The 2020-21 NJCAA Division I and Division II Men’s Soccer Championship is set to be held in Wichita from June 5-10. Twelve teams in each division – 24 teams total from around the country – are set to take the field at the Stryker Sports Complex over five days of competition. From Arizona to Maryland, 16 different states are represented by the teams competing, including Kansas’ own Barton Community College – the only team from Kansas in the championship.
The first three days of the event will consist of pool play matchups. Each division’s tournament is comprised of four three-team pods. After a round-robin style format, the team in each pod with the highest number of win-points will advance to the semifinal round on Wednesday, June 9. The Division II championship final is slated for 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 10, with the Division I final following at 7 p.m.
Fans can purchase tickets to attend the event by going to www.visitwichita.com/get-tickets. Single-day passes are available to purchase for $12 per person and full tournament passes are available to purchase for $50 per person. All passes will cover admission to watch both Division I and Division II games during the championship.
Games will be played on the championship field and field three at Stryker from Saturday, June 5, through Monday, June 7.
The 2020-21 national tournament will mark the inaugural season for NJCAA Division II Men’s Soccer. In January 2019, the NJCAA Board of Regents approved the move to the three-division structure for men’s and women’s soccer in the association. Men's soccer previously added Division III competition in 1994.
All games during the 2020-21 NJCAA Division I and Division II Men’s Soccer Championships will be streamed live on the NJCAA Network, the association’s home for digital content. Viewers unable to attend matches at Stryker can purchase the games on a pay-per-view basis for $10 for a day pass, $25 for a tournament pass or $75 for an all-season pass.
