UPEI Athletics and Recreation is excited to announce the 2017 Mulligan Cup schedule and invites the community to come out and enjoy ‘the beautiful game’, September 1-3 at the UPEI Turf Field.

The Mulligan Cup provides an excellent opportunity for coaches to make final roster decisions. This sixth annual cup honours Vince Mulligan, the ageless varsity UPEI soccer and hockey coach throughout the 80s and 90s. It is a great way to kick off the season and showcase the UPEI men’s and women’s soccer teams to their supporters.

“Mulligan Cup is a great pre season tradition for us,” said Lewis Page, coach of UPEI Men’s Soccer. “It allows us to honour a UPEI legend in Vince Mulligan and provides three crucial games to help us prepare for the start of the season.”

“Mulligan Cup is an exciting opportunity to showcase our new recruits and get the chance to see how the squad has progressed from the previous season,” said Graeme McDonald, coach of UPEI Women’s Soccer. “It's also a special time as we continue to show our appreciation to Vince Mulligan.”

The AUS league openers for both UPEI soccer teams will take place at home on September 9, when the men's and women’s teams take on St. FX.

The full schedule for the Mulligan Cup can be found at gopanthersgo.ca.
