Notre Dame was presupposed to open the 2020 school soccer season in Dublin, Eire however these plans had been scrapped because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This 12 months it was to be Illinois and Nebraska kicking off the faculty soccer season in Dublin however the pandemic canceled that sport as nicely.
Now although we all know that 2022 will see the faculty soccer season begin in Aviva Stadium in Dublin as Nebraska will tackle a staff from Illinois, simply not the Combating Illini.
As an alternative, it is going to be the Northwestern Wildcats who journey overseas to tackle the Cornhuskers on August 27, 2022, a part of school soccer’s Week Zero that season.
Northwestern has by no means performed a sport exterior of the US.
On a private degree I’m not large on school soccer video games being performed in non-college soccer venues however seeing Notre Dame there in 2012 was probably the most distinctive sporting occasions I’ve ever attended and you may wager I’ll be attempting to speak my Northwestern graduate spouse into taking the journey subsequent August.
