PAC to play soccer finals at Highmark Stadium
Highmark Stadium is the 3,500-seat soccer-specific stadium in Station Square and home to the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the United Soccer League.
“The PAC is thrilled to be hosting its 2014 soccer championships at the Pittsburgh Riverhounds’ Highmark Stadium, a state-of-the-art soccer facility that is the crown jewel of the Station Square area,” said PAC commissioner Joe Onderko.
“We see this as a true showcase for PAC soccer, an event that will bring fans together for a great celebration of PAC soccer, and believe the central proximity will allow our fans and membership to attend and create a festival-like atmosphere. We hope providing this conference championship environment will deliver a student-athlete experience that is unequalled in NCAA Division III.”
The title matches are scheduled for Nov. 8. Tentative start times are noon and 3 p.m.
“We are very excited to be bringing the Presidents’ Athletic Conference into the mix and hope that we can provide a great new venue, and experience, for the all of the participating teams and student-athletes,” said Sara Guffey, event manager for Highmark Stadium.Read full post: PAC to play soccer finals at Highmark Stadium
