UCSB Soccer to Host Hispanic Heritage Night This Sunday

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – As part of the recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month, UCSB Athletics is proud to present Hispanic Heritage Night, which will take place this Sunday at the men's soccer matchup against Loyola Marymount University.

The special night will feature a pregame ceremony with Roger Aceves, the mayor of Goleta, as well as commemorative posters for fans, Spanish music during the game, a mariachi band outside the stadium before kickoff, and participation from Hispanic fraternities, sororities, and local business partners.

The final nonconference game of the men's soccer schedule, the contest against the Lions is set to start at 6:00 p.m., an hour later than originally scheduled.

As part of the Gauchos Give outreach program, businesses and organizations from the community slated to attend the game include Casa de la Raza, Boys and Girls Club of Santa Barbara, Radio Bronco, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, El Zarape, Cuernavaca, Rose Cafe, and many more.

Additionally, the mens soccer program paid its annual visit to Adelante School.
