The Hofstra Men’s Soccer team will face five 2017 NCAA Tournament teams as part of its 2018 schedule that includes 17 games.

Head coach Richard Nuttall’s side will kick off the season in The Buckeye State as the Pride faces Dayton and Ohio State on August 24 and 26 respectively as part of the Bert and Iris Wolstein Classic at Ohio State. Hofstra will then round out its season-opening five-game road trip with matches at Colgate, Syracuse and Seton Hall.

The home side of its schedule will kick off on September 9 when Hofstra welcomes Harvard to Hofstra Soccer Stadium. Three days later, the Pride will head east to face Long Island rivals, Stony Brook.

Colonial Athletic Association conference play begins for Hofstra on October 6 on the road against the Blue Hens of Delaware.

The Pride is looking to build off its 2017 season when the team finished the regular season 6-6-6 and advancing to the finals of the CAA postseason tournament.
