The game was postponed due to the conditions at Ambrose Urbanic Field
The Pitt men’s soccer team was scheduled to open its spring season against Akron at Ambrose Urbanic Field on Sunday afternoon. However, the game has been postponed due to “unplayable field conditions,” according to an announcement from the school.
The game was originally scheduled for Saturday at 3 p.m. ET, but due to the potential for inclement weather, the matchup was pushed back to Sunday at the same time. Now, with the Pitt-Akron game postponed and no makeup date currently set, the next game on Pitt’s schedule is its City Game matchup with Duquesne on Feb. 27 at 7 p.m. ET.
This is the second game on Pitt’s spring schedule that has been altered, as the team saw an exhibition match set for Feb. 13 with Georgetown canceled over positive COVID-19 tests within the Georgetown program.
The Panthers went 7-1 during the fall season and earned a No. 1 national ranking for the first time in program history. The team is still considered one of the best in the nation, despite a 2-1 loss to Clemson in the ACC title game, and could reach new heights once it takes the field this spring.
