NDSU's soccer schedule includes night contests

FARGO – Nine matches at Dacotah Field, including some under the lights, highlight North Dakota State’s women’s soccer schedule for this fall.

For the first time, the Bison will play all home games on the artificial FieldTurf surface at Dacotah Field – the longtime home of Bison football. With lights in place, the bison will host three matches that begin at 7 p.m. and three more that start at 5 p.m.

“The move to Dacotah Field is a tremendous addition to the NDSU soccer program,” said second-year head coach Mark Cook. “This is a win-win for everyone involved. The addition of night games and having fans closer to the field enhance the experience for both the players and spectators.”

NDSU used to play its home games on the soccer field located at the Schlanser outdoor track facility.
