St. John’s, UNC, Penn State and Rutgers Included in 2015 Sky Blue FC Preview Series Presented by Meridian Health
Sky Blue FC of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) officially announced today its 2015 Sky Blue FC Preview Series Presented by Meridian Health, with the team playing four preseason matches in preparation for the upcoming NWSL campaign. Opponents included in the series are St. John’s University, Penn State University, University of North Carolina and Rutgers University.
“We are fortunate in that our location allows us to play against some top teams in the preseason,” said Jim Gabarra, Sky Blue FC technical director and head coach. “We continue to have annual matches with Penn State and North Carolina. To also add two top local teams in St. John’s and Rutgers creates a really good preseason for us. We only have a short period of time to get ready for our regular season, and having these opponents in our local market helps to build the overall excitement for the upcoming year.”
The first game of the 2015 Sky Blue FC Preview Series Presented by Meridian Health will be against St. John’s University on March 14th at Wexler Field, which is located on the campus of Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School in Scotch Plains, New Jersey.
