Elon Releases 2022 Men's Soccer Schedule

ELON, NC – The Elon University men’s soccer team and head coach Marc Reeves unveiled its exciting 2022 fall slate on Wednesday, June 22. Highlights of the 2022 ledger include three matches versus opponents from the 2021 NCAA Tournament field with two of those three contests coming on the Phoenix’s home pitch at Rudd Field.

“We have put together a challenging schedule that includes some great non-conference teams coming to Rudd field this fall,” said Reeves. “The (Colonial Athletic Association) added two more strong programs and it will again be an incredibly tough conference. With the elimination of overtime in the regular season every game will be a tight battle in search of max points both at home and on the road We expect our team to have a strong mentality to prepare to perform at our best in all nine matches, knowing the margins of success are tight and the difference can often be in the smallest of details.”

The fall slate begins with three exhibitions versus Campbell (Aug. 14), at Gardner-Webb (Aug. 16) and versus ETSU (Aug. 21) before officially opening the 2022 regular season at a tournament at Duke University. Elon will square off against Milwaukee (Aug. 26) and San Diego (Aug. 28) at Koskinen Stadium.

The squad returns for a two-game homestand to kick off the month of September and Colonial Athletic Association play versus Northeastern on Saturday, Sept. 3. The following week, the Phoenix hosts league newcomer Stony Brook at Rudd Field on Sept. 10.

Elon treks to Furman for its first true road contest of the season on Wednesday, Sept. 14. The Phoenix continues its venture on the road, traveling to Delaware for a matchup versus the Blue Hens on Saturday, Sept. 17.

The Phoenix returns home to host the first of its three 2021 NCAA opponents on its schedule in Duke on Tuesday, Sept. 20. Elon then heads to New Jersey to face CAA newcomer Monmouth on Saturday, Sept. 24.

A four-game homestand begins with a matchup versus Piedmont Triad rival High Point on Wednesday, Sept. 28 followed by a meeting with Drexel on Saturday, Oct. 1. The Phoenix will then welcome its second 2021 NCAA opponent and ACC foe North Carolina to Rudd Field on Tuesday, Oct. 4. This is the first regular season meeting between the Phoenix and the Tar Heels on the soccer pitch since 2009.

A matchup against William & Mary on Saturday, Oct. 8, closes out the four-game homestand before Elon makes a trip the New York to face defending CAA champion Hofstra on Saturday, Oct. 15 in a rematch of last year’s CAA championship final.

Elon heads down I-40 for a road contest at UNCG (Oct. 18) before closing out its regular season home slate versus College of Charleston (Oct. 22) and Radford (Oct. 26). The Phoenix caps the regular season on the road at UNCW on Saturday, Oct. 29.

The 2022 CAA Men’s Soccer Championships begins on Nov. 4 and Nov. 6 with first-round and semifinal games at the sites of the top two seeds in the six-team tournament. The championship game will be played on Nov. 12 at the highest remaining seed.

Coming off its first trip to the CAA championship final in 2021, the Phoenix returns 21 players and seven starters in 2022 including All-CAA performers Kasper Lehm and Jannik Videbaek. The maroon and gold also welcomes back a pair of CAA All-Rookie team players in Calle Edelstam and Scott Vatne.
