CHARLOTTESVILLE - The University of Virginia men's soccer team's game at Wake Forest on November 4 will be televised live on Fox Soccer Channel. The game will be part of a "College Soccer Game of the Week" to air live every Friday night on the network from mid-September to early November, the network, in partnership with the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, announced Wednesday.
"We are obviously excited to be a part of Fox Soccer Channel's Game of the Week lineup," said Virginia head coach George Gelnovatch. "This package is a huge bonus for college soccer, and with four of the games being ACC matches, it is great for our conference."
The game time of the Virginia-Wake Forest game will be moved to 8:00 p.m. to accommodate the broadcast. The Cavaliers and Demon Deacons are both currently ranked in the top 20 nationally. The teams have met five times over the past two seasons, including twice in the ACC Tournament and once in the NCAA Tournament, with the Cavaliers winning all five matchups.
Fox Soccer Channel is available on cable systems throughout the nation as well as DirecTV and Dish Network. Below is the 2005 schedule of the Fox Soccer Channel Game of the Week package, with all games slated to air live at 8:00 p.m. ET.
