Excitement for the 40th season of Louisville men’s soccer continues to build after the Cardinals advanced to the quarterfinal round of the NCAA Championship for the fifth time in the last eight seasons in 2017. Under the guidance of head coach Ken Lolla, who is in his 13th season at the helm at UofL, the Cardinals enter their fifth season in the Atlantic Coast Conference paced by the return of All-ACC performers Tate Schmitt and Geoffrey Dee.

The 2018 season will also be the fifth campaign for the Cardinals at Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn Stadium, the nation’s premier collegiate soccer venue. Louisville’s 10-match home schedule includes a pair of matches against NCAA qualifiers – Duke (Sept. 9) and Clemson (Oct. 20). UofL will open the 2018 regular season schedule against St. Bonaventure on Friday, Aug. 24 at 7:30 p.m., at Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn Stadium.
