The Cavalier men's soccer team returns 18 letterwinners, including 10 starters, from last year's team that went 10-7-4 and reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament. This year's home schedule begins Aug. 30 with a visit from future ACC member Louisville, a 2012 NCAA quarterfinalist.

The Cavaliers' 13-game home schedule begins on Aug. 23 with the inaugural Klöckner Classic as Virginia hosts VCU and reigning NCAA Champion North Carolina plays Santa Clara.
