Another successful Fan Fest

Aug 16, 2013

MILWAUKEEIt was a beautiful evening at Valley Fields on Friday as the men's and women's socc- er teams celebrated Fan Fest with the local Milwaukee community.

The beautiful summer evening served as a backdrop for the event as the Golden Eagles hosted interactive soccer stations, signed autographs and mingled with dedicated Marquette Soccer fans, young and old. Everyone in attendance was treated to free Qdoba and a variety of fun activities.

It was a special night at the Valley as both squads christened the newly renovated playing field with a ceremonial kick-off. The women's team played a short scrimmage before the men played its annual Blue vs. Gold scrimmage.

The men will be back in action on Saturday, Aug. 17 hosting an exhibition against Wright State beginning at 6:05 p.m. CT. The women's squad opens the 2013 season at Portland on Friday, Aug. 23 at 9 p.m. CT.
