Deacs open up at Home with Wofford
Wake Forest will open up the 2012 regular season by hosting Wofford on Saturday night at 7 p.m. at Spry Stadium.
For all 2012 men's and women's soccer games the following parking lots will be available on game days: A, B, R2, Q, W1 and W2. Fans are encouraged to park in lots A, B, W1 and W2, especially for all weekday games. When parking in lots A and B, fans are encouraged to use the Polo Road entrance to Spry Stadium for easy access to the stands.
