Soccer, or "European baseball," has its roots in the mid-19th century, when podiatrists looking to drum up business introduced the concept of kicking iron weights into rubber nets. Enjoy the modern version of the foot-fueled activity with today's Groupon: for $3, you get admission to a VCU Rams men's soccer game (up to a $7 value). Games take place at Sports Backers Stadium. Tickets are for general-admission seating; choose from the following games:

  • vs. Florida Gulf Coast University on Saturday, September 4, at 7:30 p.m.
  • vs. Old Dominion University on Wednesday, October 6, at 7 p.m.
  • vs. Hofstra University on Saturday, October 9, at 7 p.m.
  • vs. University of North Carolina on Tuesday, October 26, at 7 p.m.

Witness Virginia Commonwealth University’s men's soccer team enter a new era under the leadership of first-year head coach Dave Giffard, who was an assistant coach for last year's 23-1-1 University of Akron squad. Along with Giffard, the team welcomes 18 newcomers, including highly touted international talent such as Romena Bowie and Jason Johnson from Jamaica and Jose Carlos Castillo from Guatemala. The Rams' roster of feet-jugglers also features several locally produced players, such as Richmond's Chase Farnsworth and Midlothian's Peter Lee and Nate Shiffman, allowing spectators to shout out regional inside jokes to confuse not-from-the-area opponents.

Soccer, the world’s most popular sport, is so significant because of its poetic simplicity: no hoops, pads, sticks, or T-shirt guns that blast out shaving cream. Additionally, no other sport combines the acrobatics of Cirque du Soleil with the raw physicality of golf. Cheer on the Rams as they rampage toward victory over a net's worth of soccer squads.

VCU Rams Athletics

In 2011, the VCU Rams athletics program emerged under the national spotlight's brightest bulbs when the men's basketball team advanced to the NCAA Final Four as an 11-seed. But while their Cinderella story may have made VCU a household name and bedtime story for sports-loving children, it is hardly the only instance of Rams' athletic success. Their men's baseball team went 38-19 last season and advanced to a NCAA Super Regional in 2015. Members of the Atlantic 10 Conference since 2012, the Rams don their black-and-gold uniforms to proudly represent their university at a number of fan-friendly facilities.
