UNC Men’s Soccer: 2018 Schedule

The Tar Heels seek to build upon their College Cup semifinal exit last season.

US National Womens Team

Last season, the North Carolina Tar Heels were eliminated from the College Cup during the semifinal round versus Indiana. UNC finished the season 17-4-1, first in the Coastal Division, second overall in the regular season standings, and the last ACC team remaining in the College Cup.

In the past decade, Carolina has the most College Cup appearances (six) and NCAA victories (23) in the nation during that period.

The Tar Heels return their second-leading scorer from last season, forward Jelani Pieters, along with all three goalkeepers who appeared in net in 2017, Alec Smir, Drew Romig, and James Pyle.

Like last season, UNC’s home games will not be in Chapel Hill. Due to the continued renovations and upgrades at Fetzer Field, home games will be at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary and Koskinen Stadium in Durham, Duke’s home soccer field.

Highlighted by an early season rematch against the team that knocked UNC out of the College Cup last year, take a look at Carolina’s 2018 schedule:
