Mayor's Cup Returns August 22nd

Huntsville's cross-town rival college soccer teams, Alabama A&M and Alabama-Huntsville, haven't played each other since 2000. Now, the derby known as the Mayor's Cup will return as the sides will meet on August 22nd at 5PM at A&M's Bulldog Field. Officially, the match will be an exhibition, but bragging rights will still be up for grabs, although history has shown a mostly one-sided affair in favor of A&M. According to UAH's website, A&M hold the series firmly in hand with 18 wins, 4 losses and 1 draw. Here's the year by year breakdown.

  1. I was there in 97,98, and 2000...Interestingly the 2001 match was cancelled because it fell a day or two after 9/11 happened...all of us still wanted to play that game. An unceremonious end to the series...
