OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Union Omaha, the only professional soccer team in Nebraska, has announced a new partnership with WOWT to broadcast the 2022 season.

WOWT, in partnership with Union Omaha, will broadcast a total of 11 matches over the course of the 2022 USL League One season. Nine away matches will be broadcast, as well as both the home opener and closer.

This partnership marks the first broadcast deal in Union Omaha’s history.

According to Union Omaha General Manager Peter Marlette, securing a broadcast partnership was a major priority.

We’re thrilled to be able to bring our fans Union Omaha soccer at home without requiring a subscription.”
