Ralston Arena regroups after loss of GM

Only a few months after its opening, the general manager of the Ralston Arena has resigned to take a similar position in Bemidji, and a new GM is expected to be hired early next year.

The arena, which is home to the Omaha Lancers (USHL) and the University of Nebraska-Omaha men’s basketball team, opened in October. Curtis Webb, who was hired last year to oversee the arena opening, has moved on to the Minnesota facility. Webb was charged with selling advertising and suites at the arena as well as securing a naming-rights deal. That deal never materialized, so the Nebraska-based facility is going by the Ralston Arena name for now.


“Curtis has done a great job to get us to where we are,” said Ralston Mayor Don Groesser. “I don’t have any major complaints with him. I don’t even consider (his resignation) to be a setback, honestly. I don’t think we will miss a beat.”

The arena, which cost $36 million, seats up to 5,300, depending on the event.
