting the trend for the rest of the league," Nighthawks Public Relations Director Sarah Brumfield said.

That model is cast through public events like this one at a Bellevue golf course.

Where fans can meet a local Heisman Trophy winner.

Or an Ohio airman can get an autograph from former Buckeye Running Back Maurice Clarette.

To fans here, football is king.

"They love high school football, they love pee wee football, they love junior high football they love NFL football, they love college football they were going to love UFL football," Nighthawks Quarterback Eric Crouch said.

Lynne Panting got her card signed while making the turn during her golf game.

The Nighthawks' bandwagon caught her interest.

"I might go see a game," she said. "I think the Nighthawks might be a good thing. It'll be fun. It's all football and its something to do."

And affordable tickets makes it easy on a fan's wallet.

"There's nothing like a live game and the excitement and they really turned out last year for the Nighthawks so hopefully they'll have another good season and build on that," Nighthawks fan Jim Maloney said.

Single game tickets are available through the team's website, at the Century Link Omaha ticket office or by calling 402-403-3776.

The Nighthawks home opener is September 15th.
