Portland State University volleyballSpiking at the Viking Pavilion

THE VOLLEYBALL TEAM returns to the comforts of home in the new Viking Pavilion at the Peter W. Stott Center on campus. Under 12-year head coach Michael Seemann, the team stats show it always plays well at home, wherever that may be. The Vikings were 6-2 last year with home matches at Concordia University last year as the Viking Pavilion was under construction.

After hosting three non-conference tournaments starting in August, the volleyball team’s first Big Sky conference game is September 27 against Northern Arizona at the Viking Pavilion. The Vikings continue to host conference matches on Sept. 29; Oct. 11, 13, 18 and 20; and Nov. 1, 3 and 13. Single tickets range from $5 to $20.

Portland State University footballKicking off in Hillsboro

THE FOOTBALL TEAM is playing four of its five home games at Hillsboro Stadium this season.

“Each year we have challenges securing a home schedule at Providence Park, but this year was particularly difficult,” says Valerie Cleary, director of Athletics.

Potential scheduling conflicts with Portland Thorns and Portland Timbers playoff matches, as well as stadium construction, necessitated the move to Hillsboro Stadium. The only home date that is secure at Providence Park is the Oct. 13 matchup with Northern Colorado.

Portland State has used Hillsboro Stadium as a home venue in the past. The 2000 and 2010 seasons were played entirely in Hillsboro due to construction and remodeling of the downtown stadium. PSU also had single dates at Hillsboro Stadium in 2014, 2015 and 2017 due to scheduling conflicts with the Portland Timbers.

The first two home games at Hillsboro Stadium are September 8 and 15. It is also the venue when the Vikings take on Idaho State on Nov. 10 and Eastern Washington on Nov. 16.
