College Soccer is slightly different from the ‘normal’ soccer that you are used to in your own country: both in organization and in atmosphere. The biggest difference is that you don’t play for a club, but for your university.
On average, a team consists of 20-25 players who compete against other universities in the same competition (conference). The ultimate goal? Qualifying for the national tournament of the year. During this tournament, the 48 best college teams in the country compete for the title.
College Soccer matches last just as usual for 90 minutes, divided into two halves of 45 minutes. Yet there is a difference: instead of adding up to 90 minutes, College Soccer counts from 90-0. This makes it possible to constantly change players during the second half. This ensures that the pace remains extremely high and it is a physically tough battle.
