When it’s a certain temperature outside, it’s only natural to want to flock to sports that fit the season. For example, during the fall, there’s no better activity than sitting on the bleachers under the cool, crisp breeze, watching your favorite football team dominate the competition. On the same level, when it’s cold outside, you’re just going to want to keep up with your local hockey team! In Omaha, you’ve got some options, and one of those teams is the University of Nebraska Omaha Mavericks hockey team.

Because the games all start at or around 6 p.m., you can turn it into a whole night — get dinner before, grab a coffee after — just spend the whole evening in the city you love!
