The University of Denver women’s soccer team will open the 2011 season on Aug. 19, when the Pioneers host the first two games of the Inaugural Colorado Cup at CIBER Field at the University of Denver Soccer Stadium.

In addition to DU, the showcase features Colorado, Colorado College and Northern Colorado.

“The Colorado Cup offers us a chance to have four NCAA Division I teams from this state showcase and celebrate the great level of soccer talent we have in Colorado,” head coach Jeff Hooker said. “All four schools are filled with players that grew up in the Colorado Youth Soccer Association, including 16 of 26 Pioneers. All of us look forward to making this a premiere tournament that young players across Colorado will aspire to participate in.”

In the first day of competition, CU will take on CC at 4:30 p.m. before the Pioneers battle UNC at 7 p.m. The Colorado Cup moves to Prentup Field in Boulder on Aug. 21, when DU meets Colorado College at 12:30 p.m., and the Buffs host UNC at 3 p.m.

The Cup is a traveling trophy, which the winner will keep until the following season. The 2012 Colorado Cup is slated to be played in Greeley and Colorado Springs. Each of the four programs will hold a clinic at their respective home fields for youth to attend on Saturday, Aug. 20. Exact times and further details for all camps are to be determined.

By purchasing season tickets, fans will enjoy the same centerfield seat, including a comfortable seatback for all 18 home games. Season tickets can be purchased online at DenverPioneers.com
