Maryland men’s soccer released its schedule for the upcoming 2022 season on Tuesday. The 16-game gauntlet has the Terps going toe to toe against some new nonconference opponents and facing off against some familiar Big Ten foes over a two-month span.
The Terps start off the season at Ludwig Field against New Hampshire — which finished as the No. 9 ranked team in the country at the end of last season — on Aug. 25. Maryland plays its next two games at home as well against Liberty on Aug. 28 and Denver on Sept. 2.
On Sept. 5, the Terps will play Virginia at Audi Field in the annual “Battle of the DMV.” The Cavaliers will look for revenge after the Terps took last year’s matchup, 2-1. That game is followed by another rivalry game away from home against Georgetown before conference play begins at Michigan on Sept. 16.
Then, the Terps begin another three-game stretch at home, facing Penn State on Sept. 20, Ohio State on Sept. 25 and Old Dominion on Sept 30.
The month of October starts in Piscataway, New Jersey with a game against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights on Oct. 4 before Maryland heads to Evanston, Illinois to take on Northwestern on Oct. 9.
Heading into the final stretch of the schedule, the Terps run up against Wisconsin on Oct. 14, High Point on Oct. 17, Michigan State on Oct. 21 and Delaware on October 25th — all in College Park. But, the season ends away from home, as the Terps travel to Bloomington to take on Indiana on Oct. 30 for the final game of the regular season.
Maryland will look to repeat the success they had last season after finishing as the No. 7 ranked team in the nation with a 12-4-2 record, and second in the Big Ten.
“Our team will be fully prepared to entertain our fans and compete against the best,” head coach Sasho Cirovski said in a release. “We cannot wait for opening night at Ludwig and the rest of what will be a fantastic year.”
