Pitt Women's Soccer Will Appear on Television Five Times in 2013




Aug. 8, 2013

GREENSBORO, N.C.—The University of Pittsburgh women’s soccer team will appear on five nationwide broadcasts this fall as part of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Olympic sports television schedule. Overall, the ACC’s multi rights holders will distribute at least 102 Olympic sports events live, surpassing its previous record of 77 set last year.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for us to showcase our program as we enter into the Atlantic Coast Conference,” Pitt head coach Greg Miller said. “We will be competing against some of the nation’s best teams and it is a chance for us to receive outstanding national exposure.”

The five televised Pitt women’s soccer matches include its ACC opener vs. Boston College on Thursday, Sept. 12, vs. North Carolina State (Sunday, Sept. 15), vs. Virginia (Sunday, Sept. 22) and vs. defending national champion North Carolina (Thursday, Sept. 26). Those matches will be televised live nationally on ESPN3 and locally on Pitt Panthers Television (Channel 188 or 210 on the Comcast Network in Pittsburgh). Pitt’s match at Duke on Sunday, Oct. 27 will be televised regionally in Pittsburgh on Root Sports and nationally on ESPN3.

Pitt began its NCAA mandated practices on Wednesday at Ambrose Urbanic Field at the Petersen Sports Complex. Pitt begins its competition schedule with an exhibition game at Kentucky on Friday, August 16.

Pitt opens its regular season at Duquesne on Sunday, Aug. 25 and opens its home schedule against Bucknell on Friday, Aug. 30. Pitt’s first Atlantic Coast Conference game will be against Boston College on Thursday, Sept. 12. Pitt’s 2013 women’s soccer schedule also includes nine home games at Ambrose Urbanic Field and 11 matches which will be played in the Pittsburgh area.
