U.S. Soccer announced today that the U.S. Men’s National Team will train at Princeton’s Roberts Stadium from May 17 to 23.
Players should be popping up around town on the 15th, according to a news release, but practices will be closed to the public.
The team’s coach, New Jersey native Bob Bradley ’80, led the Princeton men’s soccer team in scoring during his senior year. He later came back to coach at his alma mater from 1984 to 1995, an 11 year reign in which the Tigers won the Ivy League title twice. In 1993, the team reached the Final Four.
Another reason Bradley may have picked Princeton? His brother, Scott Bradley, is Princeton’s head baseball coach.
