University of Nebraska Omaha and Nelligan Sports Marketing Announce Partnership

Omaha, NE - The University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO) and Nelligan Sports Marketing (NSM) announced today that they have agreed on a long-term partnership which gives NSM the exclusive rights to manage the University’s athletic corporate sponsorship program and media rights.  The agreement will also provide the opportunity for NSM to assist the University in securing business-to-business agreements that extend across campus.

 “All of us at UNO are thrilled to be entering into this agreement with Nelligan Sports Marketing” said Trev Alberts, Director of Athletics.  “This partnership is another step in the growth of Maverick Athletics and the University as a whole.  Our goal was to find a company that would be a true partner in every sense of the word; someone who would represent our best interests and be as dedicated as we are to the long term success of UNO.  We look forward to working with NSM for many years to come.”

“We’re very excited to be entering into a partnership with UNO,” said Mike Palisi, Executive Vice President at NSM.  “Behind the tremendous leadership of University Chancellor, Dr. John Christensen and Athletic Director Trev Alberts, the University has shown incredible amounts of growth, as seen in their transition to the Division I level, moving men’s basketball to the brand new, state of the art Ralston Sports and Events Center and the continued success of the Maverick hockey program.  In addition, the connection the University has within the Omaha community will provide corporate America with an unmatched opportunity to reach a wide array of consumers.  We look forward to working with Trev, his staff, and the rest of the University in building a corporate sponsorship program that will make everyone associated with the University proud.”
