WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Wake Forest head men's soccer coach Bobby Muuss announced the 2017 schedule on Tuesday, featuring 17 regular-season games, including eight against NCAA Tournament teams and 11 at Spry Stadium.
The Demon Deacons will take on five of the other seven teams who qualified for the Elite Eight last year. That includes Final Four participant North Carolina, plus Elite Eight qualifiers Providence, Louisville, Clemson and Virginia Tech.
"We look forward to playing an extremely challenging non-conference and ACC schedule," Muuss said. "We'll be battle tested when it comes time for the postseason. I can't wait to be playing in front of our great home fans 11 times next year."
Playing all night games in 2017, the Deacs open the regular season at home with games against Rutgers (Aug. 25) and Providence (Aug. 27).
After a road trip to Saint Louis (Sept. 2), Wake Forest returns home to play Georgia State (Sept. 5).
ACC play begins against Louisville (Sept. 9). In conference action, the Deacs play host to Pittsburgh (Sept. 16), Clemson (Sept. 29), Virginia Tech (Oct. 14) and Syracuse (Oct. 27), and trips to NC State (Sept. 23), North Carolina (Oct. 6) and Boston College (Oct. 21).
The Sept. 16 game will be part of Wake Forest's Homecoming events, as well as the program's alumni weekend. The Deacs will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the 2007 National Champion squad.
Other non-conference games include Appalachian State (Sept. 12), High Point (Sept. 19), South Carolina (Sept. 26) and Longwood (Oct. 10) at home, and Elon (Oct. 17) on the road.
The Deacs open the year with a pair of exhibition contests, including a trip to Furman on Aug. 13 and a home game against UNC Wilmington on Aug. 19.
Wake Forest is coming off a 19-3-3 season in which the team finished as the national runner-up at the NCAA College Cup.
