The men's and women's soccer teams will holding their second annual "Night of Nets" on Saturday, October 1st.  The women's game will begin at 12pm vs. Siena Heights and the men's team will also be playing Siena Heights at 2:30pm. 
Each $6 admission fee to today's men's and women's soccer games will purchase an insecticide-treated bed net that will aid in the prevention of the spread of malaria in some of the places globally most affected by one of the world's great health pandemics.

Here are a few facts about malaria and its impact upon the lives of children that will help you understand why the soccer community at CU is so excited about using the platform of soccer to provide bed nets…

Fact: Malaria is preventable, but causes nearly 500 million illnesses each year and kills more than 1 million of those who become infected. Fact: Ninety percent of deaths caused by malaria occur in Africa, where the disease is a leading killer of children and spread by mosquito bites children receive while they are sleeping. Every 30 seconds a child in Africa dies from malaria. 2,000 children everyday are lost to a disease that can be prevented.
