Providence, RI- The Brown men’s soccer team (0-0-1) is hosting the adidas-Brown Soccer Classic presented by Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island, beginning on Friday, Sept. 5 and ending on Sunday, Sept. 7.  Joining Brown on Stevenson Field will be Adelphi University (1-0-1), Southern Methodist University (1-1-0) and Yale (0-0-1).   Tickets are $5 for adults and FREE for all Brown students with a valid student ID and children under the age of 12.

Dining halls are closed for dinner on Friday evening, so anyone not on a meal plan the cost is $12.
