The defending Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) champion Grambling State University women’s soccer team announced its 2024 schedule.

The 2024 slate features 20 games, including two contests against opponents from power conferences. 

“We’re looking forward to this season to see if we can continue to compete and grow as a team,” said Head Coach Justin Wagar. “We start out with a challenging slate with seven straight road games to kick off the year including trips to newly added Big 12 foe Arizona State that has qualified for the national tournament in back-to-back seasons, and then we fly to face ACC opponent Boston College.”

The Tigers, who kick off the season on Aug. 15 at LSU-Alexandria, opens the 2024 campaign with seven road games in a row. GSU travels to Southeastern Louisiana on Aug. 16 and Nicholls on Aug. 18. Grambling State returns to Northern Louisiana on Aug. 22 for a showdown at Louisiana-Monroe. 

On Aug. 25, GSU travels across town to take on Louisiana Tech. The Tigers head to the desert to challenge Arizona State on Aug. 29.

Grambling State opens the month of September with a road trip to Lafayette, La. for a in-state battle versus the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns. 

GSU’s home opener is set for Sept. 8 when the Tigers welcome Tarleton State to the GSU Soccer Complex. On Sept. 12 and 15, Grambling State hosts Texas A&M-Commerce and Murray State. The Tigers wrap up the non-conference portion of their schedule with a trip to Boston College on Sept. 19.

SWAC play begins on Sept. 27 when GSU heads to Huntsville, Ala. to face Alabama A&M. The Tigers play Alabama State on Sept. 29.

Grambling State returns home for a pair of games versus Alcorn State (Oct. 4) and Mississippi Valley State (Oct. 6).

After taking a week off, the Tigers head to Baton Rouge, La. for a battle against rival Southern on Oct. 18 before making the trek to Jackson, Miss. to take on Jackson State in a rematch of the 2023 SWAC Championship Game. 

Parents weekend is scheduled to begin on Oct. 25 when Grambling State hosts Prairie View A&M. Senior Day and the home finale is set for Oct. 27 when GSU welcomes Texas Southern to town.
