MILWAUKEE - Family and friends helped the Marquette University men's and women's soccer teams kick off their respective 2014 seasons at the their annual Fan Fest celebration on a beautiful Thursday evening at Valley Fields.

The sun was shining as hundreds from the Milwaukee community came out to support the Golden Eagles. Players and coaches from both teams took pictures, signed autographs, hosted interactive soccer stations and mingled with dedicated Marquette Soccer fans, young and old. Everyone in attendance was treated to free Qdoba and a variety of fun activities.

Later in the evening, fans packed the stands to watch both squads play. The women's soccer team took the pitch first, playing a full exhibition match against Wisconsin, while halftime featured an intrasquad men's Blue vs. Gold scrimmage.

The men will be back in action at 1 p.m. Central time on Sunday, Aug. 17, when they host Tulsa at Valley fields in their first true exhibition match of the fall. The women will host Loyola-Chicago in their 2014 season opener at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, August 22.
