Pittsburgh, Pa. – Carlow University and the Pittsburgh Riverhounds have entered into an agreement for the Carlow Celtics’ soccer team to play their 2013 home schedule at the Riverhounds’ Highmark Stadium, a 3,500-seat facility located at Station Square.

“Highmark Stadium is an outstanding venue, and the team looks forward to defending our 2012 championship there,” said Carlow Celtic head coach Marcus Pollidore, who is in his seventh season with Carlow.

The Carlow Celtics, a member of the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (KIAC) in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), finished its 2012 campaign with a record of 15-3-1, won the conference championship, and qualified for the NAIA national tournament.

“This has been a long process but well worth it,” said George Sliman, Carlow’s director of Athletics. “I want to thank the Riverhounds for providing this opportunity. It will be an excellent venue for our fans and we hope to attract new fans to Carlow Soccer. We are an institution founded and thriving in Pittsburgh and we will now play in the premier soccer venue in Pittsburgh! We look forward to building our relationship with the Riverhounds and promoting soccer in our home town.”
