USF women’s soccer released their schedule for the 2021 season Friday. The Bulls will take the pitch for the first time in over a year after their season got moved to the spring semester due to COVID-19.
Coach Denise Schilte-Brown said the team is eager to get back on the field after a long offseason.
“We’re excited to have the opportunity to play our season in the spring,” Schilte-Brown said. “The team has worked so hard and persevered through the fall and I’m so proud of the effort they’ve put in this year. We’re ready to play a competitive schedule this spring and continue our streak of conference championships.”
This season will consist of eight conference games and two nonconference matches in the regular season, the Bulls will also have an additional exhibition game. USF will meet every opponent once and all matches are currently scheduled to take place on weekends.
After a Jan. 30 exhibition match against FGCU, the reigning AAC champions will kick off their regular season against Florida Atlantic on Feb. 7. The Bulls will begin conference play a week later Feb. 14 with a road game against SMU.
All of USF’s home matches this year will be livestreamed on ESPN+. Fan attendance policies have yet to be announced.
