  • Soccer Stadium/Menís Soccer???

    If you haven’t heard, SDSU is fundraising to build a brand new soccer stadium on campus directly to the East of DJDS. It’s will be a fully turf complex. It made me wonder, if SDSU is going to invest so much into a soccer stadium, how much more would it cost to start a men’s soccer program to utilize it too? The Summit League currently has 7 men’s soccer programs: Oral Roberts, Denver, Omaha, Kansas City, Western Illinois, St. Thomas, and associate member Eastern Illinois. Soccer is a growing sport in the US and South Dakota and maybe it would be a good move to get out in front and be a leader in the sport for the state and see what happens. I haven’t heard any rumors of such, just thinking out loud!

    If you add men's soccer, you will likely have to either drop another men's sport or add another women's sport. Recall that the reason that equestrian is offered by SDSU is to offset the added football scholarships of the move to D-I with women's sport scholarships.

          They had to cut the tennis programs when they are not a big hit on the budget so doubt soccer would get the funds either.
