Omaha Lancers TicketsThe Omaha Lancers is a Tier 1 junior hockey team — the highest level of competition in the United States for young aspiring hockey prospects who want to acquire experience and skills for their professional careers. The Lancers franchise began in 1986 with a less-than-auspicious 0-48 start. However, within four years, the Lancers had claimed the Clark Cup title as the best team in the entire USHL. This was the start of an impressive run, which culminated with four championships in five seasons. After establishing itself at the top of the league, more titles followed in 1998, 2001 and 2008. The team also added two national championships as the best team in American junior hockey in 2001 and 2008. Altogether, its seven Clark Cup wins are the most in modern USHL history. If you want to be a part of this impressive legacy, then you should purchase Omaha Lancers tickets at StubHub.
