UNLV and New Mexico will be facing each other in men’s soccer for the first time since the two were rivals in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation back in the 2012 season when the teams face off Friday night in Albuquerque, New Mexico in a 6 pm (PT) contest. The 17th-ranked Rebels come in at 1-1 thanks to their 3-2 last-second double-overtime win at then No. 15 Portland in the season opener. The Lobos meanwhile started the year ranked in the top 20, but dropped a pair of one-goal games, both on the road.
A live video stream of the contest will be shown on the Mountain West Network, which can be accessed at UNLVRebels.com.
The Rebels will then return home to host Pacific in their home opener Friday, Sept. 8. The annual Alumni game is also set for that date as well, starting at 4:00 pm. It’s also a RED OUT night for the Rebels. There will be free t-shirts for the first 125 fans, while UNLV Faculty/Staff will receive four free tickets each and a free BBQ sandwich. Prior to the contest, from 5-6:30 pm, the UNLV Soccer Foundation will hold a free tailgate party, with free food, drinks and music. Admission is free to all ticketed fans.
Season tickets are on sale now and are just $35 for adults, $25 for UNLV faculty/staff and seniors. Single game ticket prices this season are $8 for adults, $6 for faculty/staff and seniors, though a special internet price of $5 is available for all tickets bought online at UNLVTickets.com, good up to three hours before game time. Kids 12 and under are always free at UNLV men’s soccer contests.
