CHAPEL HILL — The N.C. High School Athletic Association will hold its boys soccer state championship matches Nov. 18-19 at Macpherson Stadium in Bryan Park. The boys championships will be held in the Greensboro area for the first time since the championships were played at school sites in the 1980s.
Macpherson Stadium, home to the NC Fusion club, is part of the Truist Soccer Complex at Bryan Park in Browns Summit. The stadium is capable of seating 3,000 and features a press box, scoreboard, team locker rooms, spectator restrooms and concessions. It has been the home of the N.C. Coaches Association East-West boys and girls all-star soccer games for a number of years.
The NHCSAA’s championship matches have been played at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary in recent years.
“Greensboro has a rich history of soccer, and the city is fortunate to have great facilities to host championships,” Richard Beard, president of the Greensboro Sports Foundation, said in a news release “We also have a rich history with hosting all types of NCHSAA championships.”
