IRVING, TEXAS – Old Dominion will host to the 2017 Men's Soccer and 2018 Women's Tennis Conference USA tournaments as announced by the conference office Thursday afternoon.

ODU is familiar with hosting C-USA tournaments having previously held the 2013-14 Women's Tennis, 2014 Men's Soccer and the 2014-15 Men's Tennis tournaments.

The last time Old Dominion hosted the men's soccer tournament at the ODU Sports Complex in Norfolk, Va., the Monarchs used the home field advantage to claim the 2014 C-USA Tournament Title, the first C-USA title for the ODU athletic program after joining the conference.

In the C-USA men's soccer tournament seven teams advance to the single-elimination tournament with the No. 1 seed receiving a first round bye. Competition dates are set for Wednesday, Friday and Sunday to allow a day between quarterfinals, semifinals and the championship final.

The format for the women's tennis tournament will be a four-day single elimination tournament featuring all 14 teams, with the top two seeds receiving a bye. Matches shall consist of six singles and three doubles with doubles matches first and singles following. The winner of the single-elimination tournament gains the league's automatic bid to the NCAA Championship.
