In order to celebrate the game of volleyball in the state of Nebraska, they held a full on press conference to announce "Volleyball Day in Nebraska" a volleyball double header between D2 powerhouse Nebraska-Kearney and Wayne State College in the first match and D1 teams in Nebraska vs Omaha in the second match in a event which will also have an major concert following the matches. The events is suppose to celebrate the game of volleyball in the state and set set the NCAA D1 and D2 volleyball attendances records.

---------------------------
Volleyball Day in Nebraska is coming to Memorial Stadium this August.

The Nebraska volleyball program will host the University of Nebraska-Omaha on Wednesday, Aug. 30 at 7 p.m. in Memorial Stadium as part of a local doubleheader celebrating the impact of volleyball on the state of Nebraska. The University of Nebraska-Kearney will play Wayne State College in an exhibition match at 4:30 p.m. to start the event. Memorial Stadium gates will open at 3:30 p.m.

Following the Nebraska-UNO match, a concert featuring a national recording artist will take place on a stage on the Memorial Stadium field. The musical artist will be announced at a later date. The Huskers' Teraflex court will be positioned near the north end zone of Tom Osborne Field with the concert stage closer to midfield.

In conjunction with Friday's announcement of the matches, Gov. Jim Pillen will make a special proclamation celebrating the impact of the sport of volleyball in Nebraska.

"This is going to be a fantastic celebration of volleyball in the state of Nebraska," Nebraska Vice Chancellor, Director of Athletics Trev Alberts said. "Our Husker program has long been a source of pride throughout the state, and we are also proud that the success of Nebraska volleyball has played a large role in the exponential growth of the sport in Nebraska. We know our great fan base will embrace Volleyball Day in Nebraska and turn out in full force for this historic event. Go Big Red!"

"This is going to be a special day for the sport of volleyball in this state," Nebraska head coach John Cook said. "At Nebraska we're always aiming to 'Dream Big' and raise the bar, and there can't be a much bigger way to do that than to play a match outdoors in a 90,000-seat football stadium. We're excited that we're going to be able to include three other local schools as well to make it a statewide celebration. A Nebraska volleyball ticket is one of the hardest tickets in town to get, so we're pumped that this match will give so many more fans an opportunity to come watch us play and be part of a historic day."

Tickets for the match will go on sale to Nebraska volleyball season-ticket holders on Tuesday, April 25. Tickets to the outdoor match will not be part of the Nebraska volleyball season-ticket package and must be purchased separately. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, April 26. A ticket will gain entrance to both volleyball matches and the concert. Tickets will be $25 for adults and $5 for high school age and under. Ticket information for Nebraska, UNO, UNK and Wayne State students will be announced at a later date. Everyone, regardless of age, must have a ticket for admittance. Ticket sales will begin with North Stadium and the furthest north sections in East and West Stadiums. All seats will be reserved.

The Nebraska-UNO outdoor match will be televised on the Big Ten Network and streamed on the FOX Sports app. Streaming and possible television details for the UNK-Wayne State match are to be determined.

The Huskers Radio Network will broadcast the Huskers-Mavericks match on their radio affiliates. A live audio stream will be provided at Huskers.com and the Huskers App. The match will occur during the second week of the regular season. The Huskers will open the 2023 season with three matches at a home tournament at the Devaney Center from Aug. 25-27.

A few volleyball attendance records will be worth keeping an eye on as ticket sales begin. The largest-ever crowd for an NCAA volleyball match is 18,755 when Nebraska played Wisconsin on Dec. 18, 2021 in the NCAA Final at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. The largest NCAA regular-season crowd is 16,833 when Wisconsin hosted Florida at the Kohl Center in Madison, Wis., on Sept. 16, 2022.

In order to count as an official NCAA volleyball record, the official attendance must be counted at the conclusion of the second set of the Nebraska-UNO match. Anyone entering Memorial Stadium after that point will not count toward the total attendance.

The Husker volleyball program has sold out 303 consecutive regular-season matches, though the Memorial Stadium match would not count toward the streak as it is being played outside the Huskers' main home facility, the Devaney Center. Nebraska's sellout streak is an NCAA women's record. The Huskers have led the nation in attendance every season since moving into the Bob Devaney Sports Center in 2013.

Nebraska volleyball fans have continued to set the bar for attendance throughout the years:
Eight of the top nine crowds in NCAA volleyball history are matches that have involved the Huskers.
Of the 14 largest NCAA volleyball regular-season crowds, 13 have been Nebraska matches.
When Nebraska played at Creighton on Sept. 7, 2022 at the CHI Health Center, a then-regular-season NCAA record crowd of 15,797 turned out to watch the Huskers defeat the Bluejays, 3-2. It shattered the previous regular-season record of 14,022 (set by Nebraska and Creighton in 2018). The record lasted nine days, however, as Wisconsin and Florida drew a crowd of 16,833 to the Kohl Center on Sept. 16.

The Nebraska volleyball program has won five NCAA Championships and 34 conference championships in its 48-year history. The Huskers have a nation-leading 99 AVCA All-Americans and 39 CoSIDA Academic All-Americans. Nebraska volleyball also leads the nation in all-time wins (1,433), most weeks ranked in the AVCA Poll (586), most weeks ranked in the top 10 (530), and most weeks ranked No. 1 (102).

