CHARLESTON, S.C. - The College of Charleston men's soccer team will put their team on display for the first time this season on Sunday at 7 p.m., when they will host a home exhibition against the UNF Ospreys.

The Cougars come off a 7-8-2 2015 season, their best mark since joining the Colonial Athletic Association in 2013. For the first time in school history, they qualified for the CAA Tournament, and will look to continue the momentum with a 2016 lineup that's chalk-full of talented upperclassmen.

The Ospreys went 10-7-1 last season, which was their highest win-total since 2000 and led to an Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament Championship and an NCAA Tournament berth. UNF and CofC met last season in Jacksonville for another exhibition affair, which ended in a 1-1 tie. Senior Nico Rittmeyer scored the lone Cougar goal in that game, doing so in the 86th minute to stave off defeat.

Men's soccer season tickets are still available at a rate of $40 for adults, $30 for CofC faculty and staff, and $20 for youth (18 and below). All season-ticket purchases are accompanied by a limited edition "The College" scarf.
