ELON, N.C. – Elon University Athletics and men’s soccer head coach Marc Reeves announced the upcoming 2021 spring schedule on Friday, Feb. 5. The eight-match regular season schedule features four contests at Rudd Field on Elon’s campus.
“Our staff and players are truly excited and eager for the opportunity to compete this Spring,” Reeves began. “It has been an extended lay off for many college soccer programs, but I am proud of our players continuous dedication to improvement and the many adjustments that they have made, always looking to adapt and maximize each day and any given situation. We understand the pandemic has impacted many people in many ways and we are thankful to the frontline workers and again grateful to start competing again.”
The Phoenix’s four-match home slate includes one contest in February, one in March, and two in April. Elon will then prepare to compete in the CAA Championships from April 15-18. Throughout the year, the Phoenix will play host to programs such as Liberty (Feb. 21), VCU (March 7), College of Charleston (April 4) and William & Mary (April 10) respectively.
