Men's Soccer to Again Host Nation-Wide Audience in Fox Soccer's Telecast of UMBC Retrievers vs. UNH Wildcats on Oct. 14
For the second consecutive season, UMBC men's soccer will be featured on the NSCAA's College Game of the Week on Fox Soccer.
The Retrievers will host the New Hampshire Wildcats on Friday evening, Oct. 14 at 7:00 p.m. as one of twelve men's collegiate matches on Fox Soccer.
The rematch of the 2010 America East Conference title game will be UMBC's second consecutive home game as part of the NSCAA's package. The Retrievers hosted Boston University at UMBC Stadium on Oct. 15, 2010 and drew a record crowd of 2,781.
This contest will take place on the plush Bermuda grass surface at the newly-renamed Retriever Soccer Park.
UMBC will be celebrating its Homecoming activities from Oct. 12-15 and this men's soccer clash will highlight the weekend festivities.
The Retrievers are preparing to defend an America East title in 2011. UMBC defeated host Princeton, 2-1, in the first round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament and deadlocked William & Mary in the second round, but failed to advance via penalty kicks.
