Upcoming Soccer Festival will be last

Posted: Updated:
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA 21) -

The 20th renewal of the National Soccer Festival in Fort Wayne will also be the last.

The departure of longtime sponsor Shindigz is a major reason for the decision that has brought top college soccer talent to Fort Wayne each August since 1999.

The event this year will feature three college games at Saint Francis D'Arcy Stadium on August 17th, and seven more matches, four high school and three college, the following day at Indiana Tech.

Indiana and Michigan State have taken part in all 19 previous Festivals and will be back this year as well.

The schedule:

Aug. 17

At Saint Francis D'Arcy Stadium

Michigan State vs. Xavier, 6 p.m.

Indiana vs. Akron, 8 p.m.

Saint Francis vs. Huntington, 10 p.m.

Aug. 18
