The Kansas State soccer team moved its season opening soccer match to Saturday against Oklahoma State following the cancelation of their Friday game against Texas Tech.

Both of the Red Raider’s goalkeepers tested positive for COVID-19, postponing the match. All schools in the Big 12 Conference and conference officials agreed losing all goalkeepers was one of two reasons a team could postpone or reschedule a game.

With the hole in the schedule, both K-State and Oklahoma State agreed to move their previously scheduled match on Nov. 6 up to 7 p.m. Saturday. The teams received confirmation from the Big 12.

The teams will play at Buser Family Park.

Seating capacity for the game will be limited to 25 percent for the match. Fans are encouraged to socially distance from other pods of fans and face coverings are required. Tickets will go on sale one hour before kickoff.
