CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The #4 ranked University of Virginia men’s soccer team was awarded the number four seed for the upcoming 2004 NCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Championship. Virginia (17-4-0), one of 48 teams competing in the NCAA Tournament, will face the winner of the American vs. Long Island match on Tuesday, November 23rd at UVa’s Klockner Stadium in the NCAA Tournament’s second round. The match is scheduled to begin at 7:00 PM. Virginia was one of 16 seeded teams that received a first round bye in the event.

UVa, the 2004 ACC Champions, locked up one of the top four seeds in the NCAA Tournament which means the Cavaliers would play all of their games in the NCAA Tournament at home until the College Cup, which will be held on December 10th and 12th at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

Thanks to its automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament after winning the ACC Tournament again this season, Virginia advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the 24th consecutive year and will be making its 66th appearance in a NCAA Tournament contest. UVa stands 42-21-2 all-time in the history of the NCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Championship. The Cavaliers have won five National Championships after claiming the title in 1989, 1991, 1992, 1993 and 1994.

Here is a look at Virginia’s all-time results in the NCAA Tournament:
