Kickoff is slated for 6 p.m. Information regarding tickets and fan attendance will be announced at a later date.
“We are excited for the opportunity to play at GEODIS Park. Vanderbilt is always a strong team so I expect a tough game as well,” says MTSU Soccer head coach Aston Rhoden. “This will certainly be a wonderful experience for our players and fans,”
Vanderbilt will be the designated home team for the match. In 2021, the Blue Raiders defeated the Commodores 2-1, which was the last time the sides met in Nashville.
The Blue Raiders open exhibition play this year Aug. 8 against Southern Indiana and will commence the regular season at home Aug. 17 vs. Louisiana.
Four of last season’s seniors return as grad students in 2023, including D Caroline Manley, G Hannah Suder, F Cambell Kivisto and F Elizabeth Slavinsky. 12 newcomers also join the MTSU roster, including two transfers and a freshman class of 10.
