Louisiana Tech head coach Steve Voltz announced on Friday the 2022 soccer schedule, a slate consisting of 18 matches.
LA Tech will play eight games during the non-conference followed by 10 Conference USA matches, marking the program’s 10th season in the league. There will be an even split of home and away games with nine apiece.
“Our 2022 schedule will not only challenge us every week, it will provide our program with the opportunity to compete against some of the best programs in our region,” said Voltz. “The non-conference portion will most certainly help prepare us for a very tough conference slate.”
To help prepare for the season, the team will play two road exhibitions versus ULM and East Texas Baptist before the season officially kicks off on Aug. 18 against Murray State at Robert Mack Caruthers Field.
It will be the first of four straight matches at “The Mack” as LA Tech will also host Northwestern State (Aug. 21), Abilene Christian (Aug. 26) and UL-Lafayette (Aug. 28).
The remaining non-conference schedule will take place on the road as the team ventures into the SEC to play at Ole Miss on Sept. 1 and at Mississippi State on Sept. 4. Those are followed by road contests at Sam Houston on Sept. 6 and at Little Rock on Sept. 9 in home-and-home return games.
C-USA action gets underway on Sept. 15 at home against WKU, followed up by long trips to face UTEP and Charlotte.
The squad will then host three straight league games, facing Rice, FIU and UTSA in Ruston. Next up is another two-game road swing at Middle Tennessee and Florida Atlantic.
LA Tech will return home on Oct. 23 to face UAB in the home finale. The regular season then concludes on Oct. 29 at North Texas.
The C-USA Tournament will take place Oct. 31-Nov. 6 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Season tickets for the 2022 LA Tech soccer season will go on sale soon.
