DURHAM, N.H. — The University of New Hampshire men's soccer team announced its schedule for the upcoming 2010 season Monday afternoon.

After playing a trio of exhibition matchups against St. Francis Xavier, Rhode Island and Brown, the Wildcats kick off the regular season by hosting the 21st annual UNH Nike Fall Soccer Classic on Sept. 4 and 6 at Bremner Field. In that span the 'Cats face off against the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (Sept. 4) before finishing off the tournament with a matchup against Central Connecticut University (Sept. 6).

The Wildcats follow up the tournament when they hit the road for the University of Vermont's Smith Barney Classic to take on Cornell (Sept. 10) and Presbyterian (Sept. 12).

New Hampshire plays three of its next four games in Durham with matchups against Iona (Sept. 18), Bryant (Sept. 22) and Fairfield (Sept. 28). UNH's lone road contest during that stretch is against UMass (Sept. 25) at Rudd Field in a non-conference rematch from last season when the two squads finished with a 0-0 tie in double-overtime at the Smith Barney Nike Soccer Classic on Sept. 11.

The 'Cats kick off the month of October with another trip to Vermont for their conference opener against the Catamounts (Oct. 2) at Centennial Field. The team stays on the road for another non-conference matchup, as they take on Michigan State (Oct. 6) before heading back to Durham for a rematch of last year's semifinal round of the America East tournament against the University of Maryland Baltimore County (Oct. 9) at Bremner Field.

UNH continues its season with a string of three straight night tilts on the road against Stony Brook (Oct. 13), Hartford (Oct. 16) and Holy Cross (Oct. 20). New Hampshire heads back home for a pair of conference matchups against Boston University (Oct. 23) and Albany (Oct. 27), before rounding out the regular season with a pair of evening road contests against Binghamton (Oct. 30) and intrastate rival Dartmouth (Nov. 2).
