Coming off an historic College Cup appearance in 2023, the WVU soccer team is now being rewarded with an opportunity to test themselves against professionals.

The Mountaineers will play the Pittsburgh Riverhounds Soccer Club on Feb. 18. This match will be one of the USL club’s five preseason contests.

Dan Stratford will be able to lead his group of national contenders against a professional team and in a professional stadium. This exhibition match will take place at 2 pm from Highmark Stadium in Pittsburgh.

WVU Soccer is one of two college programs on the Riverhounds’ preseason schedule. They will also take on West Virginia’s Backyard Brawl rival Pitt the following week.

This isn’t the first match between West Virginia and the Riverhounds SC. They also met in the 2022 preseason. The Riverhounds blanked WVU in that match two years ago by the score of 4-0.
