(Omaha, NE) -- The Olympic curling trials in Omaha are seeing higher attendance this year.
Thursday marks the seventh day of the trials and officials report more than 26-thousand tickets have already been sold. In 2017, Omaha officials said around 22-thousand tickets were sold.
Josh Todd, Executive Director of the Omaha Sports Commission, tells 6 News the city Omaha supports every event that comes to town.
“The sport of curling has really blown up since the ‘18 Olympics when Team Schuster won the Americans’ first-ever gold in the sport, so the sport itself has seen explosive growth," said Todd.
The curling finals will be this Friday, November 19th.
