Cal Poly Mustangs Mens Soccer TicketsThose in the Central Coast get to enjoy having one of the nation’s most popular college soccer teams within its region. In fact, the Cal Poly Mustangs soccer team has been amongst the nation’s leaders in attendance for decades. In 2019, the team averaged 2,017 fans per home match, which ranked fifth nationally. On the pitch, however, the team is still looking to gain the sport’s elite clout. In the 2019 season the Mustangs claimed one NCAA Men’s Soccer Tournament victory out of their three postseason appearances. However, those who faithfully support the team are hopeful that a breakthrough season is on the horizon. If you’d like to take in some quality Big West Conference soccer as well as non-conference matches that the team hosts, make sure to head to Alex G. Spanos Stadium this fall, the only place to watch Division I soccer action between the cities of Santa Barbara and San Jose. Get your Cal Poly Mens Soccer tickets at StubHub.

That figure was the largest for any NCAA match played nationally in more than a year and tied for the 14th-largest regular-season crowd. In fact, Cal Poly’s home match with UC Santa Barbara has sold out Alex G. Spanos Stadium every year since 2011 with all nine of those plus the rivals’ match-up there in 2008 tying for 14th place on that list.

What was the Cal Poly men’s soccer team’s biggest win?Although the definition of "biggest" can be argued, the team’s lone NCAA Men’s Soccer Tournament victory will be viewed by many as the program’s most significant.
