The Memphis Tigers and the Memphis Blues will meet on Saturday, October 22 in a developmental match for their new and developing players.
The opportunity presented itself when Georgia Southern forfeited their conference match this weekend due to injuries and weak numbers. The Tigers will face Georgia Southern in the spring.
The Tigers are excited with the number of players we have on in our club at present and are glad the Blues will provide this opportunity for us to grow our game and advance our skills.
The side will be set at the match.
Kickoff at 1:00
All matches are at 1:00 pm unless otherwise noted. Home games are played at Memorial Field on the campus of University of Memphis. You can find Memorial Field by following your GPS to 451 Zach Curlin Street Memphis, Tennessee. You cannot see the field from the street because the field is 25 feet above street level. You can see the goalposts sticking up through the trees. Park across the street and walk up to the field. Bring a lawn chair and sit on the track. There are no bleachers. We have water and restroom facilities available.
