Binghamton men's soccer game vs. Vermont on Oct. 18 to be televised by Time Warner Sports

VESTAL, N.Y.--The Binghamton Athletic Department has announced that the men's soccer team's game against Vermont on Oct. 18 will be televised by Time Warner Sports. Starting at 7 p.m. at the Bearcats Sports Complex, the game will be a rematch of the past two America East Conference championship games.

"We are excited to have our first televised men's soccer game at the Bearcats Sports Complex," head coach Paul Marco said. "It's great to have it on homecoming weekend against a very good opponent like Vermont."

Two years ago, the Bearcats won the America East title with a 1-0 win over Vermont in the finals. In 2007, however, Vermont got even with a 1-0 triumph in the title game.

Binghamton's game against Vermont will take place during Homecoming Weekend, which has historically drawn some of the biggest crowds of the year. Last season, a Homecoming crowd of 1,782 fans watched the Bearcats defeat Boston 2-1 in overtime on Oct. 6.

With Time Warner Sports as the television carrier, the Binghamton-Vermont game will be made available to more than one million households throughout central and northern New York. More details of the broadcast will be made available at a later date.

NOTE: While the men's soccer team will make its first-ever home television appearance, the women's team will have its Oct. 9 game against Boston at the Bearcats Sports Complex carried live on the FOX Soccer Channel. The game will start at 8 p.m. It will also mark the first-ever home television appearance for the women's team.