Omaha is coming off a 20-11 season and 14-4 record in the Summit League last year. That came one year after the Mavericks won the Summit League regular-season title with a 16-2 conference record. Head Coach Matt Buttermore took over the program in 2019 and has led the Mavs to back-to-back 20-win seasons, their first since making the transition to Division I in 2011.

Nebraska-Kearney ranks among the winningest programs in NCAA Division II with an all-time win percentage of .802. UNK has made 23 straight NCAA Tournaments and was the national runner-up in 2005 and 2019. Rick Squiers has been at the helm since 1999. The Lopers finished the 2022 season at 28-6 and were ranked 15th in the final AVCA Division II Coaches Poll.

Wayne State is coming off a 30-3 season and the program's first-ever NSIC regular-season title in 2022. The Wildcats ended the season ranked fourth in the AVCA Division II Coaches Poll after holding the No. 1 ranking for five weeks during the regular season. Scott Kneifl has led Wayne State as head coach since 2005, and the Wildcats have made 12 NCAA Division II Tournament appearances in his tenure, including their first-ever NCAA Division II Semifinals berth in 2015.

Both UNK and Wayne State consistently rank among the nation's Division II attendance leaders.

Volleyball is exploding. If I had a pile of money, I would definitely be an investor in that new pro league coming next year.

See. Great minds think alike. Good decision Burrows, I really think this league will hit. Maybe in 5 years this will be a screenshot for a freezing cold take when the league fails and shuts down.

Exploding is an understatement. I have two granddaughters playing club ball this spring - one in the 12s and one in the 14s. Between regional, American and national levels in each age group, there are over 300 in each age group in the Ohio Valley Region.

I've been enjoying the first year of men's volleyball as an OHSAA varsity sport. One of my freshman twins was forced out of baseball due to health reasons and has found his way to one of our school's 2 JV men's volleyball teams.

While we have been one of a handful of local schools who has had a club team for the past 15 years, more public schools are starting up programs. It will be fun to see some more public schools build up programs to go against the private schools who currently dominate the landscape.

Between baseball, lax, track, and now volleyball, lots of options for athletes in the spring now. Historically it was baseball and track only.

It's been a long time coming. When I was VP of the Ohio Volleyball Coaches Association 30+ years ago, boys volleyball was just getting started. It would seem like a no brainer in that the gym was open in the spring, the equipment was already there, and uniforms are very inexpensive. One of the big road blocks was the objection of spring sports coaches particularly baseball and track and the fear that their numbers would be depleted.

Here's an article from Friday's Boston Globe on the same subject. Thought you might be interested.

I don't ever see there being the same sort of interest or demand for this as there is for volleyball and basketball. Gym space alone is problematic in some schools.

Maybe in a percentage sense and a lot of that is a product of a very very small denominator as women's wrestling was nearly non-existent up until 5 minutes ago. I would say taking that into account I would still identify Volleyball as the faster growing sport.

You usually measure things like "fastest growing" by percentage.

And sometimes by the number of participants. Generally depends on who is making what point.

This reminds me in the early 1980s we routinely referred to osteopathic medicine as the fastest growing health profession as the number of osteopathic colleges had gone from five to ten in a matter of about a decade. That's a doubling in size, but at that time, of course, allopathic schools numbered something close to 150. Interestingly enough, though, in subsequent years osteopathic colleges continued to be added at an astounding rate and now number 38 and counting, with just a handful of new MD schools being added. Further OU-HCOM with its campuses in Dublin and Cleveland, in addition to Athens, is now the largest medical school in the Buckeye State in terms of enrollment. Maybe women's wrestling will enjoy a similar trajectory.

It's skyrocketing in our region. Jackson High School has a Sophomore who has a chance to be the States 1st 4x State Champ, as she won her Freshman and Sophomore campaigns.

Interesting. I would have never thought the high school girls' wrestling would become very popular. Glad to see a local SEO gal doing well!

My point is Women's wrestling is brand new and coming from basically non-existence. When playing percentages, yes it will be huge. But Womens Volleyball has been around forever but is experiencing a big boom.

We're basically talking about a portfolio of $10 growing to $50 versus a portfolio of $1,000,000 growing to $3,000,000. Sure the $10 portfolio grew at a faster rate but it still isn't in the same discussion as the mil portfolio.

Maybe in a percentage sense and a lot of that is a product of a very very small denominator as women's wrestling was nearly non-existent up until 5 minutes ago. I would say taking that into account I would still identify Volleyball as the faster growing sport.


You usually measure things like "fastest growing" by percentage.


My point is Women's wrestling is brand new and coming from basically non-existence. When playing percentages, yes it will be huge. But Womens Volleyball has been around forever but is experiencing a big boom.

We're basically talking about a portfolio of $10 growing to $50 versus a portfolio of $1,000,000 growing to $3,000,000. Sure the $10 portfolio grew at a faster rate but it still isn't in the same discussion as the mil portfolio.


Again, was pointing out the rising popularity of a sport. Did not realize that it would trigger so many. My apologizes.
