Widener Soccer to Go for Goals in Pro Stadium

October 5, 2011

If you haven’t seen a Widener soccer game this year or visited PPL Park on the Chester waterfront where the Philadelphia Union play their Major League Soccer games, Friday night is your chance.

The Pride will face Lycoming with the women’s game starting at 6 p.m. and the men’s contest beginning at 8 .pm.  This is the second straight year that Widener has played on the big-time turf.

“Having a chance to compete in a professional stadium, let alone one of the best soccer specific venues in the country, is an experience that few student-athletes get to experience,” said Widener men’s soccer coach Brent Jacquette.  “The relationship between Widener University and the Philadelphia Union has truly created a once in a lifetime opportunity for our men’s and women’s soccer programs by playing in PPL Park.”
