April 24, 2008
MEMPHIS - The University of Memphis men's soccer schedule is complete for the upcoming 2008 season, head coach Richie Grant announced Wednesday.
The schedule features 18 contests, eight of which will be played at the Mike Rose Soccer Complex. The Tigers will kick-off the 2008 season at home on Aug. 29 as they will host the Memphis Diadora Tournament. Joining the Tigers in that tournament will be Oral Roberts, UAB and Bradley.
In addition to its own tournament, Memphis will participate in two other early season tournaments, at Vermont and UAB. The Tigers will also travel to play Creighton, one of the nation's elite programs.
The Tigers will host four conference matches in 2008. UAB, SMU, Tulsa and Marshall will be coming to town.
"This schedule shows our commitment to playing good teams outside Conference USA," Grant said. "Our players are looking forward to coming back in August and meeting the challenges of a tough schedule."
Spots are still available in the soccer program's 4th annual golf tournament fundraiser, being held on Monday, April 28th at the Irene Golf & Country Club at 1 p.m.
