    It’s time to… believe.

    While the fictional character of Ted Lasso himself coaches all the way across the pond, the Lady Vols’ soccer team is bringing the magic to Knoxville. On Wednesday, Sept. 23, Tennessee will be hosting their first-ever “Ted Lasso Night” during the women’s soccer game on campus.

    The first 100 fans through the gate will receive a limited edition Ted Lasso crossover t-shirt. Meanwhile, the first 200 fans through the gate will be receiving a special orange visor. To top it all off, it will also be dollar hot-dog night in the park.

    The Lady Vols (7-1) will take on the Auburn Tigers (7-1) at 7:00 p.m. ET at Tennessee’s Regal Stadium.

    The Lady Vols won their first seven straight games to kick off the season. All of those were non-conference games, and three were on the road. The Lady Vols opened up their SEC schedule when they took on Arkansas, on the road, last Friday. Tennessee lost their SEC opener to Arkansas 3-1. However, the Lady Vols will have the chance to rebound on Wednesday, when they open up conference play in front of their fans in Knoxville.

    Wednesday’s game against Auburn will be Tennessee’s first Ted Lasso theme night, where the fans will have the chance to receive a free t-shirt and visor.
