Men's Soccer Finalize 2006 Slate
Liberty head coach Jeff Alder has announced the completion of a 16-game schedule featuring seven home contests and non-conference matches with 2005 nationally-ranked Virginia, North Carolina and North Carolina State. 
 
In addition, the 16-game slate has the Flames playing nine road contests, seven Big South Conference matches and nine non-conference matches. The schedule also features contests with four NCAA Men's College Cup participants.

Highlighting the non-conference schedule is a visit by the North Carolina Tar Heels to Liberty Soccer Field on Saturday afternoon, September 9. Last season, the Tar Heels advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA College Cup.

Besides the match with North Carolina, the Flames will host non-conference opponents Gardner Webb, in the first home contest on Friday, September 1, Southern Virginia and Campbell along with Big South Conference opponents Coastal Carolina, the defending conference champion, UNC Asheville and High Point.
 
The Flames will open the 2006 season on the road at Longwood on Tuesday evening, August 29, before returning home for their first match at Liberty Soccer Field. The road schedule features non-conference contests at Virginia and North Carolina State  among the eight road matches. The Flames will also square off with Radford, VMI, Winthrop and Birmingham-Southern in away contests in Big South Conference play.
 
Liberty will return to Radford at the end of the season for the 2006 Big South Championship. The tournament is scheduled for November 2-5.
