The UA Razorback Women’s Soccer Team

O

Razorback Women's Soccer vs. Oklahoma State August 24, 2014 Fayetteville, Arkansas.

On the heels of the Women’s World Cup this summer, the University of Arkansas women’s soccer team is looking to make their own history this fall. If the last few years are any indication, the 2015 season promises to be an exciting journey fans of all ages can enjoy.

When you enter Razorback Field, you meet an atmosphere like no other in Razorback sports. Fans carry scarves even in August and students set up with drums, ready to cheer on the team international style. As a harvest moon rises over the freshly cut grass, twenty-two players battle it out in front of cheering, thumping, scarf whirling fans. In three years, head coach Colby Hale and his staff have reinvigorated the soccer program with a deliberate nod to the traditions of soccer fans around the world.

This fall, the team returns after its second NCAA tournament appearance in two years. The 2014 season included ten overtime games on the way to a 9-7-6 season overall. Overtime games, though nerve-wracking for players, are thrilling for fans. Games are concluded once a goal is scored, making every minute count as both teams compete for that golden goal.

As Coach Hale begins his fourth year as head coach in 2015, he looks to capitalize on the success the team has built the last few years. “I am really excited about the group we have coming in next year. We have a tremendous home schedule and a team that can score some goals coming back. We set every attendance record out there and season ticket sales are up over 2000%. We’ve worked hard to integrate ourselves into the soccer community and make this a family.”

Fans feel a part of that family as soon as they enter the pitch (field). Season ticket holders receive signature Razorback soccer scarves along with their tickets and fans are encouraged to swing them lasso style and chant throughout the game. The stadium allows families to sit close to the field for the best soccer in the state and many kids crowd the sidelines after the games to catch an autograph from the players.

With most home games on Friday evenings and Sundays, Razorback soccer games are perfect ways to begin or end your weekend. Games typically last 90 minutes, allowing plenty of time to get the kids to bed or celebrate the win! And did I mention kids always attend the games for free?

Razorback soccer has become part of my family’s fall traditions. We eagerly look forward to receiving our season tickets this summer and plan to be in the stands, waving our scarves and cheering on the team this fall. The soccer team will take the field for their first game on Friday, August 21st, 2015. Come join us and make 2015 the best year yet for Razorback soccer!
