The Virginia field hockey team announced its 2022 schedule on Wednesday with a slate that features 17 regular-season games, including nine home contests, and a home scrimmage on August 16 against American.

The Cavaliers will have a challenging schedule that includes 10 matches against 2021 NCAA tournament teams, including road contests against three Final Four teams, playing at reigning champion Northwestern (Sept. 11), at Liberty (Oct. 18) and at Maryland (Oct. 26).

Virginia opens the season on the road at Penn State (Aug. 26) and Delaware (Aug. 28) with its first home contest scheduled for Friday, Sept. 2 against Temple. It will be a homecoming for the Owls’ head coach and assistant coach, UVA alumna Michelle and Carissa Vittese.

Other home contests include James Madison (Sept. 4), Saint Joseph’s (Sept. 18), Syracuse (Sept. 23), Louisville (Sept 30), William & Mary (Oct. 2), Miami Ohio (Oct. 9), Wake Forest (Oct. 14) and Kent State (Oct. 23).

The ACC Championship will take place Nov. 1-4 at Duke. The NCAA Semifinals and Finals will be held this year at UConn.

The broadcast selections, including games appearing on the ACC Network, will be released and posted to VirginiaSports.com once they are determined by the Atlantic Coast Conference and ESPN.
