Gauchos to Host China's U-17 Women's World Cup Team in Exhibition Sunday

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - The UC Santa Barbara women's soccer team will host the Chinese U-17 World Cup Team in an exhibition game on Sunday, Mar. 2 at 7:00 p.m. on Meredith Field at Harder Stadium.

"This is an outstanding opportunity for our team and our community," said Gauchos' head coach Paul Stumpf. "You don't often get the chance to play a team of this caliber in your non-traditional season and we just couldn't pass up the opportunity.

While the game is slated to be contested at Harder Stadium, depending on the amount of rain that the Santa Barbara area experiences over the next few days, it's possible that it could be moved to Robertson Gymnasium Field 4, which is adjacent to the Recreation Center on campus. All Rob Gym fields have artificial turf.

Admission to the game is free to all, whether at Harder Stadium or Rob Gym Field 4.
