Maryland men’s soccer released its 2023 schedule Wednesday, with nine opponents that made last year’s NCAA Tournament on the slate.
“Once again we have put together a challenging and exciting schedule for our players and fans,” head coach Sasho Cirovski said in a release.
The season is set to kick off on Aug. 24 against Missouri State, and continue against UNC Greensboro on Aug. 27.
The Terps will then take on a pair of former ACC rivals. They’ll face off against Wake Forest on Sep. 1 before traveling to take on Virginia three days later.
Five of the Terps’s first six games are at home
Maryland will finish off its initial nonconference slate against Georgetown on Sep. 8. It’ll play Bowling Green, Villanova and Navy later in the season.
As for conference play, the Terps will face Michigan, Penn State, Wisconsin, Northwestern, Rutgers, Michigan State, Indiana and Ohio State. The entire schedule can be found here.
After being knocked out in the second round of the NCAA Tournament last season, Cirovski hopes that the upcoming schedule can help propel the Terps to their fifth national championship.
“Our goal each season is to be the last team smiling, and to do that you have to play the best competition throughout the year,” Cirovski added. “I can’t wait to see our players once again perform at Ludwig on big nights in front of our fantastic fans, including The Crew. See you in August.”
