SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Season tickets for the 2010 UC Santa Barbara men's soccer season are now on sale and this year's packages include tickets for the NCAA College Cup, being hosted by UCSB on Dec. 10-12 at Meredith Field at Harder Stadium.

Season tickets start at just $75 and include one ticket to all home men and women's regular season games and one College Cup All Session ticket. UC Santa Barbara staff and faculty can purchase their season tickets for a reduced rate of $50.

For just $175, a family of five (2 adults, 3 youth) can get tickets for all home men and women's regular season games and two College Cup All Session tickets - that's just $1.25 per game! Everyone who purchases a Family Plan will also get free GKids memberships for all youth eighth grade and under in their household.

For each season ticket purchased prior to the Gaucho men's match against Creighton on Sept. 9, the buyer will receive the exclusive Soccer Heaven scarf - the official Gaucho Soccer scarf for the 2010 season.

The Schedule
The men's soccer 2010 schedule is packed with matches against some of the country's most elite programs. This fall's slate features matches against five teams that advanced to the 2009 NCAA Tournament, including four teams that finished 2009 ranked among the nation's top-25.

UCSB will open its 2010 home schedule on Aug. 28 when it hosts an exhibition match with a Mexican National Team. Last September, the Gauchos hosted the Mexican U-17 National Team and welcomed a spirited crowd of 8,425 to Harder Stadium for the exhibition, which ended with a 2-1 UCSB overtime victory.

Highlights of the home schedule include a match with UCLA on Sept. 24 and a Fox Soccer Channel televised game against Duke on Oct. 15. Creighton, a program that has qualified for 17 of the last 18 NCAA Tournaments, and Davidson, out of the Southern Conference, will be making the trek to Santa Barbara on Sept. 7 and 10, respectively.

The Gauchos will begin their quest to defend their Big West Conference regular season title on Oct. 2 when they host UC Davis in their league opener.

The 2010 season will kick-off with the annual exhibition against cross-town foe Westmont on Aug. 21.
