MECA already looking at life after UNO hockey
When the University of Nebraska at Omaha starts playing hockey at UNO's new arena in 2015-16, the agency that runs the CenturyLink Center Omaha will save some money, since it won't have to provide an ice rink and it will pick up about 20 dates it can use for other events.

With a year and a half to go before the University of Nebraska at Omaha pulls its hockey program out of CenturyLink Center, arena officials are already running the numbers and figuring out how they'll make up for the loss.
Losing one of the main tenants of its premier facility is just one of the big changes ahead for the Metropolitan Entertainment and Convention Authority. The City of Omaha is gearing up to close the Omaha Civic Auditorium, the smallest of the three properties that MECA runs.
