After a nearly six month delay, the quest for number nine is set to begin.
Indiana men’s soccer head coach Todd Yeagley announced the 2020-21 schedule on Wednesday morning. The 10-match slate features five home games and five road games with all 10 matches coming against Big Ten Conference opponents.
“In a year that that has been challenging on many levels, the ability to compete and play matches is exciting,” Yeagley said in a release. “This group is ready for competition.”
Wisconsin (Feb. 19), Penn State (March 7), Michigan State (March 15), Northwestern (March 23), Maryland (April 4)
Ohio State (Feb. 23), Northwestern (Feb. 27), Wisconsin (March 11), Rutgers (March 19), Michigan (March 27)
Following the all-Big Ten regular season, the league will convene for the Big Ten Tournament, and then the College Cup will be held in North Carolina.
The Big Ten Tournament will be held from April 10-17. The location of the event is to be determined. The 2021 NCAA College Cup will be contested from May 13-17 at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C.
Redshirt senior Spencer Glass, redshirt senior A.J. Palazzolo, and senior Thomas Warr will serve as team captains.
For the tenth time in program history and for the second consecutive season, the IU men’s soccer program doubled up on Big Ten titles in 2019, winning both the regular season and tournament crowns. Indiana has won 16 regular season titles overall, and 14 tournament titles. The program has won eight NCAA national championships.
In October IU dedicated the Jerry F. Tardy Center at Armstrong Stadium. The new facility combines with Bill Armstrong Stadium and Jerry Yeagley Field to provide significant enhancements to the school’s soccer complex.
Located on the north end of Indiana Soccer’s Bill Armstrong Stadium and overlooking Jerry Yeagley Field, the new $7 million facility provides Indiana’s men’s and women’s soccer programs with new training, meeting and team room spaces.
In its release, IU stated that men’s soccer matches will be played without fans indefinitely.
