A Fresh Look
The Omaha Sports Complex (OSC), is the home to all our Sporting NE (Omaha) indoor training, camps, futsal college ID and college search events.
FUN FACT: Did you know the OSC is the ONLY full size indoor field in Omaha?
With the new rebranding of our club, it is time to give the OSC a little face lift. The new design changes will begin later this month and hope to have everything complete by mid October.
FUN FACT TWO: Did you know October - March the OSC averages over 350 people a day that walk through the doors between 5pm - 10pm? From Friday - Sunday that number significantly increases with futsal and league games.
There are a number of opportunities to get your business seen at the OSC. If you are interested contact Sven Jasinski for more details.
