December 21, 2021 - United Soccer League One (USL1) - Union Omaha News Release

PAPILLION, Neb. - Union Omaha announced today the initial group of returning players for its 2022 campaign. Five players from the 2021 USL League One Championship roster make up the group of initial returners.

The group of returning players is led by 2021 USL League One Finals MVP and All-League First Team member Damiá Viader. Viader, a Barcelona native, has been a part of Union Omaha since the club's inaugural season in 2020 and was a force not often contained during the 2021 season.

Joining Viader will be Connor Doyle. Doyle was one of only three players to feature in every match during the 2021 season and was second on the team in assists during his first season with Union Omaha.

JP Scearce, who made his professional debut with Union Omaha in 2020, will also be returning for the 2022 season. Scearce logged the fourth most minutes played, tallying one goal and three assists during the 2021 campaign.

Dalton Knutson will be returning for his second season with Union Omaha after appearing in 23 matches during the 2021 season and goalkeeper Kevin Piedrahita will also return after joining the squad just before the start of the 2021 campaign.

Union Omaha is still in the midst of discussions with other members of the 2021 squad about returning and will utilize the free agent market to solidify its roster leading into the 2022 campaign, which is slated to begin in the spring of 2022. Additional player signing announcements will be made via press release and through the club's official social media channels.

Season tickets and mini plans for the 2022 season are currently available via or through the Werner Park Ticket Office by calling 402-738-5100.
