Big Ten announces 2017 Soccer Tournament
ROSEMONT, Ill. — The Big Ten Men’s Soccer and Women’s Soccer Tournaments will take place at Grand Park in Westfield, Indiana, as announced by the Big Ten Thursday. The women’s semifinals and championship game are slated for Nov. 3 and 5, while the men’s semifinals and championship game are set for Nov. 10 and 12.
This year’s Big Ten Women’s Soccer Tournament quarterfinal games are slated for Oct. 29 and, as was the case during the past two seasons, the quarterfinals will be played on the campus of the higher-seeded school. Ticket prices, kickoff times and television coverage for all Big Ten Women’s Soccer Tournament games will be announced at a later date.
This will mark the second time since the debut of Big Ten women’s soccer in 1994 that the conference tournament will be played off campus. In 1997, the event was held at the National Sports Center in Blaine, Minnesota, with Michigan defeating Northwestern in the title game, 1-0 in overtime.
Last year, the Big Ten Men’s Soccer Tournament semifinals and championship game were played at the facility for the first time, with Maryland earning a 2-1 victory over Wisconsin in the final.
