Kansas State soccer’s public scrimmage against Arkansas is no more.
With the ongoing construction at Buser Family Park, K-State Athletics announced Tuesday that the scrimmage, originally scheduled for Aug. 9, is canceled. The Wildcats instead will host the Razorbacks for a closed practice.
K-State is set to embark on its fourth season in program history — all under the guidance of head coach Mike Dibbini — in 2019. The Wildcats start practice Aug. 6. Buser Family Park will officially open at 7 p.m. Aug. 29, with K-State hosting Arkansas State.
The Wildcats return 17 letterwinners, including eight starters from the 2018 season. Among those 17 letterwinners, K-State brings back nine of the 13 players who recorded at least one point last year. The Wildcats added 10 newcomers and two redshirts to the rotation for the upcoming season.
K-State will play nine home matches, including four matches in Big 12 play, at the new Buser Family Park this fall.
