The University of Michigan women’s soccer team announced Thursday (June 20) its 2019 schedule. The 2019 slate features 11 home matches, including one exhibition contest at U-M Soccer Stadium.
The Wolverines will face six teams that made an appearance in the 2019 NCAA Tournament, five of which are from the Big Ten Conference.
“We are very excited about our 2019 schedule,” said second-year head coach Jennifer Klein. “We put together a great collection of opponents that will make for fun, challenging and exciting soccer matches.”
Klein and the Wolverines will kick off the campaign with an exhibition match against Iowa Aug. 16 at 7 p.m. inside U-M Soccer Stadium. Michigan will open its 2019-20 athletic season Thursday, Aug. 22 when it welcomes Marshall to Ann Arbor for a 7:30 p.m. contest.
