Binghamton men's soccer to host Boston University on FOX Soccer Channel Oct. 16

NSCAA/FOX Soccer Channel Release

VESTAL, N.Y.-- The Binghamton men's soccer program will play in its first-ever nationally-televised game when it hosts Boston University on Friday, Oct. 16 at the Bearcats Sports Complex. The game, which marks a rematch of last year's conference finals, starts at 8 p.m. and will be televised live on FOX Soccer Channel.

Fox Soccer Channel reaches more than 33 million cable and satellite households in the United States. In the Binghamton area, it is aired on Time Warner Channel 129.

Last season, FOX Soccer Channel carried the Binghamton-Boston women's soccer game (Oct. 9) live from the Bearcats Sports Complex. This year marks the first time in its nine-year Division I history that the Bearcat men's program will take part in a game that will be televised nationally.

"When we found out that FOX Soccer Channel was coming to Binghamton for a second straight year, we were extremely excited," Binghamton head coach Paul Marco said. "It shows the strength of Binghamton University and its commitment to men's and women's soccer."

Binghamton kicks off its season at home against Syracuse on Tuesday, Sept. 1 at 7 p.m. Individual tickets are $5, groups of 20 or more can be admitted at $3 per ticket and Binghamton undergraduate students get in free with their ID. Tickets can be purchased through the Binghamton Athletic Website (www.bubearcats.com) or at the the Events Center box office (777-6004) starting Monday, August 24 at noon.

PLEASE NOTE: Binghamton's Oct. 3 home game against Rhode Island at 7 p.m. will televised regionally by Time Warner Sports. It marks the second consecutive year Time Warner Sports will air a Binghamton men's soccer game. Last season, the Bearcats defeated Vermont 1-0 on Oct. 18.
