Mayor’s Cup Soccer Game Scheduled for Aug. 21
August 9, 2013
The Lindenwood University-Belleville men’s soccer team is set to host Southwestern Illinois College in the annual Mayor’s Cup to kick off the 2013 home season. The game will take place August 21 at 5 p.m. on Lindenwood Belleville’s home field. This will mark the fourth-consecutive year the two teams face off in the Mayor’s Cup at LU-Belleville.
Southwestern Illinois heads into this year’s game with an all-time 2-0 lead over the Lynx. SWIC won the inaugural Mayor’s Cup in 2010 and also in 2012, while the 2011 competition ended in a tie.
Mayor Mark Eckert will be attendance, leading the pre-game ceremonies and flipping the official coin. The winning team receives a trophy, which is also displayed in the mayor’s office.
The first 100 fans at the game on August 21 at 5 p.m. will receive a gold polish coin commemorating the fourth annual Mayor’s Cup.
