ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - With the 2010 UCF volleyball season just around the corner, season tickets are now available for purchase for only $30 online at UCFAthletics.com or by calling the UCF Athletics Ticket Office at (407) UCF-1000.
The Knights are set to host 13 regular-season matches at The Venue at UCF this season, which includes 10 Conference USA contests.
The Black and Gold opens play at home when it hosts Florida Atlantic in its first match of the Radisson-UCF Classic on Sept. 10. Later that evening the Knights will square-off with Baylor, who looks to be the squad's toughest opponent of the year, before concluding its home event Sept. 11 with a contest against in-state rival Jacksonville.
UCF is set to host its first C-USA match Oct. 3 against 2009 NCAA-participant Rice, before welcoming East Carolina to The Venue for a two-match home series Oct. 9-10. The match against the Pirates on Oct. 10 will serve as the Knights' annual VolleyBowl match, in which the squad will attempt to break the program attendance record for the third-straight season. In 2009, VolleyBowl II saw a program-record 1,603 fans cheer on the Black and Gold as it battled in-state rival USF.
Also making the trip to the Sunshine State in league play will be UAB (Oct. 22), Memphis (Oct. 24), Tulane (Nov. 5), Southern Miss (Nov. 7), Tulsa (Nov. 12), SMU (Nov. 14) and UTEP (Nov. 27).
The Knights open the 2010 season Aug. 27-28 at the Florida Gulf Coast Tournament in Ft. Myers. During the event, UCF will take on Houston Baptist, the host Eagles and Bethune-Cookman.
