Maryland women’s hoops: Ranking, schedule, schedule preview
Posted On August 4, 2021
Maryland’s women’s soccer program is still searching for its first NCAA Tournament berth, and a new program that may be ready for the next stage is in the works.
Maryland’s soccer team is on the cusp of its first appearance in a College Cup game since 2005.
The Terrapins are set to take on the Boston Breakers in a friendly on Saturday at the Thomas & Mack Center in Maryland.
In the preseason, Maryland’s program ranked in the top 10 for most expected to qualify for NCAA Tournament.
Maryland was the No. 3 seed in the tournament in 2015 and 2016.
Marylanders players, coaches and administrators, along with the men’s and women’s teams, have been discussing the possibility of expanding the program in recent weeks.
The team is still waiting on a final decision from the NCAA on its future.
Maryland has a $25 million television contract with Fox Sports and is also in talks with a new television partner.
The school said last week that it has a commitment from Fox Sports to bring more college soccer games to Maryland, but it did not disclose how many games it is working on.
The program is trying to fill some of the gaps in the schedule by scheduling matches against non-conference opponents.
It also has a potential new venue in 2018, with a potential home field of The Stadium at Maryland.
The university is still in the process of finding a new home for the soccer facility.
The women’s team also is trying out a new stadium, and is working to make the stadium accessible to women.
It will be called the Maryland Soccer Stadium, which is also being built for soccer in Baltimore.
Marylands men’s team will play a game at the Maryland SoccerPlex on Friday, Nov. 1, against North Carolina A&C Soccer.
The Terrapin Women will host the Richmond Kickers on Saturday, Nov: 4, at the Walter Payton Sports Complex.
The 2017 NCAA Tournament will be held at The Citrus Bowl in Gainesville, Florida.
