IU men’s soccer announces 2023 schedule

The quest for nine begins in three months.

Indiana men’s soccer head coach Todd Yeagley announced his team’s 2023 season schedule on Wednesday.

The 2023 slate includes seven teams that made the 2022 NCAA Tournament, eight teams that finished top 40 in RPI last fall as well as 10 home games at Bill Armstrong Stadium.

“Our 2023 schedule is packed with top teams from coast to coast,” Yeagley said in a release. “Having a challenging non-conference schedule ensures we are battle-tested and prepared for postseason opportunities.

“The Big Ten continues to be one of the top conferences in the nation, and we expect great matches as we all chase the conference title. We are fortunate to have an unbelievable atmosphere at Armstrong Stadium, and we look forward to the excitement ahead this fall.”

After three exhibition matches, the season kicks off Aug. 24 against Notre Dame in South Bend. Five of the last six matches between the in-state opponents have been decided by one goal, all wins for Indiana.

IU’s home opener is set for Aug. 29 against DePaul. Indiana was 9-1-3 on its home field in 2022 and holds a 354-70-52 record all-time at “The Bill.” Five of IU’s contests against 2022 top-40 RPI teams will be played at Armstrong Stadium.

The full 2023 schedule is below.
