One of the nation’s premier men’s soccer programs will seek its ninth national title during the 2018 season.
The season begins with an exhibition match in Bloomington on August 12 against Xavier. The regular season starts on August 24 against Wake Forest in North Carolina.
There will be no shortage of high end competition on the 2018 schedule as the Hoosiers have one of the most difficult slates in the country. The 2018 campaign features matches against 10 NCAA Tournament teams from last season and nine squads who finished in the top-25 or were receiving votes in the final United Soccer Coaches poll.
On the opening weekend the Hoosiers face two top five programs from last year in Wake Forest and North Carolina.
IU is ranked No. 2 in this year’s preseason United Soccer Coaches Poll.
