SOCCER EUROPE BLOG - “And we’re off!”

MARQUETTE, Mich. – The Northern Michigan University soccer team began a two-week preseason trip to Europe today (Aug. 13). The Wildcats will play four games in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany on their trip.

Members of the team will be posting to daily about their activities for the day. Here is the team ready to board the plane and cross the Atlantic Ocean.

"We're really excited to be going on this trip," NMU soccer coach Matt Granstrand said. "Some of our players have never been to Europe. It will be a great experience and a fun kickoff to the season. We're going to experience the culture, play lots of soccer and bond as a team."
