Louisville City to visit UK, U of L, IU for pre-season matches

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – As Louisville City looks to get a full roster in place for the team's inaugural season kick-off on March 28, the squad will take on several regional colleges in the pre-season.

On Wednesday, the team released their pre-season schedule – which includes games against Indiana University on March 3, the University of Louisville on March 8 and the University of Kentucky on March 14.

“After more than a week of training it will be nice to face an opponent other than ourselves,” head coach James O'Connor said. “It will be a great test for us and give us a chance to see how our guys play in a live-game situation against programs that have a tradition of winning. They'll each provide us with a strong test that is sure to prepare us for the regular season.”

The team will kick off the pre-season against the University of Evansville on February 25 at 7:45 p.m. at Assumption High School's soccer field on Champions Trace Lane.

The following Sunday, the team will face off against Division II Young Harris College at the Woehrle Athletic Complex in southern Indiana.

The team will then travel to IU, UK and U of L for those matchups, before returning to Assumption's soccer field for the last game of the pre-season against Lindsey Wilson College.

The full schedule is available online at www.LousivilleCityFC.com/schedule.

Single-game tickets for the regular season games are now on sale.
