According to a press release from the University of North Georgia Athletic Department, the UNG women’s soccer program is expected to be nationally recognized as part of the NCAA Division II Showcase. UNG will go up against nationally-ranked Columbus State on October 27. Fans and supporters can watch a national broadcast of the game on NCAA Division II’s Twitter (@NCAADII) and Facebook Live. Kick off time is 6:05pm.
This achievement makes UNG the first school in Division II to host nationally-televised matchups in five sports; UNG previously hosted ESPN3 in 2015 on Make-A-Wish Day with the softball team taking on Georgia College and the baseball team playing host to Anderson.
The Peach Belt Conference, UNG, and Columbus State will also share the game on their Facebook pages. Niles Media Group will produce the broadcast, giving viewers four different angles throughout the UNG Soccer Complex.
The men’s and women’s basketball teams will also host Columbus State on January 9, 2019, with ESPN3 broadcasting the games live from the UNG Convocation Center.
