Jun 15, 2022

BERKELEY – Cal women's soccer coach Neil McGuire announced the 2022 schedule on Wednesday. The Bears will play a 20-game slate featuring nine home games and nine contests on the Pac-12 Family of Networks.
The Bears return 31 players from last year's young roster that allowed less than a goal per game. With two games cancelled last season, Cal only played 18 contests, but will face 16 of the same opponents again in 2022. Cal's new opponents will be Pepperdine, Cal State Fullerton, UNLV and Penn.
The Bears will play four doubleheaders with the Cal men's soccer program, with those scheduled to take place on August 28, September 18, October 27 and October 30. Cal will also face six opponents who were ranked or receiving votes in the final United Soccer Coaches Top 25 Poll.
"We look forward to testing ourselves against many great opponents this fall," McGuire said. "Knowing the quality of our conference, it is important to make sure we are battle-tested and each team we will face will challenge us in different ways."
The Bears will open the season on Thursday, August 18 on the road against UC Irvine, one of nine non-conference contests before the Bears begin Pac-12 play. Cal will also compete against Saint Mary's (CA) on the road before the home opener on Sunday, August 28. Cal will host UC San Diego at 4 p.m. at Edwards Stadium with the game broadcast on the Pac-12 Network.
